Lisa Barone of Bruce Clay, Inc. spotted a cool feature on Google Maps. The feature shows you what the popular searches are for places near the location you are in.

For example, a search on NY, NY in Google Maps, returns these popular searches; penn station, port authority, duane reade, bloomingdales, w hotel, madison square garden, moma, car service and soho. Of course, each popular search is hyperlinked, so if you click on madison square garden, you are shown a map for MSG.

Here is a screen shot of the NY, NY Google Map search: Google Maps Popular Searches

It does not seem to work internationally yet. It works in most popular U.S. cities.
