Good pictures of L.A., although I still think one gets the most vivid impression of the scope of it all at night.

Man, Minneapolis can just not ever look bad. I love it. It's pretty flat there, and that big skyline sure is impressive rising up.

stunned by how beautiful Minneapolis is.....

I love those shots of Houston. I especially love the density shot at 33 seconds. Thanks for posting this.

All the oil industry stuff is neat.

Incidentally, is the above aerial taken from the Williams Tower or from a helicopter? It looks much higher up than the 8 or 900 feet that that building is, but the location looks right from what I recall. I can't tell.

That highway in Houston is massive. One of the things I like about Texas are the highways. Just driving paradise.

With Minneapolis, some of those tree lined neighborhoods look delightful. I like the grid-nature of it as opposed to the more spaghetti like roadways that we see in certain places with similar neighborhoods.

This is a really nice shot of Paris.

Williams Tower would be more to the west of this location. The photo was probably taken from a plane or helicopter.

When I first saw that Minneapolis photo, I initially thought it was Houston as I glanced at it. If the Houston photo had incorporated the large expanse of neighborhoods to the right of that freeway, the comparison would have been pretty amazing (e.g., the tree-lined streets of West University, Southhampton, Southside Place, Braeswood Place, etc.). I'll see if I can find a view of what I'm talking about.

Here's a good one of SF

And a great one of Philadelphia

After NYC and Chicago, SF and Philly are IMO the next biggest, heavy hitting urban areas... after that, nothing else is really close except for maybe LA. Toronto and Montreal, but no other American cities.

...

Speaking of Montreal...
