Google today announced the addition of six new cities to Google Maps Streetview. The cities are Chicago, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Portland and Tucson. The images in Phoenix, Tucson and parts of Chicago are all in high resolution.

I think they may also have covered Springfield. At least that's what this streetview of a Kwik-E-Mart suggests.

Here are some of our early finds. We will of course be adding some of these streetviews to our Streetview Gallery.
