Google Street View now in Los Angeles

It’s about time!

Google Maps Street View has finally made it to my home town of Los Angeles. This means that people around the world can now zoom in on Los Angelenos going about their day and doing the thing that Los Angelenos do, whatever that might be.

Naturally, a number of enthusiasts have already been scouring the Los Angeles footage for the bizarre and wacky, as well as quintessential slices of LA captured by the roving Google van.

So far the diligent mapophiles have discovered storm troopers on Hollywood Boulevard and a knife sharpening van parked in front of O.J. Simpson’s old house on Rockingham.

Naturally I checked out the place I lived and was relieved to discover there are no incriminating photographs of me doing something stupid. Yet.
