The Beirut Central District (BCD) is the name given to Beirut’s historical and geographical core, the “vibrant financial, commercial, and administrative hub of the country.” It is situated on the city’s northern coast and includes many monuments and places of importance to the citizens of Beirut, including Martyrs' Square.
Beirut Central District is sometimes called Solidere, after the company of the same name founded by Rafik Hariri that has undertaken reconstruction of the neighborhood after the Lebanese Civil War.

    Anyone checked the second from left minaret at the blue domed mosque? The top is suspended on air. Great work, I could spend days here. This is like being a legal peeping tom.

    If you zoom in on the 2 red cars diagonal from one another on the left side of the picture, the top half of one of the cars is missing
