Great contribution to this thread, thanks a lot!

Some of those Berlin palais are really sad losses. I didn't know the courtyard side of Palais Mosse, what a spectacular sight! Too bad it's gone and can't be reconstructed (at this place) now.

The reconstructed Frauenkirche will turn black at some point, too.

I always find it funny, hearing mostly Americans comment on how Dresden today is kind of eerie, with all the "charred" buildings, because of the bombing. They're actually not charred at all. XD This is how they are supposed to look!

I enjoy viewing these photos, I was born in Berlin and my father was from Dresden.

The type of sandstone used heavily on the most important buildings in Dresden oxidized when exposed to air, and turned black. You can see excellent examples of this phenomenon on the remains of the Dreikonigs Kirche in the neustadt. The new Frauenkirche is not constructed with the same type of stone, so the blackness will not reappear over time.

^ Where did you get this (to my knowledge false) information from?

The new parts are also made of Elbe sandstone, so of course they'll become black over time.

Directly from the people I met with at Dresden architectural council 2 years ago.

U-Bahnhof Stralauer Tor in Berlin, named after a former city gate near its location. This was the original U1 eastern terminus until Warschauer BrŘcke (today Warschauer Stra▀e) was completed.

Naschmarkt, Leipzig. On the left the town hall, the right side was destroyed around 1900 for a new exhibition hall, behind the exchange (in the middle) is a Commie block today:
