Find Interesting and Unusual Sights in Google Street View

After Google released Street View for Google Maps, bloggers everywhere started trolling for candid shots of interesting, unusual, or funny sights that were unwittingly recorded for posterity. Like this apparent robbery in progress:

Several roundup posts have collected together some of the best locations, but otherwise, it's a little like looking for a needle in a haystack to find an actually interesting scene in Google Maps. This is where Streetviewr comes in.

lets anyone post a link and a description of a location in Google Maps where something noteworthy was photographed. Right now, you'll have to depend on the captions to decide whether a submission is worth a look since preview images aren't available, but that's about the only downside. It's a sweet and simple site that only seeks to do one thing really well.
