No SoHo, no Chelsea, no Greenwich Village, No TriBeCa. No beautiful residential neighborhoods. Just stupid skyscrapers. And ugly/bland neighborhoods like Chicago.

Oh and from my visits I find NYC's skyline more stunning. My vote goes to NYC.
omg the wonderful neighborhoods right? the neighborhoods? soho?
this is about skylines not the vibrant amazing eclectic beautiful residential neighborhoods omg, which consist of ugly buildings that take away from the potential killer skyline nyc could have if it wasnt broken up by random uninteresting buildings

Def NY the scale of it is awe inspiring and I love the mix of older and new buildings. Cant wait to see what Downtowns skyline is gonna look like after the WTC is all complete.

Not for long NY has more supertall skyscrapers under construction, approved, or just planned than any city in the world right now.

Wholeheartedly disagree. That area may not contribute much to a postcard from-afar photo, but some of the finest 19th century architecture in the world exists in those neighborhoods. It would be a tragedy to lose them.

Kind of a moot point unless we were going off of height alone.
