I didn't know NYC and Chicago looked so much alike. If there weren't any famous buildings in the pictures I wouldn't even be able to tell which city it belonged to.

Great thread!

The building in the last picture (assuming you mean the set I found for NYC is the Woolworth aka the Cathedral to commerce)
