And Im talking about the Seattle-Tacoma-Olympia, WA CSA which has a population of 3,980,498...maybe not twice as big but I suspect that will change by 2014 or so.
So if we're measuring CSA, then it's 3.98 to 2.45.

Well, as pretty as Pittsburgh is, I'm afraid Seattle will win the picture battle, especially pwright. His stuff is incredible. The NFL...now that is a different story

Yes, pwright's pics are very nice! I'd like to see their take on places like Pittsburgh. (No offence ainulinale. Your pics are great too, but they seem to focus more on content, and less on composition.)

Umm, to get back on topic... Based on the pictures in this thread, I would prefer Pittsburgh for the architecture.

'Tis all dependent on what ya like. Personally, I think Seattle has nicer landscape by far. However, Pittsburgh IMO, destroys Seattle in architecture--both in its neighborhoods and CBD.

Let me offer a few more pics I took today of the Northside .

IMHO Pittsburgh wins architecturally and its downtown architecture is second to none, but its downtown vibrancy doesn't come anywhere close to Seattles'. And as a whole Seattle's density, restaurants, nightlife, natural beauty, cleansiness, water, economy, growing population, beaches, whale watching, jazz, rainforest, national parks, skiiing, festivals and so on make it the one for me.
