After going through the first page, Sydney strikes me as being very Manhattan, but in an West Coast way. Kind of like if New York and San Francisco had a baby.

It's easy to see why it's one of the world's most beautiful, liveable cities. Well done.

I heard they were getting rid of that monorail also.

An exhibit last night on the Sydney Opera House, using internet submitted photographs taken by Sydneysiders.

What a masterpiece of a place.

Anyone know how Sydney's density compares to San Francisco's? I always thought of them as sister cities (Sydney being just a lot cleaner and less full of scumbags).

They are officially sister cities.
And Sydney's density is probably similar in the inner city ring. The city is like two cities, you have the east which is the 19th century boundaries of the city and is higher density, and the west which is miles and miles of detached housing, of similar density to LA suburbs.

Actually, here are some examples of the suburbs in the west. These are from Ryde, which is about 15km from the city, and is generally considered the border of Western Sydney.

In the middle of Western Sydney, 23km from central Sydney and 32km from Penrith, which is the fringe of sprawl, is Parramatta. Parramatta is a CBD in it's own right, and is the heart of the Western Suburbs. It is on the Parramatta River, which eventually becomes Sydney Harbour.
Western Sydney has significantly lower average incomes than Eastern Sydney and has a large immigrant population. In fact only 30% of the residents of Parramatta were born in Australia, with the two largest countries of origin being India and China. Western Sydney is wonderfully diverse and is a great example of Australia's multiculturalism.

These are from Anzac Day which is the war memorial day, it is a federal public holiday to remember the lost and thank veterans. Allies also get to march. Also note that the Australian Army carries on many traditions from British Empire day.
I believe the US has a similar holiday called Memorial Day.

The two inner areas on the Pyrmont peninsul.
Starting with Ultimo. Ultimo is the tail end of the CBD, and is a significant student area being near the University of Sydney and the University of Technology Sydney. Dominated by the Frasers Broadway project that is nearing completion.

Pyrmont is a former industrial area on the harbour, and it's quarries were the source of much of Sydney's sandstone. By the 1980s though, Pyrmont had declined as industry moved out. The suburb was derelict, the population had declined to just 900. But a successful urban renewal project in the 90s, has today turned it into a sophisticated inner city district.
