Well I laughed at some of those more than I should have.

Some striking images. That Empire State one seems out of place though, even though Paris is known for the Eiffel Tower standing head above everything else in a big way.

I like the third from the last … demonstrate how Paris could've integrated vertical development into the fabric of the city.

A fun exercise...

Some of the early ornate buildings of modest height seem to fit in fairly well as long as there are not too many of them.

However, I did not know that the Wrigley Building was a New York skyscraper!
(see picture just above the Flatiron building image)

These skyscrapers were massive. They should be integrated in the center of city planning like Eiffel Tower to fit in Paris. :cheers:

Probably a fill in for the Municipal Building, which wasn't necessary (there are lots of photos of it).

This last one is pretty cool! If NYC had adopted a European street system rather than the rectangular grid. Such a simple change would have had a profound impact on the development of the city.
