So many amazing photos on this page alone. Tucumán looks interesting. I hadn't heard about that place before.

it´s the fifth or seixth largest argie city, after Buenos Aires, Cordoba, Rosario and Mendoza. Not sure if it´s larger or smaller than La Plata, however.


I don´t think it has any important football club (in fact, I think only Buenos Aires and metro plus Rosario have important football clubs in Argentina)

That school in Philly is quite a barrier. I took a long walk on a visit a year ago. It felt like 1/3 of a mile wide where you just couldn't get through. Then you hit the other side and it's fairly (and sometimes very) slummy, at least until the university hospital where I turned back to center city. Wild guess...the barrier is one reason the north is less desirable? Oddly the old prison was in a nice area.

Drones are really becoming hot toys. Here's an aerial video over (or rather through) Manhattan.

I wish I could have seen London before all the highrises got built--incredible urban fabric (the effects of the Blitz notwithstanding).

Landcast - Seattle Aeial Photography

Visit the link for many and more aerial views of Seattle, these are pretty recent pictures:

http://www.landcast.com/seattle-aerial-photography









These next 3 pics show how far South Lake Union has come in the last 10 years, and how much more potential it still has, many cranes and more coming (First of Amazon's 3 new massive towers in the middle of the 2nd pic):








Different angle of SLU, with the University District in the distance:


Downtown close up:


Pioneer Square, the oldest part of DT Seattle, CenturyLink Field to the right:


And one last one looking north along the waterfront, the Viaduct will be torn down in 2 short years, as long as they get the tunnel boring machine running again :/

Holy crap! Seattle is unrecognizable for me. I was last there in 1996.

Look at all that high and mid rise residential. And almost completely devoid of surface parking!

I am wishing the same thing. Did Westminster and environs not get targeted at all? Or was it just the first to get rebuilt? It would seem that it would be prudent, in the Nazi perspective, to go after the center of GB government I'd think.

That 1928 picture has me in awe.
