"Get in more scene from across the street" is a bit vague, may be it's an ultra-wide angle that you are looking for, ideal for landscapes also...
For general, technical info and reviews from some very professional photographers re: Nikon lenses look:
http://www.nikonlinks.com
The section dealing with wide angles here:
http://www.nikonlinks.com/equipment_..._zoom-wide.htm
There is also a dedicated forum for all Nikon lens users at:

I had the 14-24mm Nikon and can vouch that it is a superb lens, i traded it in for a 24-70mm however because now on fullframe thats as wide as i want to go for now, hope this helps,
Gary...

Thanks. Nikon's a little high for me. Repair service could stand some repair.

Re: Lens story

Not sure how serious you are about your photograph, but I'd buy either a good quality Nikon lens or Canon.

this is a good reference site

Then i guess the suggestion is out of the question to purchase or rent a Tilt-Shift (TS) lens for your architectural shots then, even if the subject is still to large, you could utilize the shift movements for a very high quality seamless panorama

Re: Lens story

Or use Photoshop's Lens Correction Filter as advised by Diva Eismann.
