Don't mind the New Yorkers, they have a right to love their city.
Please. Houston and New York don't even belong in the same sentence. But I don't blame Houston. Its the Chicago trolls trying to cause trouble here. They don't call it the windy city for nothing I suppose. Stay in your midwestern town, please.

I can count the amount of supertalls in Houston on one finger.
No, a supertall is 300 meters tall or taller to the roof (not spire).

Go here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wells_Fargo_Bank_Plaza

302 meters at 993 feet. It is a real supertall with no spire adding to the height.

Someone already posted info on the other supertall in Houston.

I really don't know what to make out of this, being that it makes no sense in any regard to what I stated in my previous post. I mean, why would I not want there to be 20 supertalls in Manhattan in the next decade? Where to you even get that time frame, or amount? It gave me a laugh, I'll give you that, but please, just no more.

It really is laughable. There's so much skyscraper goodness going on in New York right now, I almost feel sorry for some of those people with their comments. Almost.

How about this opinion:
New York City is the best damn city in the universe, It couldn't become any better in any way. No other town is better than New York in anything, not in present, nor in future. New WTC is best complex of skyscrapers in all the existing dimensions. Nothing can be done to improve it because it hits the ultimate level of greatness. Theres abso-fuckin-lutely nothing wrong with New York City, or with the new WTC complex.

True. Glad to see you've finally come around.

But there's always room for improvement. Otherwise, why build anything?

For pride and respect?
There are a few things that they don't have though: A good freeway system. Or the advantage of having a nice desert full of fascinating plants and animals.

But that's okay! I'm no troll like the one earlier.


Anyways, cities who show off like Dubai will never approach New York City becasue they're ignorant enough to create replicas of it's landmarks instead of sticking to originality.

Then your lucky you don't live in a city where millions upon millions use cars every day; it gives me a headache smelling the gas.

Archaic?. I don't think so. New Yorkers complain about the subway a lot, but there aren't many that beat it. And its still the best way to get around town. The system is so large that its always in a constant state of refurbishment. As for the smell? That's overstated as well. I don't see people walking the streets holding their noses. More times than not, what you smell are the hot dogs and pretzels from the vendors, the occasional incense, etc.

I'm sure there must be hotspots for graffiti down there in the subways.
