One of my favourite streets in Warsaw - Ulica Kubusia Puchatka - was included in one of the aerials posted by Urbanista. It really incorporates classic city living (residential with non-residential uses at grade, on street parking, plentiful street trees) and has interesting socialist-realist architecture that offers an almost provincial vibe (reminiscent of smaller French cities or Ulica Andersa on a much smaller scale):



I wish more of the periphery of the Old Town and New Town was built in this style, it would have provided a much nicer transition from the core to the "newer" districts of the city.

Warsaw Uprising 70th Anniversary.

There are around 3340 survivors still living, with about 400 living over seas.

A great picture which shows mainly Wola, where nothing remained after the war

It's not about printing, It's about scaffolding with printing. Jesus Christ
