I moved to Vancouver for 4 years. Although the scenery is spectacular and the rhododendrons amazing, what I gained was a whole new level of love and appreciation for Toronto. But it was worth spending a few years there just for the change.

2 booming skylines outside Manhattan, photos by Josh Churba

Brooklyn, NYC - things are just now settling down (several tall high rises are finishing up, round 2 will come soon including a supertall at 9 DeKalb)


_Y2A9661 by Josh Churba, on Flickr

Long Island City, NYC - currently ablaze with midrise and highrise development. Unfortunately this angle blocks the second tallest building which was topped off last month. No supertalls planned yet, but two 900+ footers will be built in the near future.

The friends that know me best echo those sentiments. They all say go, but it's not far enough along in its development to keep me there. I'm most comfortable in a big city and even find Toronto too small. When metro Vancouver hits 6-7 million it may be hard to beat. I might be dead by then though.

The glacial pace of daily life there is quite accommodating for the dead. I've thought I might move back after I have passed on. Beautiful city to go to for a great vacation for the living though.
