Totally agree. I love this thread from page 1. I am still collecting some interesting photos of single buildings AND am trying to figure out a way to present them. I love NY and Chicago...two wonderful places.

There's more to Chicago than just the skyline and tall buildings. But yea, I dig the red brick.

I love the comments like this. This is what this thread is supposed to be: a celebration of two great American cities.

I understand that there's a level of competition between New York City and Chicago, but there's one thing that I've come to consider as a great balancing factor.

Chicago itself is the birthplace of the skyscraper, one of the greatest innovations in modern human history. However, New York City plays host to the king of skyscrapers (by which I mean the Empire State Building). ESB may not be the tallest or biggest anymore, but it was revolutionary is so many ways, broke nearly all the records, and rose during the depression, becoming one of the most internationally known landmarks.

I love both skylines, both cities, and the diversity that they both offer.
