Google Street View Reaches Broad Avenue

I've always been jealous of people who lived in major cities because they were the only ones who had Google Street View. I think it was super cool that you could virtually drive around the New York City. And it is especially useful for when you needed to find an obscure store or directions.

Well, I found out last week that Street View is now available in Palisades Park, Fort Lee, Edgewater, and a bunch of other nearby towns in Bergen County. Not only that, but Google took a picture of my car, the sexy Rhonda!

Drive around your neighborhood, maybe you'll find something interesting!

Not sure of what Street View is or how it's done? Then read more....

For those of you who don't know, Google Street View is a viewing option on Google Maps that gives you a street-level view of streets. They do it by driving around in a car with a 360-degree camera mounted on the roof. It hit major cities first, but as you can see, they're slowly driving all around America.

Also, as you can imagine, some people have seen some crazy things on Google Street View. This website has compiled some of the best finds on Street View.
