Hi everyone,

There is a piece of land for sale in Lakewood, ten minutes outside of
downtown Denver. There are four homes on the property and it is pretty
urban. The address is 1060 N. Balsam St. in Lakewood. If anyone is
interested in living in a small community in Denver, or knows people who
are, this could be a quick way to do it. Call or email anytime, I would
love to help put it together. All my best, Will.

I was working on a personal website for a Willetta and looking for a better
picture of a street sign for ?W Willetta Street? in Phoenix. I tried Google
Maps and ended up ?walking? around Phoenix for an hour. Then I wondered if I
could revisit the place where I was born and lived more many years. I spent
another hour driving around Ponca City, Oklahoma. It was captivating to see
the same houses and parks and trees from my childhood. Changed but still
identifiable. And looking at the map view to see that the great expanse of the
route to grades school was actually only 4 blocks.

I had used Google maps when doing websites for cohousing communities so I
could describe their location more clearly. But the down the street experience
was new.

This might be a good exercise for people considering various neighborhoods and
pieces of land, or communities where you might like to live. There are
distortions in the spatial relationships ? things look larger on film so
streets look wider. If the camera sits you down in a yard it seems you are
stuck. Try to get to a street view in order to walk around. Or drive if you

The cameras are apparently on trucks traveling up and down streets. You can
move forward and back and make 360 degree turns. The sense of place was
conveyed clearly in the places I knew so I?m assuming it is elsewhere too. I
was able to check up on new communities to see if they were built yet ? but I
assume the photos are not terribly new. 

For a while I thought there was a new method of labelling streets ? to print
the names on the pavement the same way crosswalks are painted. After they were
identical in more than one city in different parts of the country, I realized
Google had added them. They are very helpful.

The next time you hear about a community or a piece of land take a look.
