Fantastic photos again, everyone Keep going! You just gotta love those bustling metropolises incorporating the perfect urban feeling, except being more car-centered than e.g. European cities are.

Wow, this it the ultimate thread for skyscraper lovers . Cities like Hong Kong are nice, but they doesn't have the same style and quality as Chicago or NY.

I like NY a little better than Chicago, because I loathe the urban sprawl in Chicago. I guess I should just look beyond that.

Now a more practical question: I presume that these are both rather expensive cities. Which one is the most affordable for a trip (and I'm not talking about the flight or so)?

Chicago is more affordable by far. But half the fun of New York is finding ways to enjoy more for less. Never pay full retail!

Chicago is easily cheaper, especially away from the Loop and entertainment district.

What a gorgeous residential area!

You just gotta love this kind of townhouses. I'm also really fond of your typical NYC brownstones. Got any of these?
