your just proving my point. im saying that cities like new delhi are more populated because of the urbanization. and because urbanization in the u.s is higher the people dont have to settle in one city that is y new york city doesnt have higher then 9million people. plus my argument about the over population in india still stands

Hi all.

Not interested in getting into a city vs. city ....

That said, any aerials of NYC, whether recent or from early 20th century are fantastic and a testament to just how great the city is.

We aren't due for more vertical steel this week. We only see that every other week and we saw it last week so it won't be until next week that we see the next round of big girders going up.

That said, more pictures of the construction and nice things such as the cladding would definitely help keep this thread focused. Carlos, are you out there some where?

The design is based on a flower that grows in the area's around Dubai. There is way more to it that just the height. I actually quite like it. But back on topic!
