Google Maps added walking directions

I don’t have a car and use public transportation, bike or walk everywhere — and oftentimes tried to figure out how to get to specific places by the means I have available – without thinking about one way directions, etc.  I really think, that this is an innovation – have to love Google for this!

Here is a screenshot of a “test walk” around Harvard Square – it shows the directions without going around all the one way streets around Harvard Square (A+):
