I didn`t start this off-topic discussion but I am really getting sick
of the americans and british dudes that always say NYC is the best
city in the world and London comes 2nd closely.
I have been many times in these cities but also in many cities of south
america, europe, asia, africa and north america and I know there are
more beautiful places with more culture and better surroundings than these
cities.

Just one area of difference, London's skyline is not much to look at compared to a city like NYC.

There are a number of worthy contenders for the world city title; but only NYC is in top 3 in every conceivable category of measurement. Although in the future, I can see conceivably a city like Shanghai or even Dubai overtaking, but that's going to take quite some time for them to catch up in all the different areas.

The whole world knows that New York is the largest city in the world. Moreover, it is located within the United States, which is the largest enconomia the world (yet).

Anyway, please. If who is here to "criticize" New York, give your opinion somewhere else.
I ask what your problem was and you attack me. I come to SSC to see 1WTC get built. I'm not here to talk about, why my city is the greatest.

And Yankee Fan don't worry all is forgiving.


Ps. it might start a fight if, I keep hearing NYC has no culture. Now that some grade A'd bullshit.

From this time-lapse construction animation thing, it would seem to be at least sometime late next fall.

Hi all.

Many here need to go to Amazon and order the book "Gotham" - 'nuff said.

As for the BK haters .... wrong thread for your uninformed opinions.

Hi STR.
Yet another fantastic render.
Why do you mostly post at the 'other' forum ?


Ray.

Is that a new rendering? I ask because 3 WTC has more spires than usual.
