I really enjoyed the Old Port District of Portland, which has been restored to its appearance in the 19th Century.
The architecture is an interesting mix of styles, spanning the course of the 1800’s.
While it’s not a perfect analogy, it sort of reminds me of what the St. Louis Riverfront could have looked like if the Arch had not been built.
There are no vacant lots, and no parking lots to break the street wall.
The windows are not too terribly accurate, but it’s still a great rehab..
