‘Street With a View’ – Google Street View Easter Egg

Google hinted at a new Easter Egg part of Google Maps Street View callled “Street With a View”. From the project description:

On May 3rd 2008, artists Robin Hewlett and Ben Kinsley invited the Google Inc. Street View team and residents of Pittsburgh’s Northside to collaborate on a series of tableaux along Sampsonia Way. Neighbors, and other participants from around the city, staged scenes ranging from a parade and a marathon, to a garage band practice, a seventeenth century sword fight, a heroic rescue and much more…

Street View technicians captured 360-degree photographs of the street with the scenes in action and integrated the images into the Street View mapping platform.

You can view the street on Google Maps or see a couple of photos at the Google Sightseeing blog.
