Do you think she could even pick one up? Maybe she would get so mad at someone that she would throw her T-Mobile Sidekick out the window. Or maybe she'll trip and smash through the window...But I don't think we have to worry about that because she would probably never move to Chicago. How is she going to be the center of attention there? There's not enough Paparazzi. Plus, then she can't wear those skirts as full dresses and her Jimmy Choos all year round. She might have to cover herself up.

What I'm a New Yorker by birth but I was raise in the Mid West. I'm not a fan of this building because, I'm just not and that's my right. Only a fool would point out something that isn't there. Plus even if it was in new york I still wouldn't like. Anyway we don't mike it a point to build skyscrapers in the shapes of a ***** lol. But I can also careless what you think.

Yeah I'm a jackass I said it looks like a ***** just for his remarks toward me. I don't really think it looks like that. It's a good look building but what else does it have other then high and a twist to the ground. Give me more to look forward to, chicago seems to be the home town of ugly ass supertalls. But you might think I'm just hating and thats your right.

P.s I'm not saying this tower is ugly, I'm just saying some of the city other supertalls are.

A. Those aren't trailers
B. Those aren't roofs

They are roof top decks and the "trailers" are access points to them

Chicago invented skyscrapers and New Yorkers just can't seem to get over it. Frankly, I prefer the Chicago skyline over New York's because it is a little more civilized spread along Lake Michigan the way it is. I'm proud to say that our Mayor is viewing Chicago as a model for the city he wants Miami to be, and I am proud to say that Miami aspires to be the Chicago of the South. We are little ways away, but we are getting there.

Dude we had building over 100 and 200 feet when chicago was still farm land. The word skyscraper might have been coined in chicago but tall buildings weren't invinted there foo. Check you damn timeline NYC was Building taller the 100 feet before chicago had one that was 50. And let not forget your beloved chi town didn't have a supertall till the 1960's and NY has been building them since the 1930's, so who the granddad of tall azz building oh wait that would be New york.

I don't need to "check you damn timeline." All the literature says that Chicago is the birthplace of the skyscraper. There is simply no argument about it! There is no scholarly debate here. What you are stating is what you want to be based on your own opinion, and there is simply no time to argue with you about how much you want to make your opinion fact.

Well, among a myriad of websites that call Chicago the birthplace of the skyscraper, I did manage to find one that called lower Manhattan the birthplace of the skyscraper. That was the Skyscraper Museum in lower Manhattan, though I was not able to ascertain why they call it the birthplace of the skyscraper other than it being another case of someone passing off their opinion as fact.

Anyway, getting back on the topic, I can hardly wait for the Chicago Spire to top out so that I can go to Chicago and see it. At this point, I may never go to New York again, even after the Freedom Tower is completed.
