I know Birmingham is often compared to Pittsburgh, but I can't help but find a lot of similarities to Buffalo. Lots of similar architecture.

Downtown Birmingham - Absolutely Beautiful

I will probably be accused of being biased; but Birmingham is absolutely one of the most beautiful cities in the South. There are few cities in the South that have the topography ( The hills right in the downtown core) and architectural diversity like Birmingham (one of the largest early 20th Century terra-cotta skylines –in the south) – still intact. I love downtown and South Side- even Homewood, which is beginning to have an impressive urban density with all the mid-rise residential development taking place. Thanks for sharing the photos. Considering all the places you’ve lived (LSyd) I can tell through your photographs that Birmingham is one of your favorite cities.

Every photo seems to have a story behind it, worth hearing. Although the weather didn't seem to be the best for photos, this thread is easily one of the top-3 B'ham threads I've seen :eek:kay: Can't single out one image, but if hard pressed I would go with the one below:

^^ That is the view of Birmingham from a-top Red Mountain. This is probably the most popular scenic overlook in the Birmingham region - although there are several. Some are less well-know than others.

Very nice pics...thanks for posting. Birmingham is, by far, Alabama's premier city, IMO.

I hope this doesn't piss off the Huntsville people too much, but that town always reminded me of a great big office park. It's nice and all, but it doesn't compare to Birmingham in any way, shape or form. I know people are going to ask who am I to talk being from a little rat bastard town like Gadsden, but I still have my opinions. :)
