Obviously, the view at our house in Vancouver was amazing.
But look, our view in Berlin is not so bad.
This is the view from our balcony.
We look out over a small park and as the trees are still fully-leafed, there’s not that much else to see, but a view on greenery is certainly terrific given our central downtown location.
I don’t think that triangular parks are very common in most cities. In N America this is unlikely given the grid that most cities are laid out in, but even in more irregular European cities, triangles are not a common shape.
Curiously, we lived around the corner from a triangle park in Vancouver and now we look out over a triangle here in Berlin!
What do we see? Beyond the park, across the street, we will (once trees lose leaves) see the S-Bahn/train tracks. That means that we can see far on the one hand, but once the leafy sound barrier disappears, we’ll also hear the trains.
