A new feature on Google Maps called Street View is raising concerns about privacy, reports CNBC's Melissa Francis.
Street View provides a 360-degree, street level view of sites from New York's Radio City Music Hall to the Las Vegas strip, along with just about any other address in those and three major cities, Francis said.
While the satellite feature on Google Maps provides users with a birds-eye view of roof tops, Street View users can see the color of a front door on a New York apartment building. And while slightly grainy, you can even zoom up to a window.
Google took the pictures using cameras in vans, Francis reports. And they've apparently caught people in compromising positions, such as a man breaking into a building and another strolling out of a strip club.
