BuzzFeed says hat Richmond has the third best public art piece in the world...it is a pretty great mural.

Personally I think the Detroit piece should rank higher. Funny stuff!

ROA, holding down the number 1 spot on this list, did an amazing piece in Richmond last year.

Nice additions. You must have went out this past weekend. Can't wait to see what the new buildings popping up will look like when finished.

Ahh, I see. The photo of the new development across from Cha Cha's Cantina and Society fooled me in to thinking it was recent. Any idea of what it's going to be?

Great photos! I've only seen pictures of Richmond, but it looks amazing from what I've seen.

Well my girlfriend and I haven't been there, she lives in Virginia but has never gone to Richmond and we both would just like to go see Virginia's capital. We're going to Annapolis this Sunday (her first time, but I've been there multiple times).

We just plan on sight-seeing in Richmond then finding a restaurant for dinner, don't know much about the main attractions in Richmond (but now looking into some areas CNB30 recommended). We haven't chosen a date yet but probably sometime this month.

I'm sure she'll love Annapolis. It is such a charming city.

Going to Richmond on Sunday, can't wait it's going to be a lot of fun. Going to do some photography there, will show some photos after post-production.

Awesome! It should be a great day for it.
Check out the river if you get the chance (Belle Island is a short walk from the CBD).

Have fun.

I'm working in downtown Norfolk this week. It is looking really nice down here!!! Go see the duck in Ghent (mostly for the trip to Ghent. It is a beautiful neighborhood adjacent to downtown).

There will be a food festival in the middle of Broad Street (main drag) in the arts district in Sunday (Richmond). It may make getting around a hassle but it makes for good people watching too. You're gonna want to move to Virginia. Politics more to your liking but not so far out as to assault your Maryland sensibilities. Norfolk in particular is looking really livable these days.
