The last one was a little tough...this one will be TOUGHER. Okay: who has the best architecture in your opinion, compare and contrast, give a history lesson on your city's/boroughs (or the one you prefer) architecture, rank them 1-8 if you can.



There you have it, knock yourselves out with this. I'm sort of in a rush and I just took the first pictures that I saw:If you have any better photos, feel free to show it off (I know that there are better ones).

Which city will do the "brutality" on which city, first one to triple digits gets the W.

I was a bit disappointed with the New Orleans and Kansas but I enjoyed them all thanks for the tour.

I think this is going to be between Boston, Brooklyn, and San Francisco...not too sure how well the others stack up.

I personally think Boston's architecture is better than San Francisco's...Brooklyn has some amazing monuments, but I like Boston's architecture a little bit more...but that may be homerism.

Don't sleep on Kansas City and Cincinnati (2 very underrated cities). You already know what BMore and Pittsburgh have.

Boston, Cincin, SF

I hate Cincin in every possible way but I give credit where credit is due and Cincin has some of the nicest architecture around.
