Same. I've encountered that glitch in many places. Clicking a bit closer will generally skip that.

Am I missing something? The only interesting thing I see in that photo is the "only" sign, which has nothing to do with Google Street View.

There's a lot going on here: https://www.google.com/maps/@41.0318088,-73.7619021,3a,75y,182.43h,90t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1s6qohyuY1Kl8zrx3lSKLOqQ!2e0!7i16384!8i8192



I've been through that intersection.  It works a lot smoother than the sign makes it out to. :D

That road to the left sure doesn't look like I-287 to me...

An Italian mob boss on the run for 20 years was caught after GSV inadvertently captured imagery of him hiding in Spain.

Wow, that is... awesome? scary? I don't know. Pretty crazy in any case.

I'm not sure how that works. They probably blurred it before publishing the imagery, but not necessarily immediately, so someone could have seen it. The article also says he was identified by a scar on his chin.

I imagine if law enforcement wants an unblurred image from Google all they have to do is ask.

Well I think the question is, how did they know to ask, since it was blurred? But I'm guessing that someone was able to recognize him, even though it was blurred.

I know glitches like this are common, but this one for Mannheannheim Rd look so slick that it appears real.

What's the correct plural of BGS, anyway, BGSes? BGSs? BGS's?

Although these are probably more like... BGPs?

Cool find. Alternatively, you could just write BGS, since the S can mean "signs" instead of "sign".

Example: "That is a nice set of BGS!"

That sounds downright sensible. I think I'll do just that.
