Default Google Street View

Anyone noticed the new street view on google maps? It's gotta be one of the coolest things I've seen in a long time.

yeah, the satalite view has been up for a while, but the street view? That's crazy how you can pan around the location, go up the street & down the street. So freakin cool

Google Street View has been available since May 2007. They have slowly been expanding to include more cities and areas (Sacramento was added in June of 2008).
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Google_Street_View

There is also a topographical map and a traffic map for (some) of the freeways.

If you do some searching you can find all sorts of things like car crashes, hookers(?), and even a girl flashing [it was SFW but image removed, boo!] on Google Maps.

Look here for more: http://googlesightseeing.com/

crazy stuff. I happened to look up a location of one of our offices to give directions to a client and noticed this. Since, I've been checking all sorts of address. My home is not on the street view. Thanks Chip for the wiki article.

What was the website you found? It was strange looking up my address and finding a picture of my car in the driveway.
