You can find anything on Google Maps (okay, not anything ). But you might not be able to find the town of North Oaks, Minnesota. The St. Paul suburb of 4,500 is in a unique situation -- its streets are all privately owned by the residents.
"It's not the hoity-toity folks trying to figure out how to keep the world away," said Mayor Thomas Watson. "They really didn't have any authorization to go on private property."
The town still shows up on the map, but Google has disabled the streetview option.
