^Haha I was thinking this, a few cylindrical looking pods stuck to a main frame doesn't cut it for me. I mean whats the deal with that thing at the top right, The Pentagon V2?

Not only that, it looks like something someone whipped up on SimCity...

Looking south from 'Top of The Rock' maybe the most iconic Cityscape view ? I reckon...

Yup being in Manhattan for the first time is surreal, like living in a movie or a dream. It lives up to all expectation.

No other place is quite like it bar maybe Hong Kong but HK hasn't got that 'living in a dream' quality. Shanghai is impressive too but it lacks the impact and really jut feels like a big city. NYC is so familiar it's scary, so many famous buildings. The buses the streets the sights and smells. It's so captivating, on my first trip I had to pinch myself to make sure it was real.

Talking of megatalls, here's my post from the Seoul Lotte World Tower thread.

It's to be 555m tall when completed.
