My that is a Big One!
There are tall cities and short cities. I work in Washington DC, a wonderful short city. Not the only great world capital that is short, so is Paris, Rome, Athens, until the last 20 years London. DC and Paris are short cities, as in cities filled with short buildings, by choice. DC passed building limitations limiting the height of the building based on the width of the street right of way, as a way to preventing tall building from blocking the view of Washington Monument. Paris had done something similar.
Yet, I truly love big ones, tall buildings, cities with towering skylines - like New York, Philly, Chicago, and San Francisco.
I read that if you want to draw a lot of page views, writing an enticing headline - I'll tell you in a few days if this one worked.
So do you prefer tall cities or short cities?
