Google Maps 8-bit quest

My house in 8-bit
No monsters or dragons here

Quick. Go to Google Maps and look up an address then click Quest in the top right-hand corner.

Try looking up Googleplex. Or The White House. (you may need to zoom in or out to see things)

An explanation is on the Google Maps Blog

Let me know if you found any other cool things at other addresses.

Update: Danny Goodwin over at Search Engine Watch has screen shots of many of the landmarks found on the 8-bit maps.
