Andrewville's San Antonio Photos

I WILL BE ADDING PICTURES SO LOOK AT EACH PAGE



The downtown skyline. Very small for a city of it's size but the vibrancy of downtown makes up for buildings


The building under construction in the background is The Grand Hyatt.


Looking at part of downtown with the Tower of Americas, U/C Grand Hyatt and the Mariott Hotel.


Looking down Houston Street


The Alamo and the Emily Morgan Hotel


The Hippolito Garcia Courthouse


One of the beautiful street signs


The now defunct Lone Star Beer Brewery


The "Barrio." Barrio is the Spanish word for "hood". Not the richest side of town.


A house in the Barrio


Mexican Imports!


Snacks from Mexico


Blankets for sale


Mexican Dresses


Cowboy Hats for Everyone!


The famous River Walk - Paseo del Rio in Spanish. Restaurants and clubs line the river.


Another shot of the River Walk


Riverwalk restaurant umbrellas


Stairway to the River Walk which is one-story below street level. Landry's Seafood.


SBC Phone


Burrito Restaurant. Unfortunately Closed Down.


The Tower of Americas. Built for the Hemisfair (World Fair) of 1968.


Aztec looking statue and the Tower


A view of downtown San Antonio from the tower


A part of downtown in detail


Road leading out of downtown


The San Antonio Institute of Mexico


Note: San Antonio is among the top 10 fattest cities in the United States


The San Antonio Municipal Auditorium


The only building of significant height under construction downtown - The Grand Hyatt


Market Square


Mission Concepcion


Inside Mission Concepcion


Mission Espada


Mission San Juan


Tiendita 1 (A religious store)


Tiendita 2 (Grocery/Home Goods shop)


La Villita


I noticed this religious figurine embedded in a wall in La Villita

Thank you! This is probably my first picture thread since joining SSC. I've seen so many other people's picture threads and thought I should finally contribute something myself.

Surprisingly no. When you go down around the river, it always seems cooler than street level. Better efforts to keep the water sanitary have also helped keep the mosquito population down.
