That last shot is gorgeous! I'd love a bigger version for my desktop

Anyway, great job. I've never heard of this city before but, it definitely has a nice skyline. Thanks!

Very interesting, thank-you!

Maybe not a super-beautiful town, but looks prosperous and growing. Would like to visit one day.

^^ Thanks!
Presidente Prudente isn't a super-beautiful city, because it's away 5 hours of São Paulo, with only 200,000 ppl.
.
.



I know some americans and british people working in large schools of English here... lol

It's 2 hours away of Maringá and Londrina. (most known cities).

Any doubt about my city, just ask :okay:

Fellipe, why do Londrina and President Prudente, which I think are the closest major cities to Maringá, have such a different urbanism in relation to that city??

I mean, both are beautiful cities, but Maringá seems to be a level above not only them but most other brazilian cities, in terms of urbanism (at least in my humble opinion).

Do you have any insight into this, considering that you live close to Maringá and probably already visited the city?

Pres. Prudente has 200,000 inhab., Maringá: 400,000 and Londrina: 600,000.
Talking about urbanism, Maringá is above of Pres. Prudente. Why?
Maringá is a total planned city, and the most green of Brazil, locate in the north of Paraná state (a rich region) and Presidente Prudente is located in the Western SP state, the less rich region of the state.
Compare this urbanization to the aerial pic of P. Prudente

Maringá


My G'd, what a envy... i'm really jealous :lol:

And Londrina, well, it's the 3rd largest city of all south.

So, yeap, I visited Maringá many times...
Maringá, Prudente and Londrina are interconnected,
People from Londrina studies in univerisities of Pres. Prudente,
all the vestibular of Prudente are advertised in the two cities, shopping... etc

hope you understood my english

I think you forgot to post your aerial pic of Presidente Prudente.

Anyway, I am envious of Maringá urbanism. I think most brazilian cities are.

I think this photo and other photos found on this thread show very well the quality of Maringá´s urbanism
http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1077689




Btw, you said Maringá was planned. Why was it? Why werent cities around also planned? How old is Maringá compared to Londrina and Presidente Prudente?

Well, I didnt forget the aerial pic, it's one of the first in this thread.

The old of cities: Pres. Prudente 92, Maringá 62 and Londrina 75 years old.
Presidente Prudente is the oldest and the most small of the triangle.

I guess Maringá and Londrina was planned because of concern of its governments, theim prepared the cities for growth... while the government of São Paulo are worried about cities at growth like São José dos Campos, Guarulhos, Campinas (all those biggest than Maringá or Londrina).

I'm always really impressed by the skylines and density of even midsize Brazilian cities, compared to American cities of similar or even much larger size. Looks like a pretty nice city too.

Brazilians likes buildings and density because that's a way to be near the downtown.

Great to see these photos. Brazil is definitely looks to be prospering. I would recommend going to teach English there to a lot of young americans as a way to kill a year or two because the economy is so bad here. If I hadn't already gone to Korea (Busan) to teach I would go to Brazil. But soon I will be moving to Georgia (Europe) to start a real career. The english teaching days are over ---
