Last week Canadian-based search engine GenieKnows.com rolled out a local search beta (currently only available in the US). It offers dynamic maps, neighborhood/nearby business search and a number of sort/refine features, including by distance. Here is a full explanation of the various features.
From my basic searching and review of the site, it seems to me unremarkable. Local is now a very crowded space and the table stakes keep getting raised. For loyal GenieKnows users this will be a welcome addition to its capabilities. However, a Google Maps, Yahoo Local, SuperPages or Citysearch user will be left wishing for more content and functionality.
