    I've used Google Street View quite a bit to research and describe the surroundings for the novel I'm completing. It's odd how they have images shot in different years mixed together as you move along a street. For instance, this is how this Pizza store in Astoria, Queens appears in June 2009, but when you move one click ahead up the street, the picture changes to one taken September 2011, and the corner is under construction. Store is still there, though.

    Dummy, I said I clicked ahead. When you do that you'd be looking at a different angle. icon_wink.gif
