Looking west: 48 cityscapes of Athens (part 2)

Here's the second part of a photographic series of posts, with views from my home, mostly towards the western mountains and suburbs of Athens.

The first one below, is of a residential building at Aghias Lavras St., in the neighborhood of Ano Patissia. It's one of the few tall buildings in Greece, with a total of 16 floors above ground. For a full list and history of Athens' tall buildings take a look at this thread, in "Skyscrapercity.com".
