This American city has to be a close second after NYC in terms of architecture and style. Great pics.

Chicago is great and those pictures are wonderful. It's like Europe in skyscrapers - those talls have so much detail, even more so than New York.

One question though: what's with the Parisian metro entrance? Haha.

Wow, Chicago looks marvellous! Public space is so... elegant. This city has its charm, I think it's even classier than New York. And I love those streets under railways!

Chicago doesn´t need to be jealous of NY.

It´s an incredible city and has a lot of personality.

Hah! I was thinking of commenting about this myself...

For many US cities, 19th century Paris style has always been an irresistible model. This is certainly true for Chicago under the 2nd Mayor Daley...

Although I do think that the Paris-style "metro" entrance is a bit too literal, I certainly don't dislike it. But yes, I do think that a Chicago-style entrance would have been more appropriate... And too slavish a copy is never a good thing, no matter how wonderful the model... It hints of a lack of imagination.
