I Love Chicago Instagram


This photo is a little old but it is still a nice photo of the University of Chicago -- on average ranked as one of top 5 universities in the US. This is the place where Barack Obama used to teach and it is also the place of the first nuclear chain reaction http://www.uchicago.edu/features/how...anged_science/

It is also my mother's alma mater so it holds a bit of a special place in my heart :-)

Chicago:
Fireworks from Adler by BlindFaithPhoto ., on Flickr

I really like the wide angle in this photo. You still can't see the whole skyline (that should be almost impossible), but it's about as close as you can get.

Also, does anyone know what's with all the fireworks? Is it for Flag Day, perhaps?

I think SF is in the top 15 and I wouldn't put Toronto in the top 12.

Love SF skyline and everytime when I was in its dt core I always have a feeling walking in a concrete jungle surrounded by the tall buildings, I have no such feeling in other big north american cities beside NY and Chicago.

I can live with this list. I had Hong Kong #1 with NY #2 but I can easily flip that. I give HK the edge as far as setting and NY the edge as far density and history. That said, I can see NY in the #1 spot. Either way, NY is right there at 1 or 2.

The rest of this list is about right on point. As I have previously written, Dubai is definitely NOT in my top 5 - too contrived, not organic enough. Shanhai and Toronto are about right where they should be as well. In total, I like this list.
