The Longest Street View in the World

Google has released Street View for New Orleans and Baton Rouge (including a really wide swath of southeast Louisiana – I wouldn’t have thought my sister’s place or my ex-inlaws’ place would be there), and the company and the state are touting this release as a positive infotool in post-Katrina Louisiana.

OK, fair enough. And Street View in New Orleans does offer up a lot of exploration opportunities. I couldn’t help but notice, though, that among the routes documented for posterity is the Lake Pontchartrain Causeway. Yep, all 24 miles of the trip across the lake are documented in full 360-degree wonderfulness. In fact, Google shot the Causeway in both directions – meaning there’s about 47 miles of panoramic wonderfulness to enjoy.

I know I don’t have the patience to click my way across the Causeway (and certainly not across and back), so if there are Street View gems to be found there, somebody else will have to discover them.
