google street viewThey say a picture is worth a thousand words… Google announced today their new Street View option on their popular Google Maps. This handy view allows you to see 360 degrees at street level, giving you an awesome perspective. Find restaurants, hotels, bus stops, etc using this handy tool.

In searching for my brother’s pad on the Upper East Side, the street numbers were off, but some simple clicking on the arrows up the street got me to his front door. Freaky.

Currently this service is offered for NYC, San Francisco Bay area, Miami, Denver, and Las Vegas and will expand to other metro areas, according to Google.

Go ahead, take a virtual citywalk…
