And I suppose we'll lose a whole lot more with Midtown Rail construction.

At some level, a tree is a tree. But I'm thinking most of what was along the Greenway were mostly scrub trees.

Is there a thing that exists where you can overlay lots of 3D shapes into Google Maps?

If and when they rebuild 29th and build the Greenway rail line you will see a large number of trees that will go away.

I noticed that there are some August 2014 street views available along I-94 east of downtown Minneapolis and around the metro (such as Hwy 13 in Prior Lake), and I assume more locations will be uploaded in the near future.

Saw a streetview car along Chicago by the Viking Stadium site last week. Area hasn't seen an update since 2011.

September 2014 Streetview has been uploaded for various parts of the city. (I've seen examples in North Loop and Richfield, so they certainly got around)

Can't access the historic imagery anymore though! I'm crossing my fingers that this is just a blip.

Anyone else find it annoying in (classic) Google Maps that many yellow streets/roads seem to have lost that designation? Now there are many places where it's a sea of white roads with only line thickness to differentiate importance.

Still able to access historic imagery here, even with Sept 2014 imagery.

Oddly enough, some spots defaulted to Oct 2013 and I was able to move it forward to Sept 2014 by opening up the historical timeline.

^I had that same issue on Washington Ave N. It defaulted to 2013 in spots, but I could access 2014 via the timeline. That could just be temporary until more of the 2014 data is uploaded. I'm currently trying to find myself driving in Richfield...somewhere on 68th I was right behind the Google car. That would make it my third appearance, if you count my ridiculous non-face-blurred debut on Bing Maps this summer.

Looks like Google Earth updated their imagery of downtown/elsewhere.

There is also a Vikings game at TCF happening in the shot. Kinda cool.

Wow!! I love this! You can see the patio on Nic on Fifth and the new hotel and Uptown changes! It puts in perspective how much has happened in the past year

Transit convergence at the game too: https://www.google.com/maps/place/TCF+B ... d4035fbf6b

How do you know it's Oct. 12 vs. Sept. 28?

It's Oct 12th according to the "downloaded version" of Google Earth. It is time stamped on the bottom. It actually says Oct. 11th which was a Saturday. Don't know why it would be one day off.

Downtown St Paul looks real nice with CHS field.
