Google Street View (part of Google Maps) can optionally now show you user contributed photos of various popular locations grabbed from Google owned Panoramio.

“allows you to explore on a level that our cameras can’t go…”

To view the photos, simply browse to a relatively popular location like Times Square, drag the little man icon on the left on to the map and click on the photos icon to the top right of the screen.
