Our door is open and you can see inside out house. Yikes. Well not really that much. My car is in the driveway but you can't make out the license plate.

Gen, that is so cool! I just looked at my sisters house (actually she just closed on it last week) but I could also see my brothers house next door to hers on Clinton St in Deering Center! I could also see her business on Custom House wharf. Very fun, thanks for the update.

I just checked it out - don't understand the fascination. It's not real time obviously - no snow banks on Cumberland Ave! Also found it very hard to maneuver around.

For as cool as this sort of thing is, it also creeps me out. Also, I thought that it was illegal for them (Google) to show people on these street maps? Unless they gave their consent, of course.

Interesting... they didn't come down our street, but were on a major one nearby. From the signs, I'd say they were out about mid-2007.
