Most of American cities are in chaos, so it's a hard choice.

Those have some great potential
1st New York
2nd Chicago
3rd San Francisco

I've always liked this view since it shows Midtown's profile so distinctly. It'll be even more dramatic with 1 Vandy, TV, and the other HY towers.

I don't think the FAA is anaal enough to approve 967' but not 984', especially considering that 1,111' to 984' shows that the developer listened to their concerns. We'll see. Fingers crossed.

Was nice to see Cleveland and Tampa; two cities we don't see enough of here!
