Is it just me, or would it be awesome to be able to click on any of the little dots in the New York map and have it take you to that place's google maps page?

For example, for the Apple Store SoHo, either...

or

http://maps.google.c...10&cid=40714167,-74006389,7395048764517534448&radius=0.000000&hl=en&ie=UTF-8

as i have said before, for better or worse, google maps is the starbuxization of cartography...
the satellite maps are nuts.

The satellite maps are almost frighteningly nuts. This weekend I found something cool using the satellite map to check which side of the street something was on - map something in the Castro in San Francisco (san francisco ca 94114), click the satellite link, and zoom in all the way. Looks like a busy day at Castro + Market...

wayne, that's awesome! i knew someone must have thought of that first =) i think the maybe the reason i missed it is because the arrow things ( ยป ) are so small. is there any particular reason that the whole address isn't a link?
