To this day, area around the old Singapore River mouth, the Downtown Core, remains the most expensive and economically important piece of land in Singapore.

This space has been a public meeting place since 1737 and is one of America’s oldest public markets.

  • Main Street Station

    Main Street Station

    Richmond is full of different architectural styles. Quite often you’ll find a historical building directly next to a brand new building, or in the case of Main Street Station you’ll notice that the highway has actually been built around the building! According to www.richmondgov.com, the building was originally built in 1901, and was for the next 74 years a “bustling transportation hub.” However, due to a decrease in passenger rail service, it was closed in 1975. The building remained closed for the next 28 years, and was re-opened in 2003 after years of renovation, and now has limited train service to downtown Richmond.

    Both a Portal and a Destination: LA Union Station

    The Union Station in downtown LA is usually just a place you go to...to go somewhere else. Hundreds of people arriving and leaving, you don't really notice it much outside of its usual purpose: it's just a train station. But here's what I think, it deserves a much-needed second glance.

  • Downtown Seattle

    Downtown Seattle

    Grunge music, perpetual rain, the foundation of today’s most popular coffee…step foot in downtown Seattle and you’ll find it all, whether it’s coming from the music of street performers, the freshly brewed aromas at Pike Place Market, or the feel of your sweatshirt hood pulled against your face. These are things commonly associated with Seattle, even for people who’ve never been there before. But what I got from visiting this city was more than what could be contained in any amount of cliches combined.
