I took these pictures during a run through downtown Richmond and near Canal Walk. I originally set out to find the Triple Crossing, billed as the only place in the world where three Class I railroads intersect in the same spot. After finding it, I made my way toward Richmond Riverfront Plaza, where two identical dark-brown towers stand and are a major feature of the downtown Richmond skyline.
I then headed toward the Monroe Building, which is the tallest building in Richmond and where many of the Commonwealth of Virginia’s offices are. The tower stands over I-95. There’s a landing at the base of the tower that overlooks the interstate, and since the building is on relatively high ground, you can get a great view of the city from there.
Finally, I made my way toward Broad Street, which has a neat view of Shockoe Bottom since it dips as it heads east toward the area.
