I Think Chicago is unique, and NY awsome.

Best thread ever on SSC? I think so. Beautiful pictures for both rival cities. As I said it before, Chicago is more beautiful and balanced of the skyline, but NYC is more diverse and imposing. Either way, both are probably the only cities in the world to have the best collections of skyscrapers from different eras.

This picture below isn't all that appealing and you can't tell how big or/and denst Chicago's main skyline is but it does show how wide it is. I could just imagine it in about 20 years that space being filled and Chicago having the largest skyline! Even though Chicago has one of largest skyline I feel it would rock if they started building more high rises/skyscrapers it would make Chicagos skyline very large but beautiful
