More US Cities Get Street View

After a huge roll out of street view in Australia and Japan today Google have also announced street view imagery for more than 30 US cities. The new cities include New Orleans (LA), Baton Rouge (LA), El Paso (TX), Wichita (KS), Savannah (GA), and Colorado Springs (CO).

The Google LatLong Blog also says that "to give you even more of a reason to explore Street View, we've hidden a special surprise somewhere in our US imagery so keep your eyes peeled as you take in the views!" I suspect that the 'Easter egg' they are referring to is this street view of Google employees outside the Googleplex (with no face blurring).

Here are Some Interesting Street Views

Ramsay Street (from the Australian soap Neighbours)
Surfer's Paradise, Sydney, Australia
The Australian War Memorial, Canberra, Australia
New Orleans French Quarter and St Louis Cathedral
Louisiana State Capitol, Baton Rouge
Garden of the Gods, Colorado Springs
