I was wondering if the woman on the ground was on her way home from the bar.

Main Street, Ellicott City, MD

Google Maps identifies it as Frederick Road, but that's not quite accurate. Through the historic district of Ellicott City, it's Main Street. On either side of it, it's Frederick Road.

Unfortunately, it doesn't look quite this nice anymore, ever since a devastating flash flood in July of this year. But they're working on rebuilding it, so hopefully it will return to his former charm.

Interesting series of events I just found while browsing street view:

A lady, I'm assuming older lady takes fall while walking where ever she was walking
https://www.google.com/maps/@35.1994...2!8i6656?hl=en

zoomed
https://www.google.com/maps/@35.1994...2!8i6656?hl=en

Another lady sees this and stops in the middle of the road
https://www.google.com/maps/@35.1993...2!8i6656?hl=en

And does what you are supposed to do when you see someone needs help
https://www.google.com/maps/@35.1992...2!8i6656?hl=en

https://www.google.com/maps/@35.1991...2!8i6656?hl=en

https://www.google.com/maps/@35.1990...2!8i6656?hl=en

https://www.google.com/maps/@35.1990...2!8i6656?hl=en

Fascinating, that this little scene was captured on Street View. And God bless that kind-hearted woman who stopped to help a stranger in distress.

I have been to Louisville before and enjoyed the lushness and architecture of the area.

I wish I would have gone to Lexington for a few days when I was in that part of the country. I have always heard really good things about Lexington and even looked up statistics about the area and it seems to have a very high quality of life for many and more amenities then the average city.

It also looks like a very clean city.

I really like combination of the huge brick homes and the lushness. Looks like an awesome city!

Here's something somewhat similar in Fieldston in the Bronx:

Washington Heights, near the GW Bridge:

Small street (formerly for carriage houses for the mansions in the area) in Brooklyn Heights:

Didn't think New York has neighbourhoods like this, the first three reminds me of some the suburbs back in my home town in London.

Hi, seems like it would be fun to keep this thread going. I live in the Colonial Village area of North Arlington, Virginia. It's close to the Courthouse Metro subway.

https://www.google.com/maps/place/Co...!4d-77.0825826

The drawback to living here is that housing is expensive, and parking is difficult. However, the walk score here is 96 - easy to walk to restaurants, grocery stores, movie theater, coffee shops, banks, etc.
