I meant to post this picture last week from our Bday trip to NYC.  The picture came out pretty cool, but it was absolutely amazing from inside the plane.  The sun beams shining through the clouds onto

Here's a video if you've not seen it on Charlotte

I feel like that video falsley portrays our city, or at least the urban core that a lot of us cherish. See some of the responses below. Nonetheless, thanks for sharing.

"yeah Charlotte for the most part is dead..and if this is the biggest city in North Carolina What does that say for the rest of North Carolina."

Meh, I wouldn't worry about the comments. You could put a video of Mother Teresa feeding orphans on Youtube and you'd get negative comments from some of the trolls over there. Though I agree with the idea that the video really didn't do a good job of presenting the vibrancy of Charlotte.

Check the webcam, they took the 3rd one down over a month ago and nobody posted/noticed it. There is no longer a need for cranes with the 1st and second building.

Ahhh. And I check on the webcam almost daily.... I knew it was talked about coming down, but that crane snuck outta that site. Good call nibble.

Here are some pics of our masses of cranes uptown. As for our new tourism slogan "Charlotte's got a lot......of cranes!" The second picture is of the new Charlotte School of Law. They are rolling right along with that building. It will have a great view of the skyline from that location.

I took a trip down to the QC today for a ride on the light rail. I got a new camera for x-mas and it's a big upgrade from what I had before. Here are a few shots I took while uptown...........

I've heard alot of talk about how great the skyline looks from Wilkinson, so on my way home I decided to see it for myself. Sorry for the sign, but you get the picture.
