I've also been thinking about how people often say/write that for a city to be great it also has to be tall. But after a few times taking the escalator out of Metro tunnels and being bowled over by by views of modestly tall churches, crossing beautiful squares surrounded by not very tall buildings, and taking a ride in a tiny boat past old ships, modern museums, and rows and rows of canal houses (none taller than six stories), the arguments about the necessity of skyscrapers fall pretty short.
