Also, the SCENERY in Denver beats the crud outta NYC any day of the year! NYC just can't handle the might of the Rocky Mountains; a man-made skyline just doesn't beat a natural one that makes even NYC look insignificant and young.
Wow. Other than the Fray, what famous musicians, artists, or bands have come out of Denver? NYC literally has thousands. I guess you've never heard of Jay-Z or John Mayer.

NYC and Denver are among the top 1% of the top 1% cities in the world. I would say that makes it a world class city.

Hell, even at 150,000 people, Pueblo can claim that. World Class City is a overused definition, IMO.

So for having extreme pride in our state and city you say we have our heads in the clouds? (no pun intended)

If you want to flame us for having pride then go for it.

And I'm not gonna say that NYC is just an urban jungle. But I WILL say that it can't touch the beauty of the Rockies.
Union Station is literally served by one train route, twice a day. Once on its from Chicago to SF and again on its way back.

Yeah, he has a right to like Denver better but you have the right not to bite and ignore. Of course this thread is absurd as we all know New York has much better...... wait a second, I am not biting

By the way, does the OP realize that this thread is embarassing for Denver? If you want more try Rockies vs. Yankees thread. Good luck.

Is not that, what we are saying here is that Denver cannot be compared to NYC in any certain way. Now if you say LA or NYC thats comparable... It would be a better comparison Denver vs Seattle or charlotte, but not NYC. Lastly, NYC is so much powerful than Denver.

You have no idea what you're talking about. There is no such park as Capitol Park. There's City Park, where the zoo and museum are located, and there's Civic Center Park, where the Capitol and Civic Center are located. Denver's gay community is centered around Cheesman Park.

Union Station is the new center for Mass Transit in the Denver area and possibly the station for the proposed High Speed rail that could be built from Denver to Pueblo and possibly El Paso Texas.

Cheeseman Park is the gay park but that is not where gay pride is. That is at Civic Center Park in Capitol Hill. I always called it Capitol Park just as a nick name, my bad for not being percise.
