Google Maps: Street Views

Right now, I’m cruising down Broadway in New York City. Just a few minutes ago, I was in Las Vegas checking out the strip around The Venetian and Treasure Island. This is really cool!

The zoom isn’t that great, although that probably has something to do with privacy groups freakin’ out about this new thing.

Below is a screenshot where I was checking out Columbus Circle / 8th Avenue in New York City. You can even stroll through Central Park with this thing.

Columbus Circle / 8th Avenue, New York City

 

It looks like the cities are very limited right now. I’m only able to see San Francisco, Las Vegas, Denver, New York City, and Miami when I click the Street View button on Google Maps. It would be really neat if one day we are able to look up the address of a hotel we are interested in staying at and see what it really looks like.

As usual, thanks Google!
