This view can be seen on the Microsoft Terraserver by clicking here, or smaller, faster loading version here.
The Terraserver allows you to zoom in or out, and move around to anywhere in the country.  You can zoom in much closer than what is shown in this picture.  If your house was built by June of 1993 you should be able to locate it.
Images are provided by the US Geological Services.

Individual buildings downtown are too small and close together to point out.
