It may look European, but thats just because of the density. The architecture is East Coast American. You would find similar scenes in Philadelphia, Boston, Balitmore, New York...even in cities like Pittsburgh, Cincinatti, and as far west as St. Louis. These are how cities in America should have been, but the car put an end to that.

And then they built San Francisco.

Jokes aside, what you say is all too sadly true. There was a day when cities from Memphis to Houston to Los Angeles all were as lively as in these pictures, but that day is not today.

Freedom for Belarus!

Also, there are some cities like Orlando where we are dreaming with this pics, but we are living in a car nation...

Good job! You captured DC in a way that many people fail to do. These pictures show the real thing.
:2cents:

Not really, most people who live in D.C. have a different experience, This is not what I think is the "REAL" D.C. ; Next time goonsta should go to the hood and show how most people in D.C. live ; not just pics of the downtown / ritzy 'hoods - > but then again no one here really wants to see the D.C. grit ; its easier to just tour the nice areas and pretend D.C. doesnt have serious economic and social problems.
