The Many Faces of Budapest (part II)
As I told in my previous post the true face of the city is off of its main streets. Sure Budapest has its fair share of multi-level car parks and big parking lots but they are there where they can be seen by most foreigners. Right there where the image matters.
But once again are block or two away from the main streets and the face of the city is quite different. Here there are more modest parking lots for the common citizens. And as you can see here clearly used to be a building, its shapes can still be seen on the surrounding buildings. And back there on the left, the building that used to be connected to this building-now-a-parking-lot has even some of its structures ripped off.
Not a pretty sight but hey, the parking space seems to be in quite high demand here.
