Your neighbours house just got robbed , would you feel comfortable with complete strangers drving around in a car taking pictures of your house to put on the internet where evrey Tom,Dick and Harry can see?
The villagers are "Paranoid"? That's insulting and condescending. What ever happened to the "right to privacy"? Nosy people have plenty of options for their voyeurism. Get off your lazy behinds and GO somehwere!
I was irritated when I found out my street had just streetviewed. 1st, I missed seeing the vehicle, I wanted to see it in person. 2nd, I didn't get to flash my junk at the camera/post a humorous sign for all to see! *shakes fist* D:
I think the problem is the immediate availability of these images if someone wanted to use them for crime. Sure...if a criminal wanted to case houses he would have to drive down the street. These pictures help him to do a better job of it. When you are driving down the street you only have a few seconds to glance at something. Here you have all day to study the images and make a plan for gaining entry and escape.
I say downtown New York...fine...millions of photos have already been taken of that destination. That's a tourist spot. When it comes to private residence nobody is going to want to look down every single street in every single town. I think the should not be allowed to do this to residential streets. It just isn't needed.
63635: Well...judging by your nic you already see yourself as a barcode. You are just another number. When they drive through your neighbourhood make sure you invite them into your home so they can catalogue all of your belongings. Don't forget to add all the metadata as well. I am sure they would appreciate that detail in the shopping list.
Ban maps; it allow thefts to find my house and plan an escape route if I ran out with a shotgun. Ban school, I don't want future thefts learn how to read so they would miss my "Beware of Dogs" and “Shot on sight” sign.
I'll do that. But I'll be sure include the Mossberg 12ga and it's corresponding box of buckshot that'll reign firey hell into his ass if the stupid son of a bitch ever decides to rob me based on pics Google provided.

if your neighbor got robbed, then your house has ALREADY been staked out. I wouldn't really care about pictures of my house being on the internet because people have been getting robbed for years without Google Street View. If anything, I'd appreciate the fact that people can find my house easily when I have people over.
