Also in terms of the height of buildings only moscow, london and frankfurt are comparable.
Sure, this is why the density in Chelsea ( the highest in the whole UK ) is way lower than in Levallois, Courbevoie in Paris suburbs.
Personally, I don't give a shit to know which city is the best, I only think that you have to be fair play and stop giving a bad image of Paris and France.

Thank you.

Don't you prefer netball?
There is fairly small basketball scene in the UK, not as big as Spain and other parts of Europe but London could definitely support an NBA team and i think games would be a regular sell-out.

As you are a Canadian i guess you are a mad hockey fan, which im sure you are aware was started by the British troops based in Nova Scotia during the 19thCentury. They brought bandy and hurling over which has been popular in Ireland and Scotland for centuries. I think an NHL team based at the O2 would be a regular sell-out too, not sure if it will ever happen, i know it is being considered.

Both the NBA and NHL are thinking seriously about London!

Let's be honest, are clearly all the unnecessary hostility and bad for the forum, but without these discussions, the forum would be just boring and unnecessary. It should merely be performed in a fair manner. So please people, remains nice to each other. We are a family.

Just posted this in the N&B forum - Copenhagen is not a city of many scrapers (well zero actually), still not half-bad:

Nice pic, but Copenhagen should better be posted in the Historical Skylines Thread or if the one or two modern midrises are shown, in the European Skylines Thread. Among modern skylines it isn't even the 'Best' in Scandinavia for me..

My Scandinavian Top 10 (incl. Iceland, Greenland):

1. Oslo, Norway (7.1)
2. Malmö, Sweden (6.2)
3. Stockholm, Sweden (6.1)
4. Reykjavik, Iceland (6.0)
5. Stavanger, Norway (5.7)
6. Copenhagen, Denmark (5.6)
7. Gothenburg, Sweden (5.4)
8. Bergen, Norway (5.3)
9. Nuuk, Greenland (5.2)
10. Västeras, Sweden (5.0)

No your missing the point. After the war Europe was crippled. But Britain still had some money in the bank - so to say. Britain and the US helped bring France back onto its own legs. What im saying is that Britain has always been more financially stronger than France. So there is more demand for financial construction in London - thus the skyscraper boom and demand for towers.
