San Diego now has the street view feature on Google maps. You can see what the area looks like from the street.

Just go to Google, clicks 'maps', enter San Diego and click 'street view'.

Why can't I see the cam on my computer. Do I have to adjust the Security settings on my Internet options?

You have to keep zooming in on the map...then hit street view.....click on a street that has blue lines on it and the camera will come up. Not all areas have the street view......i tried my street...it doesn't work.

I'm bumping this thread because Google has just updated Street View with many new streets and neighborhoods in SD, almost the entire city is now covered, it's a great way to research a neighborhood.

You are absolutely right, Sassberto. This is now a tremendous resource, for researching neighborhoods as well as comparing neighborhoods.

I have been lurking on this forum for awhile, as I am contemplating a move to your fair city this fall. The Street View update goes into the residential streets throughout SD, giving me visual images of the information that I have been reading in older threads, as written by the very knowledgeable regulars on the forum. Thank you all very much for your posts.

Coming from rural Kansas, it is often a challenge for me to spot a not-so-desirable area in a city like SD. (Rule #1: Stop looking at the pretty palm trees!) Street View now covers areas like City Heights and much of SESD, so for example it is easier to see that the Teralta sections of CH are rather grim, and many streets in an area like Mountain View are downright ugly. However, Paradise Hills does not look bad (although it seems to be stuck in the 1950's), and North Encanto and Lemon Grove look OK too, as areas where honest, hard-working folks live. Just my opinions, of course.

Very observant, and you are dead-on correct! One thing I've noticed in my time in SD is that those working-class areas get a bad rap in San Diego, because a lot of people are blinded by the gleam of admittedly gorgeous places like La Jolla, Point Loma, Del Mar, etc.
