Don't like Petronas so that's an easy and quick battle

Well besides Chrysler having the merit of having its own fanclub, I guess it also benefits from the Sears tower fanclub

But still, as much as I recognize the beauty of the Petronas and the ingenious design by Pelli, I somehow cannot compare it to the Chrysler, whose history is enough to propulse it amongst the all time greatest structures in the world, and to me, ahead of the ESB

You can't put the Chrysler Building in contests with other skyscrapers because there is no contest; it's the most beautiful skyscraper on earth and nothing, nowhere could ever best it.

Petronas looks fantastic at night.

Chrysler wins this though.

I voted Chrysler, Petronas looks great but the former has style, history and for a tower built so long ago it's amazing it still 'holds its own' even to this day.

wow. Don't get me wrong, I love the petronas towers...
but the Chrysler building, even 77 years later, OWNS.
its silhouette is legendary.

Old vs new here. Old wins. But I have to say I admire both. Perhaps this could be the final of the skyscraper's battle's.? Crysler is simply...amazing. As someone said above: no one will ever top it!
