Is the NY building with the H&M logo actually a condo?

No, it's Four Times Square, also known as the Condé Nast Building, a commercial office building. (I have no idea why the H&M logo is there.)

Some skylines are handsome while others are pretty. I would rate Chicago, San Francisco and Sydney as such on the prettiness scale. Handsome? NYC, Hong Kong and Shanghai.

Dubai like NYC is high on both index. Handsomeness and Prettiness.

I would rate Hong Kong high on both -- handsome and pretty. I would also rank Chicago high on both -- hard to be too pretty with 2 black bookend supertall towers framing the skyline. Also, once inside Chicago, it has a distinctive Gothic feel to the place. Thats why it is often used as Gotham City in the Batman and other superhero movies. Goth and pretty don't really go together

But I get what he is saying though.... the water, surrounding beach and symmetry of the skyline makes for a pretty look to Chicago. On that we can agree

I actually think Chicago is very pretty and not at all like Gotham City when viewed from the east or south.

I think this photo proves my point.

Anyone who would say that New York's skyline is the best hasn't been on Earth for the last couple of years. Or maybe they were locked in a soundproof room with no television reception.
