AskCity Is Local Search with Snapshots, Drawing Tools, and More

Ask joins Yahoo and Google in local search with AskCity, making it easy to find events, businesses, and movies where you live. Unlike its competitors, AskCity offers drawing and annotation tools along with the standard directions and aerial (satellite) view. You can add text labels, box an area, and send a permalink of your customized map to your friends. Another neat feature is a scrolling snapshots bar where you can store snapshots of maps as you browse through AskCity.If you're looking for restaurants, AskCity helpfully integrates CitySearch with its comprehensive database of restaurant information and reviews along with sample menus from MenuPages. You can also narrow by cuisine or neighborhood.

Overall, AskCity is a nice addition to the array of local search options now available. It's easy to use and has loads of features that make it easy to find what you're looking for and share what you've found.
