He's talking about Chicago having the first steel framed highrise, which prompts some people to call it the birthplace of the skyscraper.

Ah! Thanks! I personally think of Chicago as being the birthplace of the modern "skyscraper", because the Bauhaus School moved from Germany there during WW2 and created the International Style look which we see in so many buildings to this day. Such greats as Mies van der Rohe changed the way tall buildings were built. Yes there were "skyscrapers" long before that (like the Empire State Building), but they did not look the same as the modern skyscraper.

Reposting today's banner here since I think Chicago's gritty industrial heritage is a key part of its identity. And rail yards just look cool.

I think it would be difficult to really accurately compare. According to some random figures I looked up online, a number of eastern North American cities seem have densities between 4100-4400 per km² --Toronto, Montreal, Philadelphia, Chicago; all similar to Warsaw or Naples. New York is the densest in North America at 10194 per km². Berlin comes in at 3750 per km², London at 5100 per km², and Paris at 3550 per km². I know it is a matter of personal civic pride for people as to the density figures of their own city so I hope we don't get derailed too far into that area, bearing in mind this is a skyline photo thread!
Again, I'm sure you can find a myriad of different figures as people select certain parts of a city to inflate or deflate the numbers, but I just did a quick internet search for these numbers. I don't put a great deal of store into them because they are probably comparing apples to oranges.

Thank you for the reply.I thought London and especially Paris would be higher, but not surprised about New York.It's true this a skyline thread, and a cool one at that, so don't wish to distract from that.

Great pic of Cincinnati. I've only seen it from the perspective across the river.

I do think duoc lieu xanh Calgary's skyline has caught up with Vancouver's, but I wouldn't count Vancouver out vnras. I bet we'll see a few 250 m+ buildings in Vancouver in the next few years. email ảo

On one hand, the downturn in oil and gas might slow Calgary's development, giving Vancouver a chance to catch up. On the other hand, the slowdown in the Chinese economy and Vancouver's stricter rules on foreign ownership might stymie its own development. I agree that Calgary is as good as Vancouver right now though.
