My latest rankings:

=1. Hong Kong - 9.5 (main detraction: no gorgeous pre-war buildings)
=1. Chicago - 9.5 (main detraction: cuts off pretty sharply to the south and west)
3. New York - 9.25 (main detraction: "clumps" versus a continuous line, overexposure)
4. Shanghai - 9

Not bad of Guangzhou, but why is it the third largest?
by porpulation?
by area?
by economy?

1. Chicago - 9.89
2. New York -9.8
3. Hong Kong - 9.5
4. Shanghai - 9.3

Chicago has incredible architecture. it has the best modern architecture,and the city at night is unbelievably beautiful, the cities skyline is almost 4 milles wide, so its huge. The skyline includes the Sears tower, and the trump tower also which are two of my favorite buildings. NYC is also great, my main problem with it is that there are a lot of ugly buildings between all the beautiful ones. But it still gets a 9.8 in my book, because its a beautiful city.

Here are some awesome pics. (they aren't mine)









An awesome NYC picture

Freaking Awesome hong kong picture
