The tallest building I've seen is the CN tower (from a plane) , the tallest skyscraper is the ESB, and the tallest tower I've seen from the ground is Eiffel.

The tallest building I've seen, and been to the top of, was the Empire State Building on November 9th, 2001.

As many times as I've passed near Chicago on I-80, I've never traveled into the city to check out Sears.

He he he. Well, I should work there for 11 months, but I have never felt sooo strange and abroad as in Shanghai, so I came back after 9 days! It is surely the most impressive city I have ever visited, in terms of skyscrapers. But visiting and living are two different things. But one day I will go there and visit it again, without panicking (;-) ). Perhaps next year...
