Google street view is now available in Louisville,I consider it a great tool even better than Birds Eye View by Windows Live Local and it has expanded more area than before of most large American cities.

I found my grandmother's house in the Saint Matthews area of Louisville on Ridgeway avenue and found Waggener High School where I graduated (1974) on Hubbards lane and many other places.

Come back! I have traveled to Jville and much prefer Lville! Anyways, street view is a valuable tool, but they did not explore many of our suburbs including La Grange. I may make this a stick to remind people. Street view is as good or better than driving certain streets (at least in 2007 when it was taken)!

Well, great. Now I am totally addicted!

I found it a little odd that Washington, DC isn't listed yet. Maybe security reasons?

I had fun with it taking a virtual ride down Bardstown Road. I can't get back this year, so it's the next best thing :-)

More than likely.

This creps me out. still cool though. Microsoft is big brother? yeah right, google has taken that title long ago, Gmail which is googles email client. Records what you type in an email and will place advertisements accordingly. Talking to an uncle about computers, you get a computer ad....

Cruising through Louisville with Street View was a great help to us when looking for a place to live. I would recommend it to anyone considering a move from another state. True, it doesn't extend into some of the outer areas like La Grange, but most of Louisville's streets are available.

Louisville has so many neighborhoods, with such a variety of architecture and layout. Someone who's never been to the city, or only been there once, maybe for an interview, wouldn't know where to start. Am I more comfortable on streets lined with trees and early century homes? Do I like the energy and bustle of the city with its lovingly restored old buildings and warehouses? Am I looking for eclectic shops and cafes with tables out front where people relax and pass the time of day? Do I want something contemporary, yet still within the city limits? I felt I could actually sense the pulse of some of the neighborhoods. Those were where I was most comfortable and wanted to start looking first.

Coming here to this forum was the beginning. Finding listings online and returning here to ask questions gave me insight and a sense of direction. Then seeing what the neighborhoods looked like from street level helped narrow down the search. This process sure saved both time and gas for our realtor and us.

Now, I virtually drive around other neighborhoods to see what I missed.
