my neighborhood in Brussels

a tour around the place I live, Forest/ Vorst (a commune of Brussels)

Starting at my house from 1897 in Flemish style:



going towards the boulevard Guillaume Van Halen with the typical front gardens, main architecture dates from the 1910-30 (a lot of art deco influences):





Typical for the boulevard is the mix in the trees (green/brown)







One of the only towers in the street, an art deco apartment block:







the cutest church in Brussels:



Another Art Deco tower:





Beautiful Expo 58 architecture details around the park:



The park of Forest/Vorst:



of to the boulevard du parc:





a side street:



Social housing in Dutch brick style:







The houses on Avenue Du Parc are classical Brussels architecture from around the century change:













A typical Frites places just before the big roundabout:





Returning home I still made some random pics of things I like in my neighbourhood:







Like these spooky houses on Avenue du Villa:





or this 50's ornament in front of a building:



A well balanced art deco structure:



This modernistic 40-50's house:



Or the feeling you're in Brazil



And we're back in my street:





and we're home

Reminds me a lot of Ghent.
I'm not a great fan of Brussels but your photos make me want to go and visit this particular area.
