10 Before-and-After Photos of Downtown Phoenix Captured by Google Maps

Downtown Phoenix has changed quite a bit over the last seven years.

Since Google first sent its Street View cameras through the streets of downtown Phoenix in 2007, buildings have gone up, others have come down, and other areas have completely changed. Now that the Street View car came back through Phoenix this year, we can compare the changes over the years. Check out 10 before-and-after photos of downtown, as captured by Google Street View:
