It makes me happy that people appreciate the architecture of my city. Chicago has great neighborhood architecture outside of downtown, but you have to know where to look I'd say, and much of it was razed by the city in decades past.

Yikes! Leaving NOLA off my list was a gross oversight. I could wander for days drinking in that city's architecture.

If I had just one to pick it would be Philadelphia! It's architecture spans our entire country's history and much of it's older architecture has been preserved. From the brick and cobblestone streets and rowhouses of it's founding in the 1680's; much of which is still intact...to it's modern and sleek office towers such as One and Two Liberty Place...Philadelphia has experienced and erected each and every architectural style that our country has to offer..including Mordern Art Deco. :-)

I have to say Miami Beach with its varied architecture, with the ART DECO of South Beach to the modern skyscrapers of Sunny Isles.
