Odviously the east side of the river is the major part of downtown but the area on the west side is also considered part of the downtown. BTW, I loved that aerial of Grand Rapids! It shows how large the downtown is and the density the downtown has.

Yeah that was a definate nice find LM. That last pic with the girl in the pic was the best! Um, just a few Madison pics. The first couple are of Lake Wingra, one of the lesser known Madison lakes. It's the smallest but very beautiful and inviting yet alot less urban

Ortonville, Minnesota







Impressive for a city of less than 2,000 people...

(I took all of these pictures myself with a Lumix DMC-LX2)

That's from the Riverwest neighborhood which is north-northwest of downtown. And you're not alone, alot of people like this view of Milwaukee's downtown over all the rest.

It does seem a bit over-the-top for a reading room, huh? I do wish more modern architecture was about detail, though.

That might be true but I meant what I said in a good way. Hogwarts is a school I'd love to have gone to.
