celebrityaddressaerial.com is about two years old. It offered its addresses and images for free for a while, but now charges $9.99/month for what its webmaster calls entertainment.

Last Friday, a search warrant unsealed in Las Vegas points to the site as a resource for thieves. Also used: TMZ.com and Google Maps. The ring would use the sites “to gain intelligence on” celebrity properties and to search for a “mode of entry,” LAPD investigators said.

In honor of the show’s 40th anniversary, New York has proclaimed Nov. 10, “Sesame Street Day,” and will temporarily name a piece of Columbus Ave. at 64th Street in the show’s honor. The set was based on a nearby neighborhood, but is not meant to reflect New York, per se.

Amusingly, the NBC headline says Sesame Street will be on the map, when if fact it will only exist in real life and only temporarily.

Nathaniel Hoffman who writes for the Boise (ID) Weekly details how he (and perhaps a team?) took the ESRI shapefile data from city and with some effort, created a Google Map from it. He had some trouble with projections, but did make a map. He also is a bit confused, suggesting that Google Maps is open source (it’s not).

I applaud his (the team’s?) efforts and hope he can get some help for a smoother methodology!
