The view from the train before it turns north to enter Union Station is one of the greatest views a skyscraper lover could ever ask for. Especially at sunset/dusk. When those lights come on...

This is an interesting picture. It has part of both NYC & Chicago skyline but also Hong Kong, LA, & Seattle.

I guess you can. It's appreciating most Skyscraper Cities.

I just spent hours going through all these pics, and all I can say is wow! These cities shouldn't be compared. These cities stand next to each other as equals, proudly boasting the world's two greatest skylines, after seeing all these pics i can say this, No unbiased person can say that New york's skyline is better then Chicago's, and no unbiased person can say that Chicago's skyline is better then New York. These cities are the most important cities in America, they represent everything we believe in, they represent our pioneering spirit, and our freedom. These cities are America's heart and soul, and represent our great nation. These cities are magnificent, and are some of the most beautiful cities in the world. So just take a moment and marvel at these world class cities, because world class isn't enough to explain how incredibly beautiful and powerful these cities are.

Bigger is not always better. Like I said I love both cities, but i have some problems with nyc. First off, there is way too many buildings, the great buildings get lost among all the ugly buildings. and i like how their are beautiful parks in chicago, and just to the left and a mile ahead are massive buildings like the sears and aon tower. I dont like how all you can see is buildings when your in nyc.

Got a better way of fitting almost 1.6M residents, and almost 4M people total when you include daily commuters onto a 26 square mile island?

As for the parks, ever been to Battery Park, because it's remarkably like Millennium Park in Chicago in its general layout with buildings on one side and water on the other, or what about the Cloisters, because in those parks you do get a little bit of NY Harbor and the Hudson River. Feel free to stay in Tulsa.

Did I make you angry or something ? I really like new york city, i was just mentioning a few things about it that sometimes bother me. I was annoyed because i had just made a post talking about how both cities were amazing, and HK999 had to come in and make it a city vs city thread.

LOL, that's so not true. I said bigger not better... meaning population, number of buildings / highrises, GDP, etc.

A city vs city conversation would start like this: "They are both great cities but CHI is such a crime- infested sh*thole. Till April 1, the city has seen over 120 murders (non-fatal shootings: 490)..."


Please don't interpret my comment(s) in the wrong way.

What I miss very much are the lush green margins that border the sidewalks of the residential streets in Chicago's Northside.

Here in Manhattan, is is pretty much concrete, with a tree breaking the monotony every now and then.

A typical residential street close to my old Chicago home:
