And this is called word-slaughtering effect. What did the word skylinish do to you to chop it into pieces with an apostrophe?

None of us gets his comments throughout the thread. You have to read them in context. What he always tries to say is: "Europe is as poor as shit when it comes to skylines. They have no style, no height and that's why this thread is superfluous because it is about something non-existing: Skylines in Europe." I think this is more or less what he wants to tell us. This must be some kind of complex he has!

just curious to know

edit: ahwww just saw your sidenote about the ish'ish, your eager to learn is laudable
so ish is an urban slang and there is no grammar rule for the usage of marks or apostrophes in this context, and it means "kind/kind of".

you're welcome.

Warsaw was supposed to look like that in 5 years. Now we can't be sure about any of these talls due to economic crisis

The need for Poland is still there but delayed. I am sure they will all be built but later. So you have to have more patience!

Paris Tops Ranking in Global City Image Study; GfK Roper Public Affairs & Media and Simon Anholt Release 2009 City Brands Index(SM)

June 16, 2009

NEW YORK, June 16 /PRNewswire/ -- GfK Roper Public Affairs & Media, a division of GfK Custom Research North America, today announced highlights from the 2009 Anholt-GfK Roper City Brands Index(SM) (CBI) report, which captures consumer perception of the image and reputation of 50 major cities worldwide.

Paris ranks as the top overall city "brand," followed by Sydney, London, Rome and New York. The top 10 cities from the global survey are:

2009 Anholt-GfK Roper City
Brands Index(SM) Ranking
(Top 10 of 50 Cities)

1. Paris
2. Sydney
3. London
4. Rome
5. New York
6. Barcelona
7. San Francisco
8. Los Angeles
9. Vienna
10. Madrid
"The index measures the world's perception of each city, which influences people's choices on where to live, work and vacation," says Simon Anholt, CBI founder. "Particularly in the face of today's uncertain economic climate, it's vital to understand the forces and opinions that drive business towards and away from these cities."

..............

The index measures the image of 50 cities with respect to Presence, Place, Pre- requisite, People, Pulse and Potential. Each year, a total of 10,000 adults ages 18 and up are interviewed in 20 core countries.


The birth of a new skyline in Paris (Issy les Moulineaux). The new Microsoft EMEA (Europe, Middle-East & Africa) Headquarters and also Coca-Cola European headquarter, for example, are in this district :
