Thanks God, London doesn't need to be like NYC, because the city is already great with its style. London is London.

It'll never be as great as Chongqing either going by that metric.

Very pleasing to walk around, as new streets are being opened up.

New York needs more history, it will never be as good as London.


There, I've lowered myself into the gutter responding to an obvious spotty 13yr old troll.

At least I hope he's an immature child, because I'd hate to think a grown adult posted it.

It makes me laugh to see how many people on this forum actually think that the importance of a city is somehow measured by the amount of skyscrapers it has. Get real, people, London may not have a huge amount of skyscrapers, but it definitely beats any of those Chinese or Arab instant-cities in terms of culture and significance, no matter how tall their skyscrapers are.

P.S. I hope Strykr was just trolling.

I kind of like London. But being on this forum does not help me to love the city. Hearing every one here, London is the best place of the universe, and apparently it's even more the case since the city builds skyscrapers. The least we can expect from a major city... London has it's strength but when it comes to urban feeling, the city is not New York, Paris, Tokyo. And that's not related to skyscrapers. London is spread all over with many many districts with low interest with 2 stories ugly endless blocks. Lately, the feeling is that London is trying to catch up a bit and brings more diversity.. When it comes to quality, the individual buildings are very good, but from ground level, you don't feel the quality, it's not well organised like in NY, and like NY, the streets and some buidlings are dirty, the pavement, sidewalks are damaged most the time. Even if there is a dog poop in Paris once in a while, I think generally Paris is cleaner (due to good public services) and have good quality modern buildings (not worth mentionning the quality of old buildings). Paris is very dense too, blocks are more 7/8 stories in average on 100 sq km so you feel the urbanity. But for both London and Paris, New York can never be reached. And this has nothing to do specifically with skyscrapers, it's the thing you can feel when you walk hundreds of kms in these cities. So, to paraphrase Strykr "London will never be as great as NY." But not because of the skyscrapers

I personally think, this... em... size competition was like 1980s. Asia now try to catch up, for it hasn't the same those times. But EU and US... Come on, that's not serious.

UPD: I just love the spirit of London) Even if I've been living only in Walthamstow and had to get 20 min on the tube to get to Embankment)

This is a pointless argument. You're comparing apples with oranges.

The truth is that while you are quite right to say that London will never be as great as New York, it is equally true to say that New York will never be as great as London.

You come on here criticising the forumers about boasting about this city and then you go on to slating it, to then boasting about Paris etc. Oh the irony lol.

And talking about cleanliness and Paris in the same sentence? I'm from neither city but Paris is an absolute dirt hole.

Paris is cleaner than London? Made me laugh really. Better public service really? None of cities in Europe has something like DRL going through Canary Wharf, this is only Tokyo can offer but Tokyo has many other downsides (even still I love that city to bits). Actually I have spent all day with Japanese friend from Tokyo today and he is very well travelled. He said that London is really greatest place he even been and he wishes he could spent few years here. May be politeness of course but I don't think so.
