Nothing compared to the other cities on this thread, but I quite like my hometown's skyline.

The Chicago skyline is small comments are laughable

So much hate (jealousy?) on this board for Chicago. Wow.

A couple of points:

1. CHICAGO INVENTED THE SKYSCRAPER. We built the very first one in history.

2. Historically, according to many accounts, Chicago was America's FIRST skyscraper city and was the very first skyscraper city in the world. No knock on NY... just pointing out what some/many historical facts say. So Chicago is not trying to be like any other city. If anything (no disrespect to those other cities), it can be argued, that those cities are trying to be like us -- since we were first.

3. Chicago is Tall. Period. Chicago has 7 supertalls with 1 supertall under contruction (makes 8) and 2 others that should start drilling next year. Plus a series of 900 footers and plenty of 800 footers.

4. Chicago has well over 1,000 skyscrapers (some estimates/more than 1,500) - not NY but far from small. That comment makes me chuckle it is so funny.

5. Any comparisons to Houston or any other city in America other than NY are laughable But no, we are not NY and do not want to be NY. We like Chicago just the way it is. Big, tall, dense and super clean. NY is the only comparison because both Chicago and NY are historical cities that are high in density. But other than that, NY is obviously bigger.

A couple of side points/facts:

6. Chicago has subways and elevated trains that run through its downtown - NY buried all its trains. No knock on NY but just pointing out a difference.

7. Chicago has a system of alleys... that is where our trash goes... those alleys prevent garbage from being put out on the street or in front of our homes or businesses and helps keep Chicago clean.

8. Chicago has natural beaches that surround its downtown. Something very few skyscraper cities in the world can match.

9. Chicago has a river running through its downtown with skyscrapers on both sides of that river -- affectionately called a "River Canyon". Again, something very distinctive for our city.


.......... Chicago, in sum, is about history, height, density and beauty. Unlike any other city in the world. NY is NY - a great city - a beast! Unlike any other city in the world as well. There are many great cities in the world - all very distinctive in their own right. Chicago is just happy to be Chicago. Not the biggest but distinctly Chicago!

I want to add that Chicago downtown area is quite huge but when taking picture it appears small due to distance the photographer is taking picture at. the other thing about Chicago is that it feels as One big city, not like NY that is mainly Manhattan AND other parts, just by crossing Brooklyn bridge you will have the feel of leaving NY. NY feels many cities in one city, while Chicago feels one big city.

Good post. Chicago is also very deceptive in that its tall buildings are really tall (Willis has tallest occupied "roof height" in America) and really big (Willis has the largest "square footage" of all skyscrapers)... same for the AON Center building (roof height = tall/square footage = big) and other skyscrapers in Chicago, so that our skyline tends to dwarf buildings that would normally stand out in other cities. For instance, our 700 and 800 footers look small in our skyline.

All of this can lead to a very deceptive look in pictures.... until you actually visit the place and get a true appreciation for the "scale" of Chicago. You can't get that in pictures.
