Wow ... Seeing them all together in this thread makes me realise just how fantastic they really are ... but I'd have to choose Chrysler.

hell yeah, Metlife beat Conde Nast in the rankings!
anyway, even though on my list Chrysler was in it instead of Citicorp, here I'll vote for Citicorp, I'm actually wondering what Chrysler was doing in the list

Hard to decide. I like ESB cause it's so tall and was build in such short period of time during the depression, but for architectureal beauty, i have to pick WoolWorth, the tallest building in the world in 1913.

40 Wall and Woolworth easily go down... Citicorp involved more thought. The ESB and Chrysler were tough, but I went with Chrysler...

I have to agree. These buildings are all great, but the Chrysler is the best IMO.

oh no you didn't just made one of the hardest poll ever did you

i vote Empire State Building because you asked for the Best Skyscraper.
taking into account when ,where and how fast it was build i nominate Empire state.
I'd vote for chrysler if we would vote most beautifull altough woolworth & co. wouldn't be far behind.
To quote donald trump : This is a Tough one !
