up top.

The rooftops and cornices of Charleston are really special, but I don't think they get nearly as much attention as they deserve. On our main artery, King Street, it's easy to get distracted by all of the action at street level and forget to look up. That's where you'll find a reminder of just how historic this city is. These are just a few buildings I spotted on a recent, short stroll down King.

They sure don't build 'em like they used to.


  1. I am guilty of getting distracted by all the goings on and not always appreciating the beautiful architecture...especially on King Street. Great pictures!

  2. I think I pay more attention to the buildings on King Street than anything out. The building on the left of the second photo is one of my favorites... I think it's the one with red and white striped brick around the windows! And of course the Kress building. Who can resist a little Art Deco?! Great shots!
