This is Founders Alley, Walk, or Row, depending on your viewpoint. Anyone who has been to San Antonio's River Walk, this area is similar but is 3 tiers. The previous photo was ground floor on the waterfront. This is the backside of those buildings and 2-3 stories up from the river. You can just make out street level by the iron walkways (known as Factors Walk) hiding behind the trees in the center which are another 1-2 stories above this level (Factors Alley in my mind). The buildings as a whole were called Factors Row as they were at one time the center of Savannah's cotton factors (aka brokers).
