Lake Fairfield Now in Street View!

All of Greenville, including the Lake Fairfield area, is now available in Google Maps' Street View. If you're not familiar with Street View, Google has sent a van equipped with a special camera to various cities. This van drives up and down the streets taking pictures to create a 360 degree interactive map. In cities that have Street View available, you can click on a street and see the actual street-level view from that location.

Below is an example of a Street View image showing our new cul-de-sac. Click on the "View Larger Map" link to show the image in context.

See if you can find your house! I found ours, and I can tell that the image was taken on a Friday sometime last winter because our garbage can and recycling are on the street corner.

The following image shows the cities that are currently covered in South Carolina. Oddly enough, it doesn't include Charleston or Myrtle Beach - the normal tourist areas of the state.

While it's cool to see your house in Google Maps, it can be a bit unnerving. Google is aware of privacy concerns, and there is a link to report inappropriate images.
