Where Should Google Street View Go Next?

I’m a big fan of Google Street View, and I love checking out parts of the city that I’ve never visited.  DC has been on Street View for about a year now, but there are still some missing links that just aren’t accessible with Google’s camera car. Luckily, they’ve developed a Street View Trike that can now reach previously inaccessible places like pedestrian malls, universities, theme parks, and trails.

Where would you like to see the Street View Trike?  Google is asking for your submissions through October 28th, and then the public will vote for the top locations.  We’ve got a number of strong contenders in the area: the grounds of the White House, the National Mall, Arlington National Cemetery, the Zoo, etc.  So speak up and tell Google what you’d like to see on Street View!

Shannon grew up in the greater DC area/Maryland suburbs, went to Virginia for college and grad school (go Hoos!), and settled in DC in 2006. She’s an urban planner who loves transit (why yes, that is her dressed as a Metro pylon for Halloween), cities, and all things DC. Email her at Shannon (at) WeLoveDC.com!

  1. Maybe, in the next 50 years, our kids will get to see how the world was 50 years ago. Wish they had internet and street view some 100 years back. Memories preserved! LOL…
