Hong Kong-It's just so new, bright and modern. New York has 2 flaws- the first is too many old, dirty buildings and it is too crammed in. New York can build a stunning tower in Midtown and you'd barely be able to see it unless of course it shot up 300 feet above everything else. New York's problem lies in its building density- it's just too crammed and you can't get a good shot of the entire skyline. Besides, New York is centuries old, Hong Kong started getting developed in the last 30-40 years. It's barely a fair fight.
With all that said-wait 25 years when the old crappy buildings in Manhattan start getting demolished for new, advanced and beautiful skyscrapers..then it will be a fair fight. Maybe even that huge gap betwen Midtown and Downtown will start getting filled in and skyscraper developments in Brooklyn and Queens will get underway within the century.
As a future architect, I have some incredible designs to help rejuvenate New York's aging skyline..look forward to it.

i think some of the forumers here are below 20's. their posting is soo childish. ever since the very first thread on this 'discussion' they keep coming...

if you really really really have 'fetish' for ur hometown/capital city, dont be too emotional when posting. and plz...post 1 picture for 1 time only, and do not post the same pictures 10x. gross!!

Start spreading the news, I'm leaving today
I want to be a part of it - New York, New York
These vagabond shoes, are longing to stray
Right through the very heart of it - New York, New York

I wanna wake up in a city that doesn't sleep
And find I'm king of the hill - top of the heap

These little town blues, are melting away
I'll make a brand new start of it - in old New York
If i can make it there, I'll make it anywhere
It's up to you - New York, New York

New York, New York
I want to wake up in a city that never sleeps
And find I'm a number one, top of the list
King of the hill, a number one

These little town blues, are melting away
And I'm gonna make a brand new start of it - in old New York
And if i can make it there, I'm gonna make it anywhere

It's up to you - New York New York

New York


---------------------------------------------------

whenever i think about NY, this classic song comes into my mind...

NY and HK is the only cities in the world where its skyline is their soul...

others such as Dubai is just 'plastic'. built for self smugging...pride of nothing...

Very nice buildings those - reminds me a bit of The Cullinan Towers, or of the one in Kowloon Bay, but taller and better still.

Why about jakarta?? i think it's deserved the title... Bangkok, Jakarta, and Manila are almost similar...

Just like Shanghai always want to be called the best... NYC and HK are, but Shanghai?? Wanna hear that statement??
