Google Maps Allows You to Search Your Neighborhood

David Tussey from Google Maps announced that you can now do neighborhood searches at Google Maps.

So if you are on the upper west side of Manhattan and you want bagels you can find them over here. But yes, if you do travel over to the dark side of the upper east side of Manhattan and you want bagels from there, you can find them here. Also, if you are in the gramercy park area of Manhattan, near Baruch College (where I went), and you need a bagel, that works also over here.

Greg Sterling adds; Real Estate sites HomeGain and Trulia offer this capability and so do local search sites Yelp and Ask City. Yahoo recently introduced color-coded neighborhood maps (in SF and NY) among other changes and Maps upgrades.

Gramercy Park Bagels searches at Ask City isn't too shabby.

Yea, but Google gets the forum buzz for it.
