  • Description: Downtown San Jose from the Adobe towers. This photo looks east-south-east over downtown towards Mount Hamilton in the background--the highest peak, on which the Lick Observatory is barely visible.

The building to the left is the Fairmont Hotel. The tangerine building near centre is the The Tech Museum of Innovation; its purplish dome is its IMAX theatre. To the Tech's right, with the red-tile roof, is the Civic Auditorium. On the far right to the rear, with the curved roof and the red-and-white tile mural on the front, is the San Jose Convention Centre.

Full-height palm trees lining the streets have been added as part of the ongoing urban renewal projects taking place since the 1970s.
