What happened to you man? Do you have a NY trauma or something? If so, I think you need professional help.

Btw prepare yourself for my 30+ pics post ... all from NY of course. Maybe I'll send you some NY pics per PM. You better get your medication ready.

That made me laugh HK. Good to have you back. I'll get some more NY started.

And Generic, if you're sick of NY, why don't you contribute instead of complaining like a child? It's not hard to do...

desert, great photo of San Fran. With Trans Bay it'll probably be my favorite CA skyline.

Anyway, love this view of Southern Midtown, really shows the wall that Midtown creates. Related's first Hudson Yards South Tower at 1,017 feet will across the street from the black/brown building with the slanted walls in the lower part of the photo. On the lower left you can also see a few cranes, that's where the new 7 Train station will open in 20 months or so, and then Extell's One Hudson Yards, and the Girasole will rise basically right on top of it.

That's how New Yorkers are: boastful, headstrong, and in love with their city, for good reason. It might be the greatest city to visit in the world. Never mind that the cost of living is ridiculous. New Yorkers pay a good three or four times as much for the exact same living space as in Chicago.

Chicago

This is a less-seen angle showing how impressive the South Loop has gotten.

Amazing pic, but you might want to put the source.

I love how the American Museum of Natural History and the Met Museum of Art are facing off right across Central Park.

The height of Chicago always impresses me. 1 Museum Park is a 230 meter tower, yet the massive height of the skyline makes it look small.

@ Desert Punk

WOW




@ Dralcoffin

Such a gorgeous picture, does the Navy Pier do fireworks on a monthly basis, or just on the 4th ?

It's a repost from Gothamist.
