Anyhow, the Google map of my town has, at the least, my street wrong (as does the official map the city hands out, go figure)---it shows Spear St. as continuous, when in fact there's a "lower" Spear that runs E/W for 2 or 3 blocks from the river, then stops at a rather large and steep hill. "Upper" Spear, where I live, is on top of that hill (the tony area of town, I might add), runs for two long blocks with dead-ends at both ends. It's one of those places that "you can't get there from here".
