    High Resolution Images of Kodak Park

    Bing Maps has some really great, high resolution aerial imagery of Kodak Park (and the surrounding area), including a very detailed "bird's eye view." The size and complexity of the infrastructure is rather incredible.

    Enjoy!

    I can see clearly now, the veil has gone...

    Center the image on Lake Ave and Ridge Rd here: http://www.bing.com/maps/default.asp...cl=1&encType=1

    The building on the corner is B-38, the large coating facility at KP.

    North is a circular structure which is the George Eastman Memorial and just north of that is B-59, the old Research Labs where most film coating R&D is done. Just north of that is B-9 which was demolished about 2 years ago. The road that runs in front of B-9 is Hanford Landing Rd. If you continue left on it and look north, that entire complex that is/was there was all the paper mill and the paper coating facility.

    If you go north again, and look for the causeway over Lake Ave, you are looking at the new research complex. The chip making facility is there as are a number of synthetic chemistry and analytical chemistry divisions.

    BTW, this web site is unreliable and has crashed my web browser twice.

    BTW, thanks for commenting, PE! I was hoping you'd point out some of the uses and locations for the various buildings (specifically B-38!). I had no idea Kodak operated their own paper mill. Sorry about the crashes, but as Kirk pointed out, Bing is in fact a Microsoft product.

    With Google Maps, however, you can do street view, and actually take a virtual stroll around the complex!

    Thanks P.E.!

    After I looked at Kodak Park, I took a stroll around Rochester and found the places that I lived.

    Thanks,

    Both Bing and Microsoft Virtual Earth crash continually on my computer. Google maps does not.

    If you want more information, travel out Ridge Road going west and come to the RR tracks across Ridge Road. Just on the south edge of Ridge is a large complex. This is/was Eastman Organic Chemicals division where most dyes, couplers and many vitamins were made. It was a custom shop for Kodak Park.

    If you look at the corner of Dewey and Ridge, the large building in the lower portion of the scene on Dewey was B-69 home of Photographic Technology where all new processes and equipment were internally tried before release. Just a tad north of B-69 was B-65 which was once the entire photo processing plant of EK including Kodachrome. It was also torn down. I have photos of both going down having been a guest with ring side seat to the demolition last year.

    These photos are about 3 - 4 years old at least, maybe more.

    What's most noticeable is the emptiness of the car-parks also looks like some buildings have been demolished.
