Probably they plan the cbd so its easy to get around through public transport

Moreover american cities CBD are planned back in 20th centuries, hence did not consider wide roads as they didnt expect car population to grow much

The planners definitely have transit in mind when they develop grand new city centres, such as the one in Guangzhou and in other large cities. They look more deliberate than the historic centres given the development happened at around the same time and didn't have time to organically fill in itself.

The skylines of New York and Chicago are easily the worlds first and second best skylines, respectively. Theyre so grand yet so dignified, and they showcase highrise architecture from so many different eras.

New York is spanking the rest of the world right now, except for Shanghai, IMO.

Shanghai has a very nice skyline, but New York is in a league above it.

Though new york can be 1st but definitely not an easy triumph over hk and shanghai


I would still rate chicago as 4th skyline. I would put hk 2nd for its massive density with tall buildings and shanghai for scifi pudong skyline. To some, they might not like NY skyline due to brown apartments and old buildings from mid 20th centuries.


Chicago isnt really wow to me.

Shanghai is a force to be reckoned with! I wish Hong Kong would build again! Let's cover the world! forget all this petty who has the best skyline stuff.
