Yea, there's a lot of small out of the way areas missing too.. I wish it was a little more complete, only because I love just clicking around and looking at different areas. I was trying to see my friend's house in Hamilton Beach, but it's conveniently missing.

They probably were getting shot at or about to be carjacked lol. They left out small parts of South Jamaica too it jumps down the block or just ends, the same thing happened with East New York.

I always thought it was funny that parts of Brownsville, Soundview, and Concourse was missing. It's not like they're staying there for long, just pass through and take your pictures lol.
