Both HK and NY are getting some fantastic projects as well. In fact HK has some really nice projects happening which I find more interesting than Chicago.

Wanch, I know it seems weird to you that anyone would ever take Chicago over HK, but you've just got to let it go. There's no need to be so defensive. Take a deep breath and relax. Someone would take Chicago over HK, as crazy as that sounds, but life will go on Wanch, life will go on.

It's all good man But hey we all have our choices. What matters for now is that Chicago, HK and NY are the big three

Impossible to get the full skyline in one shot, but you can see the relative size of HK Island's focus

Awesom HK pics!! But I don't really like mountains in a city background. I think it makes the city look smaller and it's like the mountains own the city. I like the city to look like it dominates its surrounding area like NYC and Chicago. The mountains do look nice though.

It's the mountains that makes HK's skyline unique. Well if you hate mountains, how about seeing it in this angle
