And I hate the recladding of this hotel in Warsaw.




But I must admit, I liked the city and most of the skyscrapers a lot!

The Hearst Building, New Downtown Transit Hub, and Time Warner Center are all great buildings. Especially the transit hub.

I think that list is crap.

I didn't make that list, WNCY did, but you can comment on why you think they are wrong.
