Mid-town Phoenix


A view of the high-rise office buildings along Central Avenue in the mid-town business area of Phoenix.  This is my neighborhood and I love seeing those buildings from my back yard.  I said they were all office buildings but, I must correct myself.  That one way down on the end is the One Lexington condo building that I've featured on this site many times before.

I am so surprised to see the tall buildings in Phoenix. I was last there in 1953. You might be able to find some picture books of downtown Phoenix from that era but there were no buildings this tall. It was a little, peaceful, desert, oasis with lots of adobe walls.

I always find it fascinating to see other cityscapes, Phoenix is looking good Sharon.

Love the high-rise buildings with the palm trees.

I've never been an urban dweller, but I think it has it's own special appeal.

Great shot! I always wonder how you manage to get these city shots with no traffic.

A rather impressive array of hi-risers.

Wonderful perspective Sharon! Somehow I missed yesterday's motel shot. I like that place - so tidy!

I always loved Central Avenue and you've shown me in brilliant detail why that was so. I worked in a small office building on the east side of the street, not far south of Camelback. (Went to ASU at night)

You are a REAL urban dweller, Sharon. Do you walk to work? My last year in Columbus, I lived in an apartment that was two blocks from my office. The view from my apartment's living room window was the sign from my company's building. It was very convenient but might have carried company spirit a bit too far . . .
