Did anybody else notice that some of the street view options now have multiple years available?

Are you referring to how various Pittsburgh streets can by seen on 2012, then if you turn a corner can be seen on 2011, or something along those line? Or are you talking about something else?

No, Street View now has a slider that lets you choose between the most recent time and a number of times in the past going back to 2007.

For instance, for this view of the Casino, you can go back the view before it was built.

That's fantastic, I hoped that they would make historical imagery available at some point. Can you imagine how awesome this'll be in 30 years?

Hah, I had an internship at Allegheny General Hospital in 2005 and I remember parking in that big lot where the Casino stands now and shuttle buses would take us to AGH.

Really cool feature. I tried my street out and there is images from last year and then 2007 and I was able to see what it looked like three years before I moved in.

I agree, this will great in 30 years. Even in 10 years.

I noticed that a week ago. Cool to see how much more improved some areas are. When I have nothing to do at work, one of my hobbies is to play around on Google Street View.
