I (as well as many others) would rather live in a lively, progressive city like New York than a giant museum (which is what most European cities are). And Im from New York so your previous comment was rather meaningless. And I honestly dont have any problems with European cities. I have problems with Eurocentric forumers who lie about European cities being the best in the world.

...Take a look at all the asian and American cities and tell me they have not copied all the best things from European cities !!!...no, I'm not talking about skyscrapers, but everything else, If you visited a Asian city 50 years ago, it would look typically asian in architecture and culture, but today most asian cities look western....and just as important, they wan't to look and be more western, when it comes to all the different aspects of European living...so I guess some European forumers are not that wrong, if they think European cities are the best in the World

When it comes to USA cities vs. European cities, I really think they are basicly the same thing. Every time i visit USA it feels like home...it's basicly the same culture and way of living as in Europe...we get the best from them and they get the best from us USA was build by people from Europe and as I see it, we are all western brothers and sisters ...and ohh, I think I should mention, that I think New York is the best city in the World...so there you go

And last but not least: There is absolutely nothing wrong with Europeans being proud of our cities and thinking they are the best in the world. I'm proud to be European and think this is the best place on earth, but that doesn't mean, I can't love cities in other parts of the world, like New York, Sydney, Cairo, Buenos Aires or Tokyo...I love'em all

Only the biggest two, London and Moscow, that's it.

There is a large gap between skyscraper made in Europe and skyscraper made in Asia ... like difference between light and darkness

But, Moscow is very close to Singapore and someother Asian skylines.
If the boom persists, the city is able to surpass Singapore.

Singapore looks quite dull and got no supertall. even Frankfurt looks more fascinating imo.
