I like the fact that Piccadilly circus has modern electronic billboards with beautiful old buildings. But for most vibrant and most full of neon etc it has to be shibuya.

That's exactly what I was thinking.

Times Square is a bit rubbish to be honest my vote goes Shibuya. PC is great but it's a bit small compared to the rest to be a realistic competitor, maybe if you included Leicester Square and Regents Street then defo.

Times square is impressive because of the height of the buildings in the area. you get a neat canyon effect going but the place is toooooo damn touristy and full of little teens.

Shibuya, in Tokyo is the most impresionant, but Times Square and Piccadilly Circus are more popular.

Where are pics of Causeway Bay and Times Square? I think Piccadilly is the least retail oriented, and Causeway Bay the most. It's interesteing how each one has a non-traditional/non-grid space. Piccadilly Circus is all wonky, Times Square is like a triangle-y thingy, Shibuya is the meeting of non-perpindicular streets...I'm not too sure about Causeway Bay though. How about Toronto's Yonge-Dundas Square?

Well since this lacks a poll, and isnt in city vs city anymore I think it is appropriate to talk about other cities now.

Toronto's Dundas Square is supposed to look like this, problem is the builders of the largest(and most spectacular) building on the right are incompotent, and as it stands that building is just a delayed hole in the ground that might not be built for years if ever...the LG sign, and the others are currently there though.

What could've been, hopefully one day it will realize its potential.


What there is now


Toronto's whole Yonge street is lined with neon and craziness.

piccadily circus? terribly underwhelming compared to the others. definitely NOT. :|

times square easily.... and GINZA/shibuya for the pedestrian density.

toronto's dundas square is a pretty cheesy 'times square' wannabe.
