There are 117 churches in the Square Mile that is one of the financial districts of London, simultaneously the oldest and newest part of the city (nearly 60 of the churches are 350 years old). This historic centre was devastated during the war, but much survives - can you spot them?

I just heard over from Wired NY that the Glad Tidings Tabernacle Church, near MSG, is being demolished for a hotel.

Historic preservation in NYC is a total joke.

At that angle, of course you can't see the streets...
I think NYC is more dense than London.

Vertically, yes. However London streets are much narrower.

^actually that area pictured counts 400,000 people per sq. mile by day, 4000 by night. Basically London is relatively evenly populated residentially (lightly even), however the daytime density of the centre is phenomenal. People come to the centre to shop, eat, drink and work, and congregate into stifling crowds, well into the night too with some entertainment districts seeing 1 million pass through in a night. Like I said its far a different story in residential terms, the astronomical rents makes most buildings office/retail, even if they're only a 2 storey 200 year old house.

Basically theres a huge amount of commuting, and the streetplan is a medieval mess.

A better pic, you can only really see the density from high. There isnt a single residential building in the entire picture:


^back to the thread, hidden in all that are 120 churches. You can see a few of the tallest steeples poking out.

pic of the same area by plane, and the churches (the 3 concrete sister towers are the only major residential developments in The City, you pay $3 million for the privilege of a small flat in those monsters):
