Look who made it to the banner today!

That is one helluva skyline. Reminds me of the Married with Children opening credits...

Dreamy.

So I've been working on a possible addition to this thread concerning photos single buildings for both cities through time. It would take up a lot of space on this thread...any oppositions?

So you intend to post historical photos I guess? I suggest to open a new thread for this.

Oh, and there already are fantastic ones, as you know the Old NYC photos thread.

But I'd be pleased if you could open a new international thread for both cities (or even more, perhaps the whole States)

Nah I kinda want to put it here as it does pertain to the topic of the thread. They're not historical photos. Most if not all of what I have collect were taken in recent years.
