Cheap flights are usually Tuesday/Wednesday when people can't travel unless it is a long planned out vacation.
Doesn't meant that high speed rail travel will be different.

Strange how Seattle never gets heat for having a lot of surface parking lots in it's core, but the sunbelt cities do.

Both cities, along with Los Angeles, Dallas, Houston, Miami, Chicago, and New York will have new supertalls (1,000 feet or 300 meters) either built or under construction if all goes well by 2020.

But at the same time, the urbanity somewhat balances out a little better.

I don't see how those are any more or less accurate than the others. They're all accurate. Some were taken from the air and some from the ground. Nothing looks doctored or photoshopped.

Well it dosn't really matter anymore the big parking lots North of Seattle now have cranes there becoming Amazon world headquarters. And the big parkinglot buy the convention center is becoming a hotel . Most of the parking lots where in South Lake and Denny area and is being built up fast . Amazon took up the last three large parking lots . Then there was the Seattle times Parking Lot wich was bought by Vancouver developers and there building three towers not much left then.
