London is great, but don't overestimate it. Do you have any examples of buildings that old?

"right next to churches and buildings which are more than 2000 years old" = fragment from an old wall less than 2000 years old

Its not the wall, its just ruins - you can find plenty of even older things all over the world. That statue is new, St Paul's Cathedral was built in 1675-1720. Oldest buildings I have found info about (Wikipedia) - Tower of London - 1078 (White Tower), Westminster Abbey (current building started in 1245), Banqueting House, Whitehall (1619). Nothing special by some European cities measure - see Arco di Tito in Rome, 81 year A.D.:

source


Again, London is really great, but, please, "older than 2000 years"?

Luckily not, and never will be. It's just perfect as it is. In Neaples there are greek ruins from 28 centuries ago, and modern skyscrapers nearly. In Milan, former imperial capital of western roman empire, we have 26 centuries of history, roman columns and ruins and many of the world's most important paleochristian basilicas from roman era, and you walk a km and you're in Porta Nuova district. Instanbul has huge skyscrapers some km away from the archeological park of roman era too. Of course there are sign of times in London too, but still...

Does it really matter if a city has 2800 year old buildings or 2000 year old buildings? In respect to London it has changed beyond recognition compared to other cities through construction, fires and wars. Whatever anyone says about London someone argues because it's a way for them to put it down. When this happens. Take it on the chin first, then as a compliment that they feel the need too.

For what's it's worth human187 London had many historical sites some as old as 6000 years. They may not be prime habitable sites but they are certainly there.

And other cities haven't?

I can name dozens of cities that are just as dynamic as London. For once can we please cut the exceptionalism bullshit?
