D.C. has changed. That's not just a Dave Chappelle bit, that's architectural fact. Even in the seven years since Google has started photographing the world for their Google Street View function, old buildings have seen new life, landmarks have met the wrecking ball and new projects have risen from the dirt. Now, Google gives you the opportunity to flip back at those snapshots of the city. Click on the top in the upper lefthand corner when you're in Google Street View and you'll be able to flip through older photos from that location in their archives. It's like a yearbook, but far less embarrassing. Take a look at some notable changes after the jump.
