You are biased with your "futureology" focus pulling you towards the 'new kids on the block with the most shiny infrastructure.

Dubai is just the johnny come lately, and most of its skyscrapers are plastic junk and of dubious quality outside a handful of gems. They would be really going there for the beach and the sumptuous resorts, and "exotic" appeal, lol. Seoul isn't really a skyscraper city so I don't see how they'd be flocking there. Besides that, it's a grey ugly sprawl, not much of a honeymoon destination.

Also, most honeymoon destinations are very 'known', and that doesn't stop them. So, although NY is not really the most obvious place for a honeymoon, it being known from tv and movies shouldn't be an issue if someone wanted a to be going away to see skyscrapers on their honeymoon. Anyway, your Europe bias is showing. Most of Asia and elsewhere are not as familiar with NY and that is the big emerging market.

Well
I don;t know about skyscraper in seoul. but onething is sure that
Seoul is only One city in the world harmony with 2 thousand years history/River/mountain.
is there any other global city can climbing by take a subway or big river flow in the middle of city or old heritage ruin came under building feet? only in seoul
P.S a lot of commie block though lol

Hey Bro. I remember You had been to disparage Seoul/Lotte world tower555m in LWT thread. Why disparage NYC?
right Paris is one of best city in the world(even few month ago famous CHINA talent couple making Honeymoon photos in effiel tower.
but Also NYC is amazing that is not just concrete jungle. NYC is symbol of prosperity and World peace keep by USA

Taller but also a lot thinner. The old WTC towers were just massive.

Another thing that makes me say Whaaaattt!!! is that I didn't know that the Sony / AT&T Building was getting bare! Half of its cladding is already gone! The cladding of that building was pretty good, I guess they are just restoring it and they will put the same again or will they put a different one. Converting it into a glass box would be a crime.

The Sony building is getting a condo conversion but will look mostly the same. That's 610 Lexington under construction.
