Google adds neighbourhood search to Google Maps

Posted on Saturday, May 26 2007 @ 23:11:35 CEST by

Google added a new feature to Google Maps last week which allows users to search by neighborhood name in 50 U.S. cities.
A list of the supported cities is not available as of yet, but initial tests have shown that the neighborhood search works in at least New York, Chicago, Cincinnati, and San Francisco.

"Neighborhoods tend to be somewhat informally defined but well recognized in certain cities," writes Google Maps product manager David Tussey. Offering a search that knows where neighborhoods are generally located can prove helpful to residents who live by those informal descriptions.

Searching by neighborhoods is as simple as performing any other Google Maps search. Some of the examples provided by Tussey include "bagels upper east side new york" and "restaurants, over the rhine, cincinnati." My own searches for Chicago have proven to work pretty well, such as "bars andersonville chicago," "clubs ukrainian village chicago," and "veterinarians lakeview chicago."
