Aerial Pictures of Cities from Around the World

  1. Jan 31, 2005 #1
    Hi,

    I thought I would start a thread where we can post aerial pictures of cities from around the world so we can learn about what is really out there. I only started doing this recently and was amazed at how limited my knowledge of the world was. So I will start off by posting pictures of what I consider the greatest city in the world - New York. Here you go: http://www.skypic.com/newyork.htm

    Nope, have to keep the habit a bit longer. There's a demon possession thread over in debunking, and I might need my cross. I can't touch it with my bare hands or it burns really badly, so I need the asbestos habit.

    To be more precise, if you divide the inferior image in 10 horizontal stripes, my house is in the lowest stripe, in one of the square blocks of the left of the stripe

    Seoul is the most populated city of the world, with more than 10 millions of persons living there. Asia is the power of the future, people say!
