I just wanted say was i had an amazing trip to Northern Ireland last year.
I have to say the Belfast just blew me away. What a wonderfull city.Vibrant,friendly and beautifull to look at. The waterfront development is spectacular.I loved seeing the ferry warf and the old dry dock redone. you can tell that it is a city that cares about it's achitecture.
I live in a small city called Troy,which was the birthplace of the industrial revolution in America.
Troy is also unique because there was a great fire in the late 1800's, which burned down all of the city center. my point being, all of down downtown was rebuilt at the same time.As a result Troy is an excelent example of victorian architecture. By the way, tomorrow is the Victorian Stroll, a holiday event that brings out young an old dressed in victorian costume. About 30,000 typicaly come each year.(It should be interesting since we have had a 25 inch snowfall tonignt)
