Make your way to downtown Albany. Open the "Albany: Then & Now" app on your mobile phone and click on the "View Map" button. On the map you’ll see red arrows which represent the more than 130 historical photographs in our collection. Each arrow shows where sometime in the past a photographer stood and took a picture of the city’s landscape. Most of the photographs are around 100 years old.
Using the map as a guide, walk to one of the marked locations. The center of the arrow indicates where the photographer stood. The direction of the arrow shows which way the photographer was facing. Do your best to stand in the same spot and face the same direction as the photographer did.
On the map, press the red arrow. Voilà! The image that you’re seeing is exactly what the photographer saw years ago while standing in the same location! For more details about the photograph, press the "Details" button.
Repeat! Walk to the different arrows on the map to view more photographs! Have fun!

The app launch coincides with the arrival of the 2012 Fireball Run: Northern Exposure in Schenectady, NY.
In June, 2012 Don Rittner walked into the Troy Web office with an idea. He wanted to create a mobile application to help locate missing children. From that idea the “Missing Children of New York” mobile app was born. The app is the result of Don’s vision and design, Troy Web’s volunteered technical expertise, and the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children’s missing children data. Its launch coincides with the arrival of the 2012 Fireball Run: Northern Exposure in Schenectady, NY. A special thanks also goes out to Gloria Coppola of the NYS Police Troop G - Major Crimes, Loudonville, NY.
