Moscow condo buildings
"Where People Live and Work" is the third part of our photo series "Night Drive through Moscow". These photographs are the result of my four hour drive through Moscow on January 6, 2007. The first part, "Where Tourists Go" showed places popular with tourists like the Kremlin and Moscow's cathedrals. The second part, "View from a Car Window" showed the streets of Moscow at night, casinos, and advertisements.
Please click on the extended post link to see photos of Moscow's condominiums and office buildings, places where Muscovites live and work every day. There are many more neighborhoods and business districts in Moscow than are depicted in this photo post, but again, these are the results from a quick spin around the south-western part of the city.
Enjoy the pictures, and please allow some time for the extended post to load due to the large number of photos.
