Not sure if I've posted this before -- if I have, I apologize.
I stumbled across this link where someone has taken some awesome shots of the city. There's just some amazing work here and totally worth browsing through.
There is a lot -- but gives a great, professional, glimpse of the city. The beautiful, the character-filled, and the blow-away disturbing.http://forum.skyscraperpage.com/showthread.php?t=123030
I think these were done in 2007. There are some subsequent works that were posted in other links -- I'll throw them up, too. (It's crashing my explorer right now - not sure why, wasn't before, but maybe just prepare for that.) There's one particularly troubling set entitled "post-industrial" that shows a lot of the city's rougher side.
But, overall, I look at these images and am pretty impressed. We have a very diverse cityscape -- from the beautiful watersheds and urban forest, to the stark, cold industrial areas. A lot of character -- and visually, I think it stacks up against almost anywhere.
