This website is very high-tech in displaying each location with the picture in the background and scrolling once by reading the next page. Each location are explained in details that are not like a long boring text to read like in one of the article. However, it is a whole collection of people explaining each of their experience with the location that have visited. There is a map that it shows the location of the place they mentioned in the text. The images that is behind can be moved by your mouse or hand. Showing the bird’s eye view, like the google globe that goes endless with right and left.

However I believe that it some how shows different aspect in where the background map moves when you drag it, which is cool that people who made this kind of technology should do it for different borough, such as Brooklyn. Sure, Brooklyn Heights is fun. However, there is so much more in different locations. By reading articles from different people, I am sure that however reading it would lead them to the location that they want to see.

Small summary about the Brooklyn Heights which it explains the architecture and the history behind the location. It contains more picture than the text itself, because showing beauty with words is different than showing the actual place if that person been to. In addition, comparing it to different source, each pictures is taken differently in perspective angles. It also has a link to some of the words that the author included, so that readers can understand what he means on the website.

This article also relates to our project, because it shows the different perspective of pictures. It have taken from different angles and some are taken at night to show the difference in day and night. I think that this little description is good enough to say to the people who wants to visit Brooklyn Heights, because giving off too much could lead the reader to know everything, which I am sure that they want to figure out things themselves.
