Google just launched street views for Google Maps. It is pretty pretty cool.

I tried it in NYC, and they mapped all the streets. Here in Suffern, NY, they didn’t do all that much yet. But they did get within a thousand feet or so from my office.

This is a video demonstrating how if you go north on Airmont, and hang a left, my office building is right there. But you can’t go north enough to see my office, yet.

Using Street View
In certain locations, you can view and navigate within street-level imagery. Here’s how:
– Blue outlines show roads where street view is available.
– This icon shows where you are on the map. The green arrow points in the direction you’re looking. You can drag the icon to navigate to a different location. You can also just click on a blue outlined road to go there.
– Drag the street view to look around 360°. Use the arrow buttons to navigate down the street. You can also use the arrow keys on the keyboard.

    I’m trying to find the views like they showed on the news, the actual map with the streets you could click onto. I want to find certain streets I used to live on a one time in San Fran before I moved in 1967. How do I find the street map and I can click onto Ca.and 25th Ave, Bocana, Rolph, Alabama and the likes and where I used to work on Ca. and Grant, and up on Stockton in the topless club area, no I wasn’t a dancer, the company was up there in little Italy area. How do I just get to the streets and click on and hope they have the camera.They showed these on CBS #5 the other nite. Also Church street just before 30th. in the Mission.
