Its like the worst of NYC in the 80s x 10
I saw you answered later in the thread so I edited my post with different questions.
Personally I haven't been, but people I know who have came back with horror stories.
nikka Queens got a better skyline
As a person who's photography concentrates on cityscapes, Sao Paulo has a trash as Skyline with nothing iconic. It's not even top 20
The top 5 that I've seen with my own eyes....
This thread definitely slept on Frisco
Sao Paulo is just big. It isn't a pretty skyline. Just literally a concrete jungle.
Chicago is the GOAT skyline if you want something that's actually good to look at.
Chicago's Skyline lacks 'architecture grandeur'.
While being the birthplace of the skyscraper, the Skyline hasn't improved in over 40 years. With all the new tech that we have in building, Chi is being left behind
Tokyo is a bit like Sao Paulo. Just a concrete jungle. But what separates it is the Tokyo Tower and the Sky Tree. And it also doesn't hurt to have Mt. Fuji in the background
Post some buildings that meet this characteristics.
We don't have the government drive to make megacities really work.
1. We hate public transportation
2. We hated (until recently) multiuse buildings.
3. We hate updating (and paying for) infrastructure in intelligent ways.
4. The school systems can't currently handle our medium sized cities let alone the giant ones.
5. People don't want to do the grunt work it takes to keep all that shyt running.
Imagine if NYC, Jersey, Hartford, Boston and Philly was all one city. That's basically Tokyo.
I will say this, the movie Romeo + Juliet kinda made Sao Paulo iconic for me. The city itself isn't aesthetically attractive but it's setting in the movie felt kinda right.
NYC skyline already different.. shyt lookin like Dubai skyline now
Too cluttered for me
