When I was a kid I went to Richmond and it seemed big for a city its size in terms of the downtown. Dense more than tall in terms of skyscrapers which makes it seem as if the buildings arent as tall as most cities. That said, Richmond has a dense skyline especially in person. The downtown when I was a kid was alot more busy with people shopping and working. Urban flight has created the problem in most urban cities like Richmond that thrived in the early century until the 1970's/1980's!

As a kid Richmond had crime problems when I visited family there but, its worse now. Most the people there are good people though but, gangs are getting worse in all of the state of Virginia like Norfolk/Va Beach were I live. Back to Richmond, urban flight and crime has caused the empty feel but, thats what the eye sees. Truth is Richmond is a very important U.S city. Most dont know it because theres no pro team etc.. located in Virginia but, Richmond is the number 6th ranked U.S city for Fortune 500 companies having a total of nine headquartered in Richmond and 13 total with offices in Richmond as well. Richmond also has 1 of the federal reserve banks located in the city among its judicial importance in the court systems as well. More to this city than even I knew until a year ago and I was proud a Virginia city was this important in Government!

I give 8, nice, tidy skyline, but nothing special - 6 for skyline, +2 for being capital of Confederacy

Actually the crime in Richmond is the lowest it's been in three decades (recorded and true, btw), and the population has actually grown for the first time in decades, to 203,000 according to the 2008 census report. Plus I went to Richmond about 2 months ago, and I would like to know where it seemed dead. As I walked along the streets in the capitol district, people were everywhere, especially in the business district. Then the VCU area alone has tons of people walking around.

Richmond is a very very boring city.. if it wasn't for VCU the downtown area would be dead. The suburbs of Richmond are really spread out.. the city fits anybody that has a family and just wants to take it slow otherwise not much there.. i lived there for a year.

Richmond needs more pictures with better angles. I have no knowledge of how to add pictures nor do I own a camera. Anyone viewing this in Richmond,Va who knows how to and has a camera add better pictures from different angles here!!! L.G.N.M
