Carnival of Cities for Oct 8 2008

Welcome to the Carnival of Cities, a round-up of recent articles about cities around the world.

I'm hosting this week's edition of the Carnival of Cities for Sheila at FamilyTravelLogue. The next few weeks will be hosted by some great bloggers including: Liz at Traveling the Green Way (Oct 15) then Anil at FoXnoMad: Travel Smarter (Oct 22) and finally Mara at The Mother of All Trips (Oct 29.)

Would you like to join the carnival next time? Submit your (one, non-spammy) blog post about any aspect of a SINGLE city - thanks!

US Cities

Glass mosaics on mezzanine walls of NYC's 42nd Street (Times Square) for the A, C and E trains. This mosaic was just installed since I photographed it as the adhesive was still drying and the workmen were sweeping up their mess!"

Sheila Scarborough presents Travel to teach your kids: what my daughter learned in Belgium’s Flanders Fields | Family Travel Guide posted at Family Travel Guide, saying, "Why take your kids to learn about wars and battle? It's too important not to. Here's how my preteen, her grandparents and I visited the WWI battlefields near Leper, Belgium."

    I love GrrlScientist's photos of the glass mosaics on the walls of the NYC subway system. My favorites are her photos of the Museum of Natural History subway station at 81st and Central Park West, where the walls are covered with plant and animal species, as well as geological and astronomical images, rendered in mosaics on the tiles. I especially admire this red-striped nautilus whooshing down the stairs:
