The New York City and Chicago appreciation thread

No long headers for this one. Some of you guys already know how I feel about the two places. The purpose of this thread is to pay homage to the two pioneering skyscraper cities. The idea of versus is not intended and won't be tolerated. So if you love Chicago and New York and the architecture, skylines and classic North American urban atmosphere both have then come in and discuss, post pictures, ask us questions

If anyone has the link to the older NY and Chicago threads pass them along to me...maybe we can merge them.

For a while I have been saving photos from various threads on the forum of both citys. I usually use them to post in other threads and other sections but they're also perfect for this one. There are a few that are out-dated as well as other that are not exactly skyline shots but along the lines of this thread. *Please note that if a photo is not credited it is not mine nor do I know who took it.*[/B]

Awesome. Just awesome. I hope the asshats that will inevitably come in here will keep their damn mouths shut and appreciate two great cities.

Best thread ever, Nygirl.

This is an incredible compilation of photos. You've got my personal applause

Very nice collection, NYGirl.

Perhaps later, I'll try to contribute some comparison pictures of individual buildings -- as some of us had done several years ago (that was quite fun, actually.)
