New 3D Cities in Google Earth: Pittsburgh, Seattle

GEB reader Chuck Alcorn wrote earlier today to let me know Pittsburgh, PA is now available as a 3D city in Google Earth.

Pittsburgh 3D Buildings in Google Earth

After confirming this was true, I did some looking around, and I found at least one other new city – Seattle, WA:

Also, I forgot to mention after the October big 3D city update, that Google also added downtown Miami after they earlier added Miami Beach. The current list I have for other cities where Google has a substantial portion of the city modeled in 3D includes: US: Los Angeles, San Diego, Chicago, Nashville, Philadelphia, San Diego, Minneapolis, Kansas City, St. Petersburg, Jacksonville, Clearwater, Miami, and Miami Beach, San Francisco, Baltimore, Raleigh, Atlanta, Charlotte, Boston, Orlando, Austin, St. Louis, Oakland, Dallas, Tampa, Memphis, and Phoenix. Also, Zurich, Munich and Hamburg in Europe
If you find any other cities where the majority of the city has been rendered in 3D, please leave a comment here.
