between Waterfront Park and Downtown

















view to the other side; USS Yorktown/Patriots Point



from a park looking towards downtown



The Battery - THE gentrified hood in Charleston, with a great river/bay view





touristy indeed...





mid-rise undergoing rennovation





in from the battery...









nice pond/park

























a lot of these pics were taken just stumbling around, when i came across the College of Charleston's campus, and then i found myself downtown, which i wanted to do later, so i stumbled back out to the hoods. some are CoC buildings, most aren't, but anyway...

who's up for a panty raid?







i needed a pit stop so i went into CoC's library, and took some pics from it































































now for the bridges; the two old, scary to some steel bridges over the Cooper river to the suburb of Mt. Pleasent are being replaced by the new Ravanel bridge, almost finished. it'll be sad to see the old bridges gone, they were fun to drive over





guess which one's the new one?











Charleston "skyline" from the bridge



and finally, a beach, Folly Beach. one secretary at school describes it as "how beach towns in Florida used to be." Folly's a pretty nice beach/suburb. no pics of the beach itself b/c i didn't want to get sand in the digi, but i did take my Holga on the beach; i just haven't developed the pics yet.

yup, everyone says they like urbanity, and quality housing, but not one goddamned comment. i guess it's more fun to argue about whether Altanta or Houston's got a better downtown.

alot of those buildings go far back as slavery don't they? They even have old slave markets right? That would be a very emotional experience for me to see that in person. Thats a facinating place.

yes.

i took this shot because i'm pretty sure that it's a slave's quarters in the back. it was pretty emotional to think about; i also couldn't help but think that my college radio station, WUSC in Columbia, had its first broadcast from the old slave's quarters for students.



it matches the description here

WOW..very nice! much nicer than any beach town in New Jersey where i grew up. It seems in Charleston people actually care about their town and neighborhood :grouphug:
