    American cities aren’t all the same. Los Angeles feels nothing like say Chicago. New Orleans feels nothing like Boston. New York feels nothing like Dallas. San Francisco feels nothing like Memphis. Also, this convo is silly. The US is one country. The cities do have diversity and feel different from each other but it’s stupid to compare it to Europe which is a collection of DIFFERENT COUNTRIES.

    What we have in the US takes the concept to another place. The autobahn is a highway but it isn’t interstate. I can ride the same highway across multiple states in the US and the roads are built to support it.

    Its rare to see more than a 4 lane highway anywhere in Europe. Hell alot of roads are basically designed to fit one small car at a time. nikkas used to ship hummers and big ford trucks overseas and not be able to drive them off base lol.

    Not for almost 1000 years. And not to the same effect. Its one thing to have the French run the town for 70 years...It's another to have them run it for 200 then have it sacked by Goths, who run it and build shyt for 100 years, then Mongols burn it down...etc. And also, France and Spain were still European colonial powers of the same era, so there's a lot of shared ideology. That is not the same as going from the Holy Roman Empire to the European Union over the span of 800 some odd years. With multiple empires and cultural sensibilities wedged in-between

    I also said that New Orleans is one of the few exceptions, just like Boston. And if you visit Boston you will see that it's built like a European city. Thin winding streets, pedestrian boulevards, and random dead ends.

    NYC is the same as Houston?
    DC is the same as New Orleans?
    Miami is the same as Baltimore?
    Oakland is the same as ATL?
    Seattle is the same as Phoenix?
    Chicago is the same as Dallas?
    Charlotte is the same as Portland, OR?
    Boston is the same as Los Angeles?
    Philly is the same as Charleston, SC?
    Savannah is the same as San Antonio?
    San Francisco is the same as Memphis?
    Nashville is the same as Pittsburgh?
    Buffalo is the same as Honolulu?
    San Diego is the same as Austin?
    Las Vegas is the same as Orlando?
    Jacksonville is the same as Denver?
    Tampa is the same as Hartford?
    Minneapolis is the same as St. Louis?
    Cincinnati is the same as Tulsa?
    Raleigh is the same as Cleveland?
    RVA is the same as Sacramento?
    Annapolis is the same as Mobile?
    Tallahassee is the same as Harrisburg PA?

    Its not but I understand the point. In America we have a "big, stone or glass, skyscraper skyline" with perhaps 1 or 2 truely unique structures. ie. Space Needle, Stl. Arch, etc. Legit EVERY American city has this building...

    The architectural differences between Venice, Florence, and Rome are totally different...down to the individual areas. So I get the point...it's just a really unfair one to make considering historical context.

    I say that American cities are quite different from one and another for the most part. It's American towns and other smaller settlements that look the same.

    It's also true that Americans tend to base city planning around automobiles. Terrible idea... Most Yank automobiles are shyt.

    His analysis doesn't apply well to Paris.

    Philly is pretty unique too

    The cities that are less unique are the newer ones that look like suburbs, but even they can be unique culturally even if not structurally unique

    Paris is pretty much like any other huge world city. They have mature infrastructure. Especially around the city center. Very segregated too. I seen alot of brehs the first time I went but I was staying in Champs with so it was mostly wealthy cacs around. The second time I went I tapped in with some brehs who were promoters and I saw a completely different city. There’s a “Black Paris” that alot of people don’t know about and you probably wouldn’t get there without knowing somebody.
