    Atlantic City is as densley populated as any other major American city, but covers a very small land area.

    City Population: 41,000
    Immediate metro area population: 365,255 (2003 est.)
    Expanded metro area population: 6,188,463

    And for my town (Pomona, a suburb of Atlantic City, where ACY is located):

    Population: 4100
    Part of Atlantic City Metropolitan Area

    Another interesting fact: Atlantic City employs more people on a daily basis than any whole county in NJ does (basically saying that Atlantic County employs the most).

    Wow watertown, 40k. Seems a little high!!!

    Well Ithaca it self has about 35-40k. With Cornell and IC it has about 70k. The whole of Tompkins County has about 150k. (Including Students)You can see that Cornell and Ithaca College nearly double our city size in the winter

    CHS has about 90,000 within the city limits, but about 600,000 in the metro area. It will hit 1,000,000 in 2015, as the rate of growth is very fast.

    Looking at these pictures, it makes me wonder about the populations of these cities (and towns). Anyone care to post the population of their area? Watertown has about 40,000 people in the city and about 100,000 in the metro area, when you include Fort Drum. Syracuse, in 2000, had a metro population of 732,114. How about CHS, Grand Forks, Hartford, ACY, MEM, Erie, etc...?

    The pictures don't do it justice. At all.

    Anyone who has been here can tell you.

    Man, HK looks amazing, I really want to go there sometime. Since taking pictures of downtown GFK isn't worth the power that it would take from my battery, I will instead post a few pictures from Tokyo where my parents actually live.

    I can't find any of the pictures I took (which are much better IMO). None of these really can capture the true beauty and historicity of Charleston!!!!! At all!!!


    An overview of Broad Street:



    King Street is the touristy shopping section. It's kinda the main drag:




    This is the "old market" to the right. It isn't really authentic--just a tourist trap:


    The historic College of Charleston campus:


    Waterfront Park:



    The Battery/White Point Gardens:




    And to top it off:


    Maybe later I can post some I took...

    Hartford is about mid-sized, not too big. However there is a major problem with crime. It was #7 I think on the most dangerous cities thing published a few weeks ago. There was a shooting this week where 2 kids go shot as a school bus stop and one who got shot actually got on the bus and went to school then went to the nurses office. They are trying to "revitalize" it and they improved the waterfront area but a greater part of the city (the parts that aren't down town) is in need help and nothing much is being done it seems. And then there was yesterday when I went to go take pics of the holiday lights and I was told I couldn't take pictures as I was setting up my stuff, totally rediculus. I wish they would take as much interest in helping the communities that need it as they do in making sure that people don't take photos in certain places.

    These pics were actually taken in a park in the town across the river, nobody was around then so i had no problems.
    It's good they are revitalizing the city. The downtown area looks really nice from your pictures.

    There is a similar crime problem in Atlantic City. Atlantic Av. (the last street before the casinos, boardwalk, and beach) is okay, but wandering even a block west of Atlantic Av. into the "real Atlantic City" will lead you to extremely undesireable areas, where some of NJ's highest crime rates exsist. Only Trenton, Camden, and Asbury Park have worse crime ratings! Even downtown has come into a state of extreme disrepair, and it really is disappointing, seeing that the state of NJ is letting the downtown commercial district of one of the world's most popular tourist cities decline like this.

    Here are some scenes from Downtown Atlantic City:



    Yea, some parts of Hartford look about the same way near/in the downtown area.

    btw... in my pics the building you see closest to the river is part of the new complex that they are building as part of the waterfront revitalization. There is supposed to be a convetion center, hotel and some other stuff, not sure exactly what though.
