Wow great thread and pics, and I enjoyed your commentary. I've been to Vancouver once and was so impressed with how lively and well designed the downtown area was. I think a lot of NA cities can look to Vancouver for inspiration when it comes to livability and great urban design

Wow, thanks Jan, I have an even greater appreciation of Vancouver now, and you're commentary was great. Thats definately my kind of city - combining tall buildings and high density but not sacrificing attractive streetscapes, stunning scenery, lots of greenery and fantastic urban character. A lot of cities in the world could take note. I would love to visit Vancouver one day, but definately during summer (knowing a guy who spent last winter on the ski fields nearby )

Great skyline and high-rises. It's hard to imagine from the photos that VanCity has less than 2 million people.
