That idea is just garbage. Do you actually think that just because something was done long ago that it's outdated? What makes you think that changes in an area require it to be relocated to another region? I'm sure if you think about it you can see the absurdity in this (il)logic.

No, where is your logic to apply my specific statement to a general one.

garbage? Have you been to either of those cities? Have you lived there?

If you have, then you would see the absurdity of your statement. At least 3 times, there have been requests to stay on topic. I tried to respect that, but you all cant' stop trying to push something that is ridiculous if you have been to either city.

I personally believe The south should end at Richmond. Culturally and Geographically. When looking at a map, DC and Baltimore are geographically not in the south. THey are mid-atlantic. . With that being said, I wouldn't include them in the south. Now, about south Florida being in the south. YES, THAT IS THE SOUTH. Different regions have different cultures. You don't exclude a city from a region because it's culture is different. Miami is as south as it gets. Now can we get back on topic?

anybody, particularly in richmond history, have photos of the old cemeteries in richmond? perhaps, it seems morbid, but i love to spend time looking at names, dates, and particularly the monuments in cemeteries. there is a great book i bought at barnes and nobel several years back, and it is dedicated to monuments in cemeteries in america. can't remember the author off the top of my head, but it is filled w/ interesting facts and photos. it seems richmond would be a city w/ some wonderful cemeteries. btw, i have, since my last post, reviewed wiki (not my favorite source for info, but convenient), and i don't think that those pictures on wiki do justice to richmond. i did enjoy reading and researching the roman catholic cathedral and st. john's. i am a former roman, but i became an episcopalian 22 years ago. i love the patrick henry story about st. john's.

Please...don't be a martyr about this. You're making assertions that have no basis in reality, so you must expect a response. Stop making them and there will be no responses.

Stop hijacking this thread with southeast City Aerials.

Seriously, though, I never realized how compact Tampa CBD was and how comparatively few its surface parking lots.

If you feel compelled to respond, at least read the post of which you are responding. I don't know why you feel compelled to continue, my comments are based on reality. I'm not making assertions. Your posts speak for themself. Drop the martyr nonsense.

Yeah and they seem relegated to the fringes of the CBD as well.

The most famous cemetery in Richmond is Hollywood. Presidents John Tyler and James Monroe are buried here, so is Jefferson Davis, JEB Stuart and 10's of thousands of Confederate dead.

Shockoe Hill Cemetery (oldest in town) first Chief Justice of US Supreme Court, John Marshall, is buried here. So is Arthur Ashe.

Hebrew Cemetery

St John's Church has a nice compact cemetery too. Aside from Poe's mother, not sure who is buried there.

I'll take care of question #2

Thanks for the response kc, I appreciate the interest. I may be partial, but RVA is definitely a cool city. I love the big city feel/atmosphere while consecutively feeling a small, hometown feel.
Since spencer answered the cemetery question, I'll shoot for some more aerials. I'm trying to find new ones that I have not previously posted, but that is becoming increasingly difficult lol.

Here's a cool one showing the density of the "original" RVA skyline, located around the MCV campus near Church Hill/Shockoe Bottom:

And another:

I like the cosmopolitan feel to this photo:

This last photo I hate. It makes RVA look so boring/ugly, when it truly is not. Second, I have used this previously, so I apologize....but it shows most of the skyline, so I use it. It leaves off a few buildings to the left and the Southern States building/others south of the river. However, it does an adequate job lol.


Hope this helps!

I love Richmond's density and exquisite historical layers. All that's missing IMHO are a couple or three signature towers to really set the whole thing off. Richmond can and deserves to be Virginia's big flagship skyline.

Really nice perspective of Tampa! So many shots of Tampa's skyline are those swampy, low-lying ones that just show the big boys but neglect all the layers down below. And I don't see parking lots, I see opportunity!

There are a lot more than that photo wants to show, the CBD is riddled with surface lots and more keep being built.

Google maps shows the real truth. I'd say half the land area of the CBD is parking lots.

Somebody found this on the Google website. That's Coral Gables in the foreground, and this angle with South Beach in it makes the Brickell area look even more dense. This isn't even the entire Miami skyline and more is coming in this decade.
