Since April 1st fell on a Sunday, perhaps you weren't near a computer to experience this Google Map prank.  Google announced a new mode that would allow owners of the original Nintendo Entertainment System to access their map feature with a special Google Maps cartridge called “Google Maps 8-Bit"  Take a look of what some of the local landmarks would look like in the land of Mario. 

Leave it to Google to play April Fool's Day jokes on the public.  We thought it would be interesting to show you a couple of landmarks in the Capital Region as it would look using the Nintendo Entertainment System.

Recognize the location of the above photo of the Empire State Plaza with the Egg?

Can you guess the location of the above photo.  You probably have shopped there in the past and then afterwards chowed down some cheesecake.

Try it out for yourself  http://goo.gl/i4onu
