Let's face it, with all the craziness that's been happnening in the world over the past few months, it looks like most of us are going to be confined to our towns for the forseeable future. And forget traveling overseas anytime soon. What better way to explore the weird and wonderful things this world has to offer than Google Street View

La Isla de las Muñecas (Island of the Dolls) in Mexico, just a normal Island in the Swamp with creepy dolls hanging around.... .... some say that the man who owns that house had a daughter that died, and he went crazy and keeps seeing her so he puts out dolls for her to play with.

Nagoro, Japan. An old lady makes a new doll every time someone in the village dies.

Northeast Baltimore - Any fans of The Wire here? The number of abandoned and crumbling buildings is truly grim - a sober reminder of the swollen American underclass

Feel free to share places you've visited in your own travels that you've found interesting; I'd even love to see places from your own home town or city that may have some interesting history or even some personal signifiance for you.

I never realised the oval office was on the ground floor. Makes it seem weird to sit with your back to those big windows.

Interesting, but this thread could go a lot of different directions. Keep it good/safe and explore the world!

Okay, that's kind of weird but it's only two and... wait, those people in the background don't look quite right.

Oh.

university campuses are interesting to look at, and they also change a lot over time. its fun to go through historical street views and see how places evolve

I can explore the desolation of Camden, New Jersey from the relative safety of my crapper in Florida. Truly wonderful technology.

There used to be a great site that let you scroll through time in Camden and see the decay happen. It was a really impressive site but I can’t find it now.
