NOTE (June 2010): Google's overhead photography is obsolete; MapQuest's overhead photography is less so, reflecting the demolition of previous buildings; neither of them shows the new buildings which have since been completed.  Bing Maps birds-eye view is unavailable, and its overhead photography is the same as that of MapQuest.
