    If these wires offend you, stay away from most older inner suburbs of most cities in the US. The US has wires all over it's suburbs, mostly hidden by trees.

    Oh, and for urban wires, never EVER live in Tokyo or much of Los Angeles, LOL!

    I happen to dislike wires in urban areas, but in Tokyo I could deal with them because of the urban structure there.. As for Tokyo, I tend not to notice ugliness (wires, grey ugly buildings) when the city is so exciting there are so many small pedestrian lanes everywhere in which to walk.

    Crikey! That "Wires in the woods" view in #1 is plain scary. Fire hazard!

    Likewise (plus safety hazard) for that nice Manayunk stairway in #6.

    I'm spoilt. I live in an old neighbourhood that was converted to underground power quite a few years ago .

    This is the only thread on Wired that's not off-topic.
