Excellent job george!!! I'm very happy that there is another one that took it to the streets and started taking pics of this city like that. It is time for the publics of this forum to know that Athens has a modern distict called Maroussi (I had presented a thread in Euroscrapers in 2003 but now it's gone).

Also for the Turkish forumers visiting this thread:

This is the closest thing you may find to Levent, Maslak and Buyukdere Avenue in Athens.

Also for the benefit of informing all foreign visitors here: Kifissias Avenue is a long 20km Avenue that connects Central Athens to the Northern suburbs. It passes within breathing distance from the main Athens Olympic Sports Centre and cuts through a number of high class suburbs like Chalandri, Psychiko and especially, Maroussi, when the Main Olympic Sports centre (and the Olympic stadium is located.

Although I am busy this weekend, I have some daytime pics on stock to add to this beautiful collection by George. So:

-Pictures taken from the sides of the footbridge close to the "Hygeia" Hospital. In the first picture, the blue bui8lding in the foreground is the Athens Olympic Committee Head Offices




-View from the same spot depicting the main Press and Exhibition Halls used in the Olympics (very limited view though as these buildings occupied some 150,000 sq. metres in total




-View of the typical style of the lowrises in Kifissias Avenue




-Athens fourth tallest, and second tallest Office tower, the Atrina Centre as seen from Kifissias Avenue

Very nice work George!

Considering that it's always hard to take night shots and it's your first experiences with the new cam!
