  1. I've worked in Asiatown for 10 years and I currently live in Copley. I suggest you look on Akron's west side as proximity to I-77 is a huge time saver.
  2. I'm not sure where you got your information, but I'm skeptical anyone at Luxottica stated the reason they left Cincinnati was because of a lack of a hub. Luxottica's US headquarters is based in Mason, a Cincinnati suburb. Their international headquarters is in Milan, as Luxottica is, and always was, an Italian company.
  3. A minor quibble: Los Angeles' US Bank Tower has a roof at 1,018 feet, and Houston's 600 Travis St. has a roof at 1,002 feet.
  4. In no particular order: Los Angeles (my second-home) London Singapore Tokyo Sydney but it's so hard to choose. I also love Hong Kong, Perth, Gold Coast, Honolulu, Rome, Jerusalem, Cape Town, Stockholm, etc.
  5. From ArsTechnica: https://arstechnica.com/cars/2018/04/the-latest-hyperloop-feasibility-study-aims-to-connect-cleveland-and-chicago/ "Northeast Ohio Areawide Coordinating Agency (NOACA) are opening Request for Proposals (RFP) in partnership with startup Hyperloop Transportation Technologies, known as HyperloopTT, to study the feasibility of a Hyperloop line between Cleveland and Chicago." This would be very, very cool. Edit: Mods, if this belongs in another forum, please move. Thanks.
  6. Wow! Thank you so much for sharing. Tokyo is on my wanderlust list. It looks like it may be the cleanest city I've ever seen. Edit: I just got back from Singapore a couple of months ago and it looks similarly clean.
  7. United States: [*]Cleveland [*]Los Angeles [*]New York [*]Honolulu [*]Miami International: [*]London/Rome [*]Singapore/Hong Kong [*]Sydney/Perth [*]Jerusalem [*]Rio de Janeiro
  8. I found Rio, and most of Brazil, to be pretty slummy. It's not central Africa by any means, but definitely second-world. As far as a model, try Google Earth. It doesn't provide the full 3-D experience that you get with most US cities, but it can help you formulate a 3-d model in your mind. I found it to be the most beautiful location to place a city that I've ever visited.
  9. Your photos are incredible. I was in Rio two years ago and the experience was just magical. Judging from your shots above Copacabana, it looks like you were near Fort Copacabana. I stayed at the Sofitel on that corner so I could be close to Ipanema, too. Highly recommended. I also found the people very warm, and I am still in contact with friends I met while I was down there. Most of my time, though, was in the Amazon and northward in Roraima. Thanks for the photographs. Great memories.
