Highland Park, Birmingham (AL)

Hey y'all.

Was in Birmingham, Alabama this weekend and had some time to do a photo tour of one of the city's beautiful neighborhoods, Highland Park. This neighborhood is situated southeast of Downtown Birmingham. It is filled with historic homes and apartment blocks from the turn of the 20th century and contains 5 large, beautiful parks. It is also extremely walkable. Enjoy the photos

Nice pics, citymusic.

It looks clean, neat and quiet, as it should be

Do the leaves there change color these weeks or do they just fall off?

They are just now starting to change colors, and then they will fall off.

Overall, the leaves are still green. There is a hint of color in certain trees and I was trying to capture those to make the pictures look prettier.

It's actually not a suburb (by US definition), it's a neighborhood of Birmingham.
