if I can make it there...

Google Earth beta - New York area
Are you planning on visiting the Big Apple sometime in the near future?
If so gimme a holla dog cuz I've just landed my ass here this morning. Yo!
I went to see what these guys had to offer. 10 MB and a few minutes later I was already buckling my seat belt and preparing to land at JFK.
Here is an aerial photo taken somewhere over Ellis Island just seconds before landing (courtesy of Google Earth beta :).
Update: Well it seems that you'll have to wait some time if you want to make the trip. Following the download link won't get you anywhere but to a nice and polite "we're sorry we can't offer you a download right now" message. That same message sounded a bit more acid like two hours ago when it said something about "frustrated planet surfers". I think that somebody is feeling playfull at Google...
