Finding NZ's gay bars on Google's Street View

Tue 2 Dec 2008 In: Community View at Wayback View at NDHA

Google's new Street View guide to NZ was launched today. We wondered how their photographers made our favourite gay community drinking hotspots look… This shot of the corner of Auckland K' Road and Pitt Street must have been taken on a cloudy and windy day sometime in the last few months – the Naval and Family's rainbow flag stands proudly erect: Sadly, we can't see Family nightclub, the entrance to NV, Rainbow Youth or even Urge bar, as those sections of K' Road aren't photographed by Google yet. Kamo looks great though: On Ponsonby Road, the camp 'n colourful Dorothy's Sister was very easy to find: And before we leave Auckland, here is Verity we invite you to show us the places that mean something to you on Google Maps via's Forum, linked below.     Matt Akersten - 2nd December 2008
