Google Maps Street View Bug Takes You Through NYC Building

A Google Maps Help thread reports a humorous bug with Google Maps Street Views. The street view seems to take you through a NYC building on 5th avenue and 31st street. FYI, I'll be there this week, so maybe I'll give it a try.

Here is a picture of the buggy street view directions:

As you can see, 5th avenue appears to go right through that building.

I know Google is testing store views but I doubt it works this way.

As a StreetView bug it's kind of funny, but you can do this sort of thing by design at realplaces.com. Here's an example of a business community in Seattle where you can walk up and down the sidewalk but also walk into some of the businesses: http://realplaces.com/place/rusty/Wallingford_CoolestBlock
