If you've ever been to Miami and seen it's very rapid and dynamic growth, I don't see how you can compare it to a snail. That's a really poor statement.

Endeavor305, I am also QuantumX from the Brave New Miami. They don't know I have you to thank! And I have got to get a camera like yours to get shots of the new Miami skyline from some of my other vantage points, like the one I told you about. Again, the one you took from the point I told you about is the one that to me looks the most like Chicago.

This is a nice pic, but not the whole skyline.

Thumbs up The Brickell Financial District

This is Brickell Avenue as you cross the Miami River and enter the Brickell Financial District (Miami's Wall Street).

Brickell (Plaza on Brickell and Icon Brickell) and Beyond to the Central Business District (Everglades on the Bay) and the Edgewater Arts District (Opera Tower).

Thumbs up Atlantis Rises Again!

Anyway, for all you Chicago people who don't know a compliment when you see one, as I said I would have never created this thread. I just contribute to it. But the American prophet Edgar Cayce predicted that Atlantis (the advanced civilization, the progressive superculture) would one day rise again somewhere near Bimini. Having gone scuba diving there enough times, I'd say Miami is close enough, so forget the Chicago/Miami comparisons. What do I care? We've got our own unique thing going on here in Miami in what could very well turn out to be the biggest one-time skyscraper building boom in American history.

K, I understand the river thing and the shoreline thing as well, but my main problem is the fact that Miami skyline is smaller and less tall building height wise.

I think you guys are actually closer to the Milwaukee Skyline, as miami and Milwaukee share a river running through the town and a shoreline. Downtown sizes look better compared to eachother.

1.) Fine. We've addressed the difference in height and size of the Miami skyline and the Chicago skyline time and time again on this thread already.

2.) Comparing the Miami skyline to the Milwaukee skyline is even more absurd than comparing the Miami skyine to the Chicago skyline!

THE MIAMI SKYINE IS 12 TIMES THE SIZE OF THE MILWAUKEE SKYLINE!!! As ascertained earlier, the Chicago skyline is roughly only 4 times the size of the Miami skyline.
