Al mashriq - The Levant [Prev] [Next]

Aerial photo of metropolitan Beirut showing the Green-Line, and how it demarcates two attractor bassins: West Beirut, East Beirut, and how Beirut Central District was turned into a vacuum. The north - south axes between the port and the airport roughly coincides with the demarcation line. This would correspond with an axes of transportation. The east - west axes is however not that evident, even though it to some extent can be read as following partly Rue de L'Independence, becoming Rue Damas.
