He's just blinded by his own opinion. Of course people all over the world know the Chrysler Building, far much more so that the Burj, simply by virtue of having been around far far longer.

I don't think there is even much grass in Dubai, and I think they've pretty much destroyed anything which could be called 'traditional'.

BK for me, wasn't really a hard choice as I'm not a fan of Chrysler, but I can understand why others voted for it. Still, I'd be pretty upset if BK lost to Chrysler..

its about the building not location.
and even then the location of the Chrysler is IMO better, NY has at least urbanity and density, and yes more class instead of kitsch like dubai. and stop whining like a dubai-lover.

Yeah NYC is Gotham. There hardly any traffic. There's no smoking in public areas. And the street are never crowded because people have place to go.

I don't have any problem with Dubai.

Both towers are in right location, the Chrysler in the dessert would be completely out of place. And the Burj needs some space to really stand out.

This is also why I like the location aspect of the Chrysler building better, it got that special something that makes it stand out in the urban jungle. It doesn't need to stand on it's own to shine.
