I was born and raised in Chicago and currently live there. I just visited New York for the first time 3 weeks ago and absolutly loved it. Everyone says Chicago is way better in architecture, however, i truly believe NYC doesnt get enough credit. They have so many beautiful buildings. Especially in the financial district. Old and new. So even though i grew up hating NY i freakin love it now.

The final freedom tower design is so much better, I never go my head around Libeskinds design. Only wish it was a bit taller since WTC 2 looks so close to it terms of height now, (discounting the spire.)

that's just how it is between people from top tier cities. i grew up thinking chicago was just 2nd to nyc (cough, it is) with some ugly supertalls. esb > jhc & wtc > sears always came to mind, going all the way back to elementary school. i was probably the only one who took notice at that age, lol. - at this point, i couldn't care less. nyc and chitown both have some serious projects on the board and anything that can step the united states up as a whole is great (******* dubai/hong kong).
