I passed by those grand old dames every day, twice a day, for almost 6 years. Very cool buildings. Montreal's answer to the Dakota in NYC (famous for many reasons, including being where John Lennon was murdered).

Funny that you refered to that building, which is also famous for being the Rosemary’s Baby location. I have a friend who just moved to a same era appartement buildings in Westmount and it looks exactly like the Dakota, complete with manuel wooden elevators from the 20´s. It’s amazing!

Nice pictures. That view of the Maritime Centre is a good example of the kind of street-level view you often get of the building, which I think is a bit nicer than the appearance in the skyline.

That stretch of little buildings along Spring Garden Road is odd. The blue vinyl siding one looks like it was cut in half at some point. The Victorian house has been vacant for decades.

That view past Province House and onto Queen's Marque is interesting but it's maybe the most egregious gap in the urban fabric around there right now, and its redevelopment will dramatically change the feel of the area much like Queen's Marque.

I'd be curious to see examples of Halifax's "punching above its weight" 1850s building stock, if anyone has some handy

A bit of it is is in those pictures even if not necessarily obvious.

I have a few pictures (taken by me or from Google Streetview). Some of these are just partly 1850's or earlier.



My nomination for worst-developed heritage streetscape in Canada (not all of it but this side):






1860's (although the one in the background with the copper cornice is an 1860 base with top 3 floors added around 1910 or so; still an interesting building.)



Not exhaustive and missing some standouts although I think I got the nicest blocks. There are quite a few older ones scattered around, sometimes in the middle of blocks of later Victorian or newer buildings. I did not include residential stuff.

The highly anticipated Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 has now been out for a month and I have been really enjoying flying above our beautiful city.

Taking off from YVR is always a treat.



Heading toward Downtown.





Downtown looks always awesome from the air.





Beautiful Stanley Park.



North Shore Mountains looks fantastic and backmountains are exciting to explore.



I guess the Coal Harbour airport cannot facilitate A320 landing.



Downtown looks great in the game but the map data used is around 5 years old, meaning there are many buildings missing.





Unfortunately only the Vancouver proper is modeled using photogrammetry data. Areas more to the east such as Burnaby and Metrotown are created by the AI algorithm which doesn't yield quite as good or correct results. It still looks fine from high above.





The game engine doesn't even support DX12 or ray tracing, yet, but dusk and dawn look absolutely amazing.











Game's weather engine can generate some really realistic clouds and real-world weather makes flying exciting.





Above nighttime Shaughnessy.

Yeah,map data in this game is based off Being Maps which is five-ish years old around the world. Slightly shame but the game looks amazing regardless.

My first Dartmouth pic.

The first (smallest I think) of seven sexy multi-use bridges assembled in Darmouth (likely off to the paint shop). Will be floating to the Lower Don Lands in The Six, in late October or so. Thanks Dartmouth.

I usually don't comment much. But that last picture is one of the most interesting I've seen from Trois-Rivières. Merci de l'avoir partagée!
