After so many debates here in SSC for so many years people are still quoting Emporis as a trusted source? Quite unbelievable. However, I must commend them for making the effort for gathering data.

I wouldn't go that far. The reader should consult various resources, including media, for information. They are supposed to seek the truth after all.

Should we put a lot of doubt on factual reporting like quoting a government GDP report?

The problem lies when people don't know what credible media is available out there or blindly believe what's put to their eyes.

Yeah, it gives you an idea of how extensive it is lengthwise. You have to be pretty far out into Lake Michigan to get that kind of perspective. Of course, a line of highrises continues along the lakefront for many miles north, off to the left of Chicagophotoshop's picture.

And old photo from far out in Lake Michigan:

I think geography wise Chongquing does not resemble New York other than it is a narrow strip of land between 2 rivers (or one?). New York, while it may appear a narrow strip of land is 12 large avenues wide. 2 miles from the East River to the Hudson River.

There are the palisades but other than that there are no high mountains in New York as there are in Chongquing.

I think the architecture couldn't be the furtherst from New York, even though there is a chrysler knock-off.

They don't have the street grid.

The southern tip of Manhattan does not bend in any way.
The tip of Chongquing is more similar to another US city: Pittsburgh

Far fewer prominent bridges.

Manhattan is an Island, Chongquing is a peninsula? What is Chongquing actually?

Manhattan has a centralized park.

So if you still think Chongquing looks alot like New York then take a look at this series that I've produced which goes deeper than a skyline picture.

These are all the neighborhoods, detailed, of Manhattan. How many similarities can you now find between the two cities.

Just wanted to put the proof up. It's calm down, not come down.

It's not an insult to me if someone says some city looks like ny but Chongquing doesn't and I just wanted to point out why it doesn't when others says it does. I'm not narrow minded. Narrow Minded is thinking Chongquing is like Manhattan since there are buildings on a strip of land between two rivers.
