name the city?

Is this Manchester?  Is it Leeds?  No, it's Savannah, Georgia, and this is the Cotton Exchange, built in 1886 By William G Preston (a Boston architect).  First impressions of this city (most of which doesn't look remotely like Northern England) is that it's very quiet and lovely.  But if you think there's something strange about this building, look again - you're right.  It's built over a street (that in turn leads to the river).  I'm glad that it's not earthquake country...
