Gosh, the Hamiltons were irascible people, short-tempered. They have short lives too as a result.

New York

The first photo is quintessential NYC, I think. Also note 432 Park Avenue rising in the background, growing like a weed.

Lots of density, but not the nicest of buildings in that frame.

Very monotonous, and people bad-mouth Miami so.

I am not really bothered by the brown buildings in New York. If you say that it doesnt fit with the newer buildings than the new buildings dont fit because theyre new.

No one said that the mix of old historical buildings and modern glassy ones isn't good or responsible of this brownish thing .

Bangkok really is massive. It must give the feeling of endless city at street level, but from a skyline pov it's so spread out that it doesn't seem to have a focal point.

Toronto CBD taken from the east. GO Train regional rail (green/white) and VIA National rail (blue/silver) in the foreground.

I just posted it.. but it isn't Manila..

That IS BANGKOK!! haha


If you are curious how spread Manila is.. here it is But it only covers 3 CBDs Makati, Ortigas and Bonifacio-Taguig
Manila CBD and Quezon is not included in the pic
I find it less spread than the usual Asian skyline..

I think thats Bangkok not Manila as u can see that the skyline are huge and unlike in Manila whereby they have several CBDs. On the right hand side of the pic, we also can see the Baiyoke tower as tallest tower in bkk. So its not Manila


this is manila
