I find Chicago with no personality, as a city who was built looking at New York.

Actually, many people find the Chicago skyline more aesthetically-appealing than the New York skyline.

Personally I think Chicago's skyline is much more pleasing to the eye then NYC. IDK why but NYC's skyscrapers are way to spread out!!!!!! The distance from Empire to 1WTC is kind of far for me. Also you can see most of chicago's skyscrapers anywhere while you have to get to a side to see NYC's skyline.

It's your opinion, but you should really take a look in some architectural books before say something like that. I'm thinking about the Tribune Tower or the Carbide And Carbon Building, Lake Point or even Marina City. Seriously, no personality?

QuantumX: I can see your hotel in the photo below. If you can see the white half dome at the top left, your hotel is that light brown building above it and a touch to the right.

Yes, I think I see it because I looked it up on the internet.

You can see the New York skyline even from Connecticut. And the gap between Dowtown and ESB is closing.

Best is subjective as we've always maintained, but it could well be the world's largest, if we could ever get all of its tall buildings counted.
