I don't live down a cow path! I live on a street with a real paved road and everything... Sheesh. We use this all the time while flat hunting in New York. Really helps there. Here? Not so much.

My bad; just relaying what I read that explains why the street view is incomplete. Maybe you could try "report a problem" so Google can fix it? There should be a link there somewhere...

If it's any consolation, we have no street view on an arterial path that vehicles in our area always use.

And yes, the papers did report that the smaller venues would be traversed by tricycles in the coming months. And another series of pics would be uploaded once the IR's are finished.

Sorry; this picture isn't really in Singapore. Just thought it's funny* that somebody's house burning is immortalized in the web.


* it's funny because it's not my house :twisted:
