Woolworth Building VS the World Financial center

I was thinking, since there is a one on one option on skyscraper city, why not do a building vs building thread, just to compare apples to oranges. Its not offending anyone like city VS city.

The Woolworth Building, the World's Tallest building holder for 17 years and an unreproducible neo-gothic gem. Shame it's been hidden from many angles it was once visible.

The WFC is literally overshadowed by the WTC. It doesn't draw the eye to it.

This is quite a strange comparison. Woolworth is one of the top 5 in New York. WFC? Just an overshadowed complex lacking life. Not even close...

Woolworth, by far

Neo gothic versus bland postmodernism you can find anywhere?

The only good thing about Post Modern buildings is that they look the best at night. Think about the Twins. They looked so pretty at night.

The twins were nowhere near postmodernist. But I will agree that the WFC looks good at night.

Modern/ Post Modern. The lights of the buildings at night is the point I am trying to make. Both styles look so amazing at night.
