CHICAGO...round 2

For a while I have been saving photos from various threads on the forum of both citys. I usually use them to post in other threads and other sections but they're also perfect for this one. There are a few that are out-dated as well as other that are not exactly skyline shots but along the lines of this thread. *Please note that if a photo is not credited it is not mine nor do I know who took it.*

I gotta go with chicago, although at night, nyc is the one. the chicago skyline has life and color and as someone stated...dynamics. For the overall scheme, Nyc is just so brown and dreary looking

There used to be these great threads a couple months and few years back where the Chicago and NY forumers kind of got together to compare similar shots around both citys with eachother.
There were 2 or maybe even 3 in all and the best part was that everyone got along which is rare in any vs. thread and it happend x3 for us.

I have no idea where those threads dropped but Kevin if you're out there and you got the links maybe we can bring them back to life to accompany this thread.

We should do an architecture thread paying homage to both of these citys somewhere.

Yes, I remember some of those old threads. I am sure that we can recreate them, if we can't get back the old links...

For the most part, I think NYers and Chicagoans respect each other's city. When the thread celebrates both of them, rather than compare, good things happen. :-D I still cannot find that thread, it must have been a while ago.

all about where you grow up

as with anything in ones environment, there are certain aspects that have more meaning to that person than other aspects. so the idea of "the skyline" treated as an object can have meaning to a person.

take these two people. someone that grows up in manhattan or chicago and for a majority of their lives never really leaves the city, the skyline will probably have less meaning to them vs. someone that grows up outside of either city and gets to experience the skyline the way a skyline is supposed to be experienced. from a distance.

perspective is key in the meaning of anything.

so...its a preference thing too. but i think the manhattan skyline is far more impressive than chicago...although im a fan of chicago from the ground over manhattan

maybe

Oh that last shot is money...I like how the buildings around Rush street, Streeterville, and around the water tower puncuate the sky. That, and the trio of Intercontinental, Trib, and Wrigley are quintessentially Chicago. I'll check the archives for those threads but I'll probably have no luck. If we can put our heads together on this one and get a new thread where should we put it? I'd like it if this could be that thread but the title will bring in an unwanted element that is expected. We could call it the Chicago-New York apprfeciation thread? Architecture thread? We could always call it "Wanna know who your Mommy and Daddy are?" but that would be a little too inflammatory but still funny.

It was resurrected years ago, but there wasn't a great deal of interest in it anymore.
