That's the only shady thing, I noticed about that area in St. Francisville.
Nah, I was talking more about this part, with these perfect, manicured, old-fashioned houses. I also get it a bit here. Just a slightly creepy vibe, like the town has a bit of a supernatural aura, I can't fully explain it.

Brewerytown in Philly. That area in Oakland near Jack London Square sadly to say while it is nice, seems a little sterile and too many high rise loft buildings to me. I like the traditional urban feel of that area in Philly, better.

BTW Timid, thanks for better explaining what you meant about St. Francisville. I totally see what you are saying, now! Yes, that does look a little dark and creepy for sure, like there could be hidden things(like spirits, or something who knows) hiding in those dark tree areas.

Now for two college towns, a little bit outside of Pittsburgh now. Meadville, PA(Allegheny College, btw): https://goo.gl/maps/ppXPd9qTMeLPGVv49

Both have many gaps between their buildings, but Meadville fills them in with greener, nicer looking things.

Sherwood Forest due to the more consistent infrastructure...

I'll pick Buffalo, between these 2. BTW a few blocks away in Buffalo, I found this nice Halloween front lawn decoration: https://goo.gl/maps/AHSMvRfDaTNxn3F69

And a few blocks away in Sacramento, I found this (is this art deco style? I'm not sure, I think it is) art deco-like tower, along with this nice older neon sign. You can street view look inside the cafe/restaurant that is a part of this building too on a side note if you want, but this is a look outside that building: https://goo.gl/maps/Ci6k8qvzqy1FKdkc9

Now for another one. A few posts back someone mentioned Bratenahl, OH, and then I suddenly remembered in my mind that an old college friend of my brother, originally was from nearby Cleveland Heights. So I thought that might make for an interesting area, to include in a comparison.

Tough one, but I'll go with Cleveland Heights due to having a "greener" look to it.

Charleston looks whitewashed, and it has no character. Binghamton looks authentic.

Here's a state capitol comparison:

Atlanta, Georgia

or

Des Moines, Iowa?

Des Moines eats Atlanta's lunch right here. Imposing statue, multiple sets of stairs, much better design with the crown. Just all around better. Also a nice touch that the statue is positioned as though its viewing the skyline which is directly behind this shot. Really cool.
