Great choice of pix, you have good taste!
That man was sad when said São Paulo is one of uglyest city in the world
São Paulo is A WORLD, there live all kind of people, so can be in some places ugly and other places, beautiful... never take general comment to the city, pix ok, but city no! it's ignorance.

Thank you for posting

Hey, this pic is really nice.. from Berriny financial district

Sao Paulo is not a beautiful city but it sure looks interesting and I would like to go there - have been to Rio but not as yet S.P.
Thanks for the good photos.

Yes Taller, but sometimes its density is stifling, in some neighborhoods people see the sun only at 12:00 pm , because has buildings in everywhere, all the sides
because in past there were no laws about the size of constructions and density

But there's people who like it...

São Paulo would follow the example of Curitiba, where tallests buildings are only built in large avenues, by municipal law

I would guess at least 4,000 high-rises, if I had to guess.

Good thread, I moved to Northeastern Brasil a couple of months ago with my girlfriend and I want to discover the country. But I only know a minimum of Portuguess, so I only look at the pictures in the brasil forum.
