They got most of our neighbors, but no names for our house, which is nice.

We've been here a long time, maybe no recent house purchase to link us to the address, but we're in the phone book. Couldn't be too hard to find the info.

Half the people were wrong and our address is in some random backyard. But we can look up property owners online at our county assessor.

A couple of things -either my neighbor changed wives or we've been calling her the wrong name for several years. A neighbor who died about 2 years ago is still listed even though the house sold immediately.
Also, my house is not worthy of a street view, but that's ok I know what it looks like.

Site has a lot of correct info for my neighborhood but also appears to be about 3 years behind as far as sales and new neighbors are concerned.
Wherever you go, there you are.

I checked my az address - I'm not there. I'm at the Illinois address, and it lists my neighbors, but nobody has moved for several years until this month. I have one client that performs the "google" mapping. Needless to say that these applications are becoming far more accurate. Luckily the real good stuff is not released to the public.

Thanks. I successfully monkey wrenched the data on my address.

I have shared this link with several folks.

Not sure, if ever, i will stop being flabbergasted about what is on the WWW.
Our neighbors' names are almost all correct. The house shown as ours is located on street behind us.

Small solace.

That's fascinating. Our information is "missing" and most of our neighbors' information is wrong, but the satellite view is worthy of printing & framing.

That's OK, we took care of it for you!
Just kidding. As far as you can tell.

Now I'm going to have to put in all the addresses I've lived at over the years, and see what comes up next...

The book written on, "The Military Guide to Financial Independence and Retirement", on sale now! For more info see "About Me" in my profile.
I don't spend much time here anymore, so please send me a PM. Thanks.

Interesting stuff. Our address isn't in any of the search engines that we've found but looked at some nearby. Crazy amount of information available!

I once saw a video where two guys were zooming Google Street View and zoomed through their door, around a couple of corners and had a live shot of themselves looking at the computer. I can't find it now, though. It was funny.

This one isn't quite as good:
