How would one go about dropping a marker at a certain lat/long in the new Google Maps?

Visiting https://www.google.com/maps/@37.7,-122.4,16z only centers the map at those coordinates but does not drop a marker.

  • This is a hack that only kind of works. If you for example zoom in till you get the street view, then out again, the marker disappears. Likewise if you navitage away (with the browser to another web page) then back, the marker isn't there (as google has added junk to the url). Still, much better than nothing!
