I had no idea there were any cars in a metro of 23 million. Thank you for setting us all straight by finding one of the like 2 coffee drive-thrus in Brooklyn. There are coffee drive thrus in Paris and Phoenix, which obviously means they're the same.

It's not really new, and it looks weird... as do all other Starbucks drive-thrus. I drove past this one earlier this week.

1. What does that post have to do with the thread topic?

2. What about the line of cars in the drive-thru? There's nothing unusual about it. Not too long, not too short. What's your point?

Drive-through coffee shops are the only drive-throughs that make sense to me. Who the fuck likes eating in the car?

Because as you may notice, discussions from other threads bleed over to many other threads.

You do realize people can pick up food and bring the food home? I know urbanites think that Uber magically makes the food they buy and deliver it on site but they go somewhere, wait, and then bring the food to you.

Taco Bell, Mcdonalds, Wendys...whatever. They all deliver now. Which is the same(although slightly more convienent but more expensive) thing as stopping by taco bell on your way home.

Chicago does have a nice, mouthwatering skyline. Not many cities out there that can say they have multiple skyscraper canyons.

Took a screen shot off a drone clip.

Chicago looks best heading south on the Kennedy, or from Museum Campus vicinity, IMO.

Those are common angles indeed.

But have you seen downtown from Montrose Harbor?

Another good angle is Promontory Point. Probably why George Lucas had his wedding there.

An honorable mention to Seattle. That city in the last 10 years has completely transformed.
