Tracking Classic NYC Album Art

Visual News reports the existence of a website called PopSpots, where the real estate agent Bob Egan figures out the exact New York locations where various classic album-cover shots were taken. And Egan doesn’t just find the basic location; he finds the exact spot, often superimposing the album-cover image over its current-day location. He’s done it with things like Bob Dylan’s The Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan and Highway 61 Revisited, Neil Young’s After The Gold Rush, the West Side Story soundtrack, and the Who’s The Kids Are Alright, and the amount of detective work and Google Earth skills required to pull these images off is just nuts.
