It is always most difficult to assess and perceive one's own personality objectively. The real objectivity comes from the perceptions of others, who have had multitudinous experiences of other people, and can observe you with greater perspicacity and objectivity.
So it is with our own city. We see it through our own eyes, and not through those who come from elsewhere, often getting a first impression of Vancouver. For this reason I am starting this thread with a perception of the Pacific Centre, from people from all over.
Maybe we can add to the thread, maybe not, but it is always good "to see ourselves how others see us."
