Google Maps Street Views

All I can say is “Simply Amazing.” Google Maps is already a great tool and now Google has even made it better for New Yorkers and those planning to visit New York. There is a new feature called “Street View,” where you can drag an orange figure along the major streets of Manhattan and take a virtual walk in which you can pan, rotate, and zoom onto street photos. Here is screenshot of Times Square:

Go here to take a test run of the new Google feature. All the major streets of Manhattan are covered, while only some of the major roads in the other boroughs are currently covered. If you need help in using the new feature go to the Google Map Demo site, which also features street tours of other major U.S. cities.

    Thanks for the heads up on this cool feature. I was able to virtually walk to the place of my interview for next week.

  • I totally agree.. the Street View capability is like no mapping feature before it. It’s a virtual vay-cay. They just need to ‘do’ paris now.
