Norfolk



A selection of pictures I took while in downtown Norfolk, Va on Thursday, August 20th. The city is going through a growth spurt with loads of construction going on. We are halfway finished with the Light Rail, there are some pictures of construction further down the page. The city will also see the completion of a 22 floor tower and several mid rise developments this year and the next. A 26 floor Hotel and conference center is set to groundbreak sometime this fall. Note top picture is not mine, i wanted an overview of the skyline.

^ This old 'Fisherman' saw me taking pictures so he naturally called me over to take a picture of him. His name is Eugene and is from Hampton. He was a little strange as he was standing by waterside drive trying to catch a bus to Virgina Beach yelling ON NO I MISSED MY BUS every time one went by, we wern't near a bus stop.. He bragged to me about his hazle eyes. ^

WOW! Looks like a great town. I wish we could get light rail in Columbus, Cleveland, and Cincy!
