New Jersey at L, Looking East (see more)

Hey, kids, d'ya like the "slider"-type displays that take two photos of the same location and allow you to scroll across the two photos to compare the differences?
Do you like them even more if they are made with images that are actually in focus and not washed out, and aren't taken by robots with fish-eye lenses, as some offerings out there are?
Then you are in luck, because the crack JDLand staff of developers has finally come up with a more automated way to display sliders of various locations around the neighborhood.
You can now watch for them on project pages, in the Photo Archive, and even via a browseable list.
It also means there's another way to see and inspect my oldest photos in a larger format, which is a nice addition.
I hope to next come up with a way to add them into the random before-and-after display on the JDLand home page, but for now, I'm at least glad that the light bulb went on for how to make using them a much less onerous process. (Actually *creating* them is not quite as easy, though--but I'm going to keep slowly plugging away at making them for all of my favorite angles.)
Right here is where you'd think I'd include one or two of them--alas, they won't work in a blog post. But here's thumbnails of just some of the locations that have been slider'ed, so click a thumbnail and slide away, and note that below the sliders are the full lineup of photos I've taken for that location, proving that the sliders aren't faked (these days, you never know what people will be suspicious of!). More to come.
Then browse the whole list, which is also filterable by street.
UPDATE: I'm continuing to add them, so I've made the list of sliders sortable by date, most recent additions/updates first.

These are fantastic! Thanks, JD! I particularly love the one comparing 200 I Street to its previous life as the Old Post Plant.


JD says: (12/17/15 4:59 PM)
Thanks. I think they are way cool, and as you can tell, I am genuinely excited about coming up with a way for them to be more visible. Making them is fun, even if it's arduous.

Even works on Android phone by tapping the photo. Nice!

South Cap and P looking East is pretty remarkable too, going from the elevated bridge to the new ballpark.


JD says: (12/18/15 9:27 AM)
I also added last night ones at Half N looking east and looking west.

The best ones are where there's some landmark in both of them, to make the transition more clear, but there's a finite number of spots where something is left from when I started taking pictures!


dude says: (12/18/15 3:03 PM)
Usually I'm pretty good at the internet, but umm, when I click on the ones above I get taken to a page that has two pictures side by side and that's it. Someone help! (I'm using Safari if that matters.)


JD says: (12/18/15 3:05 PM)
No, you caught me screwing stuff up. Try it again now.


dude says: (12/18/15 3:06 PM)
Of course one minute later I see them and they are working perfectly! These are really cool. Thanks for putting in the hard work for us.

My favorite part is that my apt at 70 I ST where I lived for a few years is on there and so is current house on L ST. Cool!


JD says: (12/18/15 3:11 PM)
I of course decided to completely rebuild the back-end structure of the Sliders right as I'm encouraging people to look at them.


JD says: (12/18/15 4:51 PM)
I've come up with a way to have smaller versions of the sliders appear at the (desktop) JDLand home page, but randomized to only show up every so often (in the box where the side-by-side before-and-afters usually appear). If and when you see a slider display there, let me know if it's working right for you.


JD says: (12/18/15 11:03 PM)
Also, I added a new one, looking south at Half and M:

The smaller versions are working for me.
