Above that it seems they are building high-rises and skyscrapers randomly in the city.
It's nonsensical that a low rise city gave you the endless city feeling, which is gone with skyscrapers.

I think high-rises are adding to Istanbul's charm, giving it a more dynamic feeling (which it is), rather than a boring and stagnant open air museum. Also because of its geography (Bosphorus etc), the skyline looks unique.

A couple?? I'm sure you're drunk as the same moment that you've said:

These low rises look astonishing. We should have some of these in Izmir.

I know you really believe that milan is as close as Manhattan as it gets, but there is no need to offend me and perhaps you should consider how to respect one another. Just saying.

And factory could be a wrong term because it could be hugely misinterpreted by people like you, industrial might be a better word for it.

And final, no im not drunk, when i state the simple fact that there are only 4 or 5 real highrises in milan, compared to others in Europe where we talk about dozens. Milan isn't in the big leauge in Europe, sorry to wake you up out of your dreams

I don't understand why people talk very harshly to one another. Europe is our homeland and I personally want nothing but well beings of all European countries and its people. There is no point to be mean to each other for the sake of bricks and concrete.

Btw I don't think Thomas thinks Milan is in the top 5. He is just proud of the progress his city has been making and he wants to show us. Just like the Brits, Turks, Poles etc.

Have a great Sunday y'all.

I don't want to offend you, I was just joking.

BTW, I don't think that Milan is Manhattan. Speaking about other cities, London or Frankfurt are not something similar to the Big Apple in terms of density, but I don't care. I like London and Frakfurt anyway.

Once again, I'm not able to understand. Why Il Dritto is "industrial"??? Maybe you should explain us, trying to argomentate your idea.

This thread is dedicated to the skylines from all over Europe. Otherwise we could rename the thread in "European skylines with more than 100 skyscrapers".

For Warsaw a lot of its towers have been left out of the diagram.
