Your city's 2nd scraper

What's your city's second tallest skyscraper?
New York's second tallest is the Chrysler Building




So, what's your city's 2nd tallest skyscraper?

I just don't like that building...I don't know why - just doesn't appeal to me.

And it's Central Plaza now, although SOON to be the 2 IFC.

Chicago- Aon. (1136 ft)(the white one)

or John Hancock(1131 ft) comes in a close 3rd only 5 ft away from being the same as Aon building.

But in like 3 years... Trump.

(1362 ft)

I assume you are talking about the Chrysler Building?

If you are, you should be taken outside and shot

How can any self-respecting fan of skyscrapers say that about the Chrysler?! I just can't fathom how anyone could say a bad word about it!

Fair enough though - personal preference I suppose

Here in Louisville it's the National City Tower. Nothin special.
Small beans compared to the Chrysler Bldg ( ) but it does well to build the skyline and is pretty sleek.

The Chrysler is probably one of the oldest second tallest buildings in the world being at 75 years old.

Boston-
Prudential Center-229m/750ft



In a few years time, if Gateway Center is approved, the 2nd tallest will be the John Hancock Tower.
