Google Hits the Streets

Google Street View has come to the Twin Cities. It looks like the photos were taken sometime this past July. One clue is that my yard looks a bit parched.
Another, and more poignant, clue is the view shown above (click to enlarge): my exit, to work, off the 35W bridge before its collapse. Interesting to contemplate how Google now has this bridge preserved in a very detailed and interactive manner.

  1. Kris – other roads in street view leading to the bridge are blocked with police presence. So some photos were taken post-collapse.
