An interesting little curve area.

I found this "gated" (?) community in Lima. I guess they really don't want any through traffic.









I guess the google driver tipped the guy with the key.

Little Italy in New York





Looks like Chinatown may be taking over



Just for the heck of it, a shot of Newark, NJ

Some Albany, NY grit, though many look like they could be rehab material:

I never did make it to Sioux City when I visited Iowa four years ago. So I decided to check it out on goolge maps. Here's an neighborhood just outside downtown. A little rough around the edges, but that's the kind of area I often visit when on a trip.

First an aerial of downtown



The Ponca Tribe of Nebraska



Residential







Something looks out of place




A small business section in the neighborhood

It looks from that aerial view like the entire downtown core is connected by sky bridges / elevated pedestrian tunnels. Pretty cool.

Cold, but not the frozen tundra of Lambeau Field.......

It's been a while, but I hope to get back in the swing of posting in this thread.

Harrisburg, PA residential areas









However, Harrisburg like many other northeastern cities has plenty of grit too.

An aerial shot of the northern part of the city where some of the blocks are quite empty (a la Detroit)



Now some grit









nice to see flowers in the hood








Lastly, the corner of Summit & Christian in 2011




And in 2015

The railroad tracks in Harrisburg form a huge physical barrier that bisects the city and cuts off the north side. There are multiple socio-economic factors at play here, but I've wondered how things would have looked if the tracks were never there.

Thought I'd get away from city life. I checked out Pine Ridge, SD (a Census Designated Place) which is part of the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pine_R...an_Reservation )

In many ways it seems as down in the dumps as some of the city grit posts. There are many problems including an uptick in the murder rate (for 2016):
http://rapidcityjournal.com/news/loc...6bd807379.html

Anyway on to some pics.












Yippee....a Pizza Hut










Admin building for the Ogala Sioux




There is a bus system




I didn't know there were still Sinclair gas stations






Taxes no matter where you go
