Excuse me while I gush over Google--again! I don’t know what’s gotten into the boys and girls at the Googleplex, but they are rolling out new features like the world is coming to an end. Gulp. Moving on: Google has 3D photo textures of nearly every building in Manhattan.

To try this insane feature out for yourself, fly to "New York City" and turn on the 3D Buildings layer in Google Earth. (Use the link below for help.) Just a year ago only a few buildings were represented. Now it’s possible to virtually fly above the streets. Amazing.
