This Google Maps mashup is a fascinating look at life and culture on (all) the streets of Detroit created by the Detroit Free Press staff. The story is told through video, sound, music and photos all plotted to a Google Map for you to explore. This is one of the best video/photo essays I've seen since it really gave me a vibe for the city when I used it. Related: Google Maps Street View: Detroit and Google NewsMaps
