Re:
hehe.. well its been nicknamed the gerkin, because of the shape. Its actually called the Swiss Tower I think (its also not 100% completed, hence the cranes). Its lit up at night.. very pretty.

EVERY back street in london looks like Diagon Alley to Americans ;)

Re:
lol, i figured it was like that the Diagon Alley comment would seem like that. :) its probably because we don't have such colorful and inviting back alleys here. if we have any at all.

Re:
i suppose in places like NYC and San Fransisco there are some alleys like that, but generally speaking they arn't fixed up or you don't want to go down them past sundown.
it seems to be a facet of the US's general disinterest in anything old or historical. they would rather tear something down and rebuild a new building than preserve the old structure and fix it up. it all really sad actually.
