The only place that has yards and grass like that--St. Francis Wood--doesn't really have Victorian architecture.

@BTinSF: Maybe you're right about the victorian houses. And about the bridges, like i said before, it's really hard to do it like they are in the reality; but theres's another problem, the diagonal bridges in Simcity 4. I saw a lot of pictures of Oakland and San Francisco (and Google Earth too) and i made the city basing me on that pictures. So thanks for that post in all the ways; i'll change some of the buildings.

@Tanster: Just New York and San Francisco & Oakland. I'm making Detroit, and the next of the list is Miami, Hong Kong and Chicago. London is still not in the list, sorry.

I love the warehouse on the left. Is that in the game or from the STEX? I haven't played the game in 2 years so I don't remember.

Thanks everyone.

@Wolverine: the warehouse it's a common building of the game; it only appears in weird cases.

@Bergenser: these are the next ones

-Miami
-Hong Kong
-Chicago
-Dubai
-Washington

So you just have to wait.....a few months.

By the way, i have Detroit too; i'll post it soon.
