Infinite Street View Will Find the Hidden Places You Never Knew Were There
Navigation has never been Street View's high point
There are alternatives though, Infinite Street View is a simple hack, but it's quite effective at enabling you to discover places around a location, places you probably wouldn't find through Google's interface.
There's nothing complicated about the site, created by web developer Noah Veltman, enter a location, a radius and you get a stream of photos. Scroll down and you get more, randomly selected photos of places inside the radius you choose.
... so hot right now
