San Fernando Valley

Google Maps doesn't get Van Nuys *

Google map fragment
A few readers have sent this to me. (Thanks.) Google Maps has the Van Nuys community name just right, but the airport, boulevard and golf course are all reduced to Van NY. Same with Van Nuys-Sherman Oaks Park, just off the fragment here. Maybe the Google computer thinks it's Van, New York? Link

* Monday night update: Google says it will be fixed, possibly by Wednesday.
