Next will be casinos. I am quite surprised more of these barges haven't been turned into condos and apartments. Better than clearing land and ruining the habitat. :)
I like these.

thats a great idea... i saw a show on TV, i believe it was somwhere along the maybe the mississippi river or one of those huge ones, they made a whole neighborhood of house boats, only not the kind you can drive, they are just like regular homes, but on barges and they are docked and all linked together by docks and walkways.

I saw that, and I think there are some North of me, up by St. Paul. There are all kinds of little shacks built on 55 gallon drums right here in town. But the barge idea is completely sound. There is an aweful lot of waterfront unusable right now that could easily be made accessable by a simple two lane road and gravel parking lot, completely reversible to nature with little effort and put the barge in the water way. For that matter, they would give new life to old flooded quarry operations, cannals and manmade lakes anywhere there is water enough to float them. ;)

HDR doesn't work for me in the first one but I dig the effect in the second one. Steampunk-ish.
