I must say, the 3D version of NYC in Google Earth has come a loooooong way in the last year. Basically, Google has completed nearly every building in Manhattan Island for Google Earth. Just fly to “New York City” and turn on the 3D Buildings layer in Google Earth.

Apparently Google has filled in the gaps left by the modelers who created the rest of the 3D buildings in NYC. To view NYC in Google Earth, fly to “New York City” and turn on the 3D Buildings layer.
