Top 10 Creepy Google Maps Coordinates
Google Maps is a huge help for everyone because it is a better representation of a classic map. It gives us a 360-view of the area, landmarks, and nearby establishments. If you are bored, you can also take a ‘stroll’ using Google Maps. However, there are several creepy things that you may find in different parts of the world. Below is the list of top 10 creepy Google Maps coordinate that you should check out.

It turns out that there is a creepy-looking statue in the apartment. It looked like a tall, corpse-like statue with messy hair and white, large eyes. Some say that it is just a tiki statue but why does Google need to blur the area out in the Maps?

1. “Portal to Hell” in New Baltimore, New York
If you watched or played “Silent Hill”, you will get the shock of your life when you see the images of this area in Google street view.
