It reminds me very much of the smaller cities in France like Nice and Tolousse.

^yeah weird huh now that youve mentioned it? Its kind of a run down area too but thanks to the Hispanics/Latinos who have moved into the area they've revived one of the old Chinese Theatres (an old architectual jewel) instead of knocking it down they turned part of it into a Spanish Language Church and another part of it into a Caribbean & Latin Market. Just up from there the Polynesians like Samoans, Tongans, etc and Micronesians like Marshallese, Chuukese, etc and other Hispanic/Latinos like Puerto Ricans & Mexicans to Filipinos have a lot of businesses and even a mix of things like there's this one Market called "Yamasin" that sells Polynesian, Micronesian, & Spanish foods to support the surrounding community not too mention countless other businesses. Even Israeli's opened up a market in the area to support the growing community there. Its still a fairly poor area well parts of it but its been a magnet for immigrants like forever from many poor countries as its still affordable and close to downtown.

Yes I found some of heritage buildings well worth a classification to be retained.Since Honolulu is derived from many cultures and civilisations,it is always good to see what was before.Some of the pictures are not unlike older areas in some Australian cities.Cheers. :o

Nice pictures.

I've never pictured Honolulu as a real city. It's all beaches and hills right?

Now I know. I like the variety as well, and glad to see the older builings getting restored.
