Alright, after much delay I have finally got around to posting the second half of my Kitsilano trek.

You can see Part I here…
http://forum.skyscraperpage.com/showthread.php?t=211765

To refresh your memories, I'm starting Part II where I left off at the end of Part I - Broadway and Arbutus, heading east towards Burrard:





Some of the residential found down the nearby side streets. I wouldn't exactly call this one typical of Kitsilano, but it is home to quite a random assortment of housing types…




Turning down Burrard Street. This particular stretch has been cemented as the main luxury car strip in the city in recent years.




















Main building in the background is the Seaforth Highlanders Armoury (undergoing renovations) and Molson Brewery nextdoor to the left...


Turning west down 1st I wander into one of the small pockets of retail outside the neighbourhood's main commercial drags of West 4th and Broadway...












A short walk away and I'm on Cornwall, the main drag along Kits Beach…












Looking towards Kits Beach...




































Heading up Yew - the anchor street of the Kits Beach bar scene - connecting Cornwall with West 4th, one of the city's destination retail strips…










Some more typical Kits heritage homes, except these were incorporated into an apartment building a few decades ago. This particular stretch is West 3rd, which has one of the few original brick streets that are still left in the city. For whatever reason though, only half the street has the brick remaining.












West 4th - once the heart of Vancouver's hippie scene in the 60s, but little evidence of that left...
































The Naam - Vancouver's oldest remaining vegetarian restaurant and one of the last few reminders of West 4th's hippie history...




Some new infill…








































And back where I started…


That's all! :cheers:
