Salt City Dusk.

Recommended Posts

Went downtown tonight and snapped some photos. SOME kicked ass, others were too dark or too blury. But who cares right? A lot of people out tonight, which is odd because everyone says downtown is dead. Oh, and they weren't goin to a Jazz game cause they weren't playin tonight.

Anyway, enjoy the photo tour.

A view of the Wells Fargo Center and One Utah Center from the corner of Broadway and State.

Eastern Broadway with some ugly buildings. Eastern downtown is older and uglier.

Again looking up State, but this time from the other side.

Wow! Awesome tour, Sean! SLC might not have much in the way of height, but it sure has a lot of great historic architecture. :) A nice mix of buildings from all eras (even though I'm not too fond of the 60s/70s architectural styles myself). And it's nice to see so many people out and about. I wouldn't have expected to see so many people of on a weeknight, so that was a pleasant surprise.

It's odd Scott, Salt Lake City has a lot of Boston ties. Lots of our architecture came from Boston architects and hell we even have a building called the Boston Building (twin is the New House) they were Salt Lake City's first true skyscrapers.

Here is the Boston/NewHouse Buildings on Main Street.

The Boston Building is the left one.

TRAX is our light-rail line. It was finished in 1998 and basically goes from Sandy (south valley) to the Delta Center (downtown) and has a UofU spur that goes from downtown to the University of Utah. They're planning on an airport spur, a West Valley spur, SugarHouse spur (by me). They're also starting to create commuter rail lines.

Yeah, SLC even got light rail before Detroit. Unless you consider Coleman's train to nowhere light rail. LOL.
