That's not all that high of a density...at least in comparison to the Northeastern and Midwestern cities before white flight. I can name for you a dozen Pittsburgh neighborhoods alone that surpassed that.

Lol, plus Brooklyn is on the South Shore itself. In fact there is a high school in Brooklyn called South Shore High School - unless they renamed it after a Kennedy like everything else in NY!

Rain,


Your credibility is slowly evaporating. How many times do I have to prove you wrong in a thread? This is getting ridiculous and comical all at once. DC has 110 million square feet of COMMERCIAL office space. This does not include the Federal office buildings. The key word here is COMMERCIAL. If you add in the Federal office space, in buildings such as the IRS, FBI, Interior, Agriculture, Labor, Transportation, Justice, Energy, State Dept, etc.... then DC has more than 180 million square feet coming in behind NYC. Let me know if you want the link again that supports my statement.

I can almost assure you he/she doesnt have a link that says Washington has(180 M sq ft of office space) Whew which would be almost 40% more downtown office space as Chicago.

Any reports I have seen has washington at 80 M sq ft(1/3 of which is occupied by the Feds)
Chicago at 120 M sq ft.
Manhattan at whopping 440 M sq ft.

SF,Bos at 50 M sq ft
Philly 45 M sq ft.

Ainuline I believe Pitt has about 20 M sq ft.

Interesting. Thanks. I thought Pittsburgh was a bit bigger by office space than its size denotes. I've been looking for a list of cities by office space for years now...ever since I read that on 9/11 NYC lost more office space than the entire city of Cincinnati...which is simply unreal if that's true.

There is no way that's true...

WTC's apparently had 16 million square feet; if Pittsburgh has 20 million, than I don't think it is too unlikely. Through a quick search, I found this (though it says equivalent):

I'd love to see this from a credible source. Please no chamber of commerce puff piece, a legitimate source like Cb Richard Ellis or Studley would be much appreciated.

That was a good one.... You are absolutely right, some comparisons simply do not make any sense.
