Okay, if you type in Augusta on google, they just start showing you pictures of golf courses everywhere. But here are a few of Augusta (these aren't that bad):

According to Wikipedia, Broad Street is the second widest main street in the U.S., while the widest in the world is in Buenos Aires.

Winston-Salem from an airplane.

All photos are from 2004. No Tengion Building or WEV.


I didn't label the Wachovia Center. I think it's obvious where it is.

It's not possible to take a skyline photo of Winston-Salem with all the buildings in it, except by air. I also labeled where the new
$200 million baseball stadium, movie theatre, retail, office and condo development will be built. (ground breaking in April 2007)


There are more buildings along this snake-like stretch, which ends at Hanes Mall, that are not in
this photo. Winston-Salem has two major medical centers with large skylines. I don't have an aerial
showing Forsyth Medical Center's complex and their new tower under construction.

As you can see, the East West Expressway is the best way to enter the city from the west.

...if only all of those where downtown.

Do you have them without the labels? Those are pretty distracting, actually.

Miami Beach - one of the most urban places in the south

Is the aerial of Charlotte (a few postings down) a recent shot? I expected a much denser city, but it looks like an oasis amid parking lots. No offense intended; it's just that one hears so much about the city that seeing all that vacant land around the beautiful skyscrapers is a bit jarring.

Charlotte must be a very sprawling metropolis with a very tight center and lots of outlying edge cities.

I'll tell you this, though. On an overnight train trip New York to Atlanta 30 years ago I woke up in the middle of the night at the Charlotte station and was astounded by the skyline. I can only imagine what it looks like today.

Aerial city photos are my favorites. Unfortunately though for my favorite city of Charlotte, aerial views do not offer the city’s best perspective. Fortunately, that will change for the better within the next five or so years.

Here are some others I found.

It's at least a few years old; several major projects are missing in that photo. I'd say it's from around 2002 or so... which is a long time at the rate this city's changing.

That's a good way to describe it. The city is very, very broad but has a compact little center. This will be even more true in a few years, when both the density and sprawl will have increased by leaps and bounds.

I am going to get crucified by putting atlanta so low, but honestly this is about CBDs not skylines.
Well if you're ranking North American Cities by CBD size and not skyline, then Washington is probably top 5...

Not for nothing but charlotte is SMALL from the air.
I had no idea it was this little.
Omaha NE blows Charlotte away in building density in thier core.
