    New York has a lot of nice buildings. The Empire State Building has a bit more competition than the Hotel of Doom.

    Yes, assuming we're talking about how the buildings ACTUALLY look...rather than the worst picture you could find of the Empire State Building, and the DPRK-Photoshop-propaganda picture of the Hotel Of Doom.

    So, to prove your own feelings and bias.. You post a picture of the empire state building at night. Instead of viewing my realistic picture. The real empire state building, in light at a distance not too far away, not too up close.

    Then you show the picture of the NK hotel before they started putting glass on it...

    To be perfectly honest I do not even find the empire state building on the top 100 list of buildings in the US. Compared to daimler tower, the empire state building is ugly, in my opinion..

    Fair enough. Here is it in the daylight. Still quite awesome.

    Is there any actual evidence that they ARE putting glass in it, rather than just Photoshopping pictures of it? Also, putting glass in it hardly makes it more attractive. A reflection of the rest of the Pyongyang skyline is just as ugly as the concrete.

    If they actually are putting glass in it, their money would be better spent tearing this down and rebuilding it with steel. Or better yet, actually feeding their people and building their economy.

    It doesn't have an inside. There are no windows, no plumbing, no doors, no furniture, and no habitable rooms. It can hardly even be called a building. It's just a monument to white elephants.

    No way of knowing that.. Perhaps is massive gold inside.
