Further St. Paul Weirdness

The St. Paul suburb of North Oaks doesn't have public roads. They're all privately owned. One consequence is that the city requested that Google Maps remove all street-view imagery, on the theory that it was obtained by trespassing. What is it about St. Paul that brings out the crazy? ;) See also: intersection of 7th street and 5th street. (And 6th street. And 8th street.)

Discovered via "Blurred Out: 51 Things You Aren't Allowed to See on Google Maps", although the most mind-boggling case listed is Singapore:
[The Singapore Land Authority] alleged that the satellite images on Google Earth are direct copies of real geographic features in Singapore and infringe upon the organization's copyrights.
