Google Powers NYCgo.com : New York City Info Portal

The City of New York has launched NYCGo.com, an uber-mashup information hub which uses Google Maps and Google Earth to power its local search and NYC navigation services. NYCGo takes advantage of Google Maps & StreetView to help tourists locate tourist attractions, hotels, events and restaurants. The site of course is accessible via iPhone, Smart Phones and other mobile devices.

Along with the launching of the site, NYCgo has opened the New York City Information Center, which is located near Times Square.

Here’s a video about the new launch :

New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg adds to the Google Blog :

In partnership with Google, we are launching a new website and Information Center to help make it easier for both visitors and residents to explore all the energy, excitement and diversity of New York City’s five boroughs. nycgo.com is the official resource on the web for all there is to see, do and experience in the City. This dynamic site uses Google Maps to help you plan your New York experience and find hotels, restaurants and entertainment, in addition to exclusive citywide savings and promotions. With nycgo.com you can use Google Maps to get directions to attractions throughout the City, and even send the info to your phone with Google Maps for mobile.
