The map coordinates center upon this house, right behind the large white building, in Tyler Heights, West Virginia:



Of course, you may have moved the focal point prior to taking the screenshot - but maybe not.
In any case, I would suggest a reader near there ought to drive down that street and have a looksee. Maybe do a little stalking.

Here is a picture of my house, actually it is a picture of the entire town.

I once found my house on GE with the help of my wife and eldest son (my sense of direction and location is gone). I would have never found it by myself.


Regards,

Grell

I looked up my house... and saw the picture was from over 6 years prior (the car in the driveway was the giveaway).

You guys ever take a look at the street level pictures available for many US urban areas? It looks like they've photographed all of New York City, for example. You can see the photos by checking the Street View box in the GE lower left Layers section.
This is amazing. I guess they drive down every street and take panoramic pictures every few yards or so.
Here's the High School I went to, back in the 70's. Note the aircraft. I think some of them are the same old ones we had back then, although the Marine Corps jet was donated more recently by the military after an alumni crashed and was killed.



EDIT: Btw, each one of those little camera icons is clickable in GE. Each one is a panoramic photo of the area.

Lenny's Clam Bar, Cross Bay Blvd. at 161st Ave, Howard Beach, Queens. 30 years ago, they had stuffed clams that were to die for. They're still there, so they must be doing something right.
