The Old Neighborhood

My, has it changed.

I was looking up some of my old stomping grounds using Google’s Street View feature just to see how they have changed over the years. While many of them were nothing to really write home about, an image from one neighborhood in particular caught my eye.

Take a look at this gem that Google snapped on the street I used to live on in Bellflower, CA (click to embiggen):


You can see the entire neighborhood by clicking here. (Note that the address on the link is not mine nor does it imply it is where the subject lives; it’s just the location of where the image was taken.) When I lived on that street, it was a rare occasion indeed when we saw the po-po and I had heard that over the years, the street had gotten really bad in terms of crime. I guess this image all but confirms it. What’cho gonna do when the come for you…*

I thought this one was pretty good, too. This is at the only traffic circle in the area (or roundabout for you in the UK):


Someone obviously didn’t use their turn signal when they wiped out the sign.

I also looked up some more famous places but I won’t post any images here. After all, nothing seen in Hollywood should shock anybody.

Google Maps: good times guaranteed!

  1. It’s insane what those cameras capture. My friend looked up his own address and saw himself walking his dog. Not quite as cool as the police arresting somebody, but still pretty good.


    1. It is kinda creepy when you think about it. In fact I looked up where I currently live and saw my neighbor gardening in her front yard.

      We indeed live in different times. So just watch where you pick your nose.
