Very nice!

However, the pictures affirm my impressions that I had back in '02 when I was there, that AKL is a pretty quiet and "empty" city. Am I wrong?

Thank you for the comment. Auckland has a population of about 1.4 million and sprawls over an area second to LA so it would depend a lot on the time of day and where you are in the city, but generally the city itself is very busy and mostly lots of people about.....

Alright.
Convinced already.

But as I said, excellent pictures and a very livable city.

Reminds me of Seattle.

Oceania has some great cities and there should be something in each for everyone but IMO Auckland is easily the best city in Oceania. Although I dont live there I am fortunate to get there a couple of times a year for work. I always enjoy the vibe of downtown Auckland and the waterfront.

These photos bring it all back for me.

You are absolutely right! I've looked at the Seattle photo threads a couple of times and it looks very much like Auckland...especially how both cities are very ''hilly'', and the presence of Asian people in the CBD...

Thank you for the comment

With regards to your question: snow was officially recorded on the ground in Auckland in 1939. On Thursday, July 27 1939 snow lay on the hills around Auckland with dustings to sea level. The snow fell between about 4am and daybreak with accumulations of up to 2inches recorded on top of the Waitakeri Ranges and Eastern/Bombay Hills. Waiheke Island had a light coating as did parts of Northland. This is the only record of snow lying on the ground in the Auckland City area since Meteorological records began back in 1853
