Google maps labels Brooklyn street “drug section”

The New York web site Gothamist found that there’s an area of Brooklyn that Google thinks might be a little druggy. And so 8th Street in Bensonhurst is labeled “drug section” on the Google map. Obviously, it’s a mistake. The site contacted Google and the problem is being fixed — or already fixed. However the street view is still labeled this way, as you can see in our photo to the left.

Gothamist contacted Google and a representative told them: ”Thanks for bringing this to our attention. We’re aware of the issue and are working to fix it.”
