The Plain Dealer reported today that Cleveland is now included in the list of cities where a “street view” is available using Google Maps. The street view shows you actual images of what you would see on the street if you were standing or driving there yourself. (Don't worry, it's not live!) Just go to this link to Google Maps, type in “Cleveland, Oh” in the search box, and select a location or zoom in to see the “pointer” you can use to carry yourself along the street. Make sure you select the street view box to see the actual street photos.
For many months now, I’ve been traveling the streets of a lot of the major US cities using Google Maps street view – plus seeing many cities and natural wonders of the world using a separate program called Google Earth. It’s interesting and entertaining. So take a few minutes to cruise around the city without the need for a car, without ever leaving your chair.
Here’s the link to the article in the Cleveland Plain Dealer if you’d like more information.
