Google Maps’ Streetview [Nearly] Completes LA

Per Zach’s post at LAist, I can now find my house on Google Streetview:

The quality of the images are much better too — here’s a great example of how ridiculous it is that my street is one-way: look at what the mailman has to do to get out the way of the Googmobile!

They did miss a couple of the smaller dead-end streets near me, but still — very cool. Now all I want is to be able to embed real-time traffic overlays!
