It's a government city but there are numerous gardens. The famous Peeing Boy statue of course, but I like the small streets best. The famous Grand Place town square is popular. if you like chocolate, you MUST visit Pierre Marcolini's shop near there. Here is a story about chocolate and Brussels that will take you to some different areas:

Thanks. I remember reading that article a while back. I'll just have a random walkabout and see what I get from it.

I was there briefly this summer, much like Paris you can walk and cover most of the city very easily, it's a very nice walk actually

The marollen can be nice but busy and a bit of a tourist area these days. That's the lower side of the courthouse. The courthouse in itself is impressive but in restoration. Around the Zavel is also an option. Other place could be south station area, and around the cattle market there is also a lot of activity but I haven't any idea how safe it is to photograph around there these days.
