what's so hard to believe? Anybody that posts on this forum will only provide nothing but opinions. Nothing factual at all because it comes down to preference.

Thinking of New York? Or is that a nickname for Salem that I didn't know anything about until now.

I saw downtown Houston on Tuesday morning. Looking at those buildings, I remembered why I love skyscrapers. I admire the New York and Chicago skylines. Those represent the ideal city layout. Not everything in Texas is bigger, just look at New York and Chicago. It's too bad that most of the Houston skyline is not concentrated in Downtown otherwise we can compete with those two cities. Why did we follow L.A. in the first place? But we recently realized our mistake and changed direction. I'm hoping for a Sears Tower and how's progress on the commuter trains so I'm not at the mercy of the parking garage operator?

LOL, this is so true. Richmond's skyline looks like Houston's Greenspoint skyline. Not too much at all.

To be fair, that pic is right small. But nothing compares to Rivah city.

Go to Google, click on images and put in Charlotte Skyline.
We have even named the buildings: Notre Dame, Church on the Square, Towering Inferno, Radio City Music Hall, Ice Cream Sundae, Big White Elephant, just a few.

I like Nashville and Dallas, also.

Somebody I know who went to Wake Forest always used that nickname. I'm not sure how common or widespread the nick is down there.
