Google New Street Views Almost Reaches RustyBrick
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.
