Zoom in and notice that the street seems to be "melting" into a trench. Keep zooming in until you drop into "Street View", into the trench.
If you move forward, the view jumps up and down as it crosses the pipes (or pillers).
Bing maps does not do this. it shows it as Railroad or commuter train tracks.
It looks like you would drop straight down if you were to take the side street across the trench. Wouldn't want to have to drive across that street.
It's a below-ground set of 3 train tracks, like a subway.
I couldn't get Bing to accept coordinates but was successful using the address of:
2095 East Florence Avenue, Huntington Park, California
Incredibly interesting. Wonder what a good explanation for this would be.
Yes this is a wierd thing.
did you stumble on it?
Some additional interesting spots
hmmmm that's right near me.....i can tell just by looking at the coordinates....little bit west of me....little bit north...wow better check this out so i know to detour that spot
o btw, thjats actually Metrolink and/or Amtrack tracks that its melting into
That is way cool.
Yes, I was looking for the BofA branch at 2100 E. Florence Avenue, Walnut Park CA 90255
It's right next to the tracks.
Pan north, up the tracks, to the train yard, and then check out some of the bridges to the East. They all "Sag".
I think Google was trying to get 3D views or something and it failed.
That is really cool.
It looks normal in the regular Google Maps. Will look at it in Google Earth
