the architecture feels futuristic, but it also feels like something that could be built today if one wanted to
it's not coldly robotic, and it feels "human"

How did they do it?

You can't build tall buildings out of brick though. You can have brick walls resting on concrete beams but an entire building out of bricks can't stand up to earthquakes and for medium to tall buildings, the lower floors would have to be super thick.
Eg: A two storey building out of bricks would require the lower floors to be roughly two or three layers thick at least, as long as the top floor is only one layer.

Look at the building, and then the cars. It almost feels anachronistic.

Imagining myself in there makes me feel nostalgic as hell. In my country (it was also on the soviet side) there was a building with a similar design in my town, and I pretty much spent my childhood near it.

Then they demolished in 1997 to make a new building in that place - a big-ass office centre for a bank. The design was pretty similar, but something about it just didn't click anymore.

The key is making the street level vibrant. Many cities which have that comfy feeling have storefronts on the first floors of their buildings, it fosters that comfiness, removes the need for ugly-as-fuck strip malls, and brings in money. It also makes things safer and feel safer, crime doesn't happen when you have multiple witnesses.

And if we stopped subsidizing roads then we'd have more cities like this and no cookie-cutter suburbia.

when they smack this absurdly-looking shit between some old buildings that were made in totally different style, that's another story and I hate it
I agree with you on this...

It would probably be great in a futuristic city built from the scratch where every building is a work of art
But this is wrong. When every building is it's own unique stand-alone work of art, the city looses its cohesiveness. If every building had a yard and podium what you get is a "suburban" city. That's a city that is incredibly inefficient at moving goods and information because the distances between any two buildings is so great. The result is traffic jams, high energy prices, and derelict streetscapes. Cities need density to function.

Source: Brasilia was the worst mistake ever in urban planning.

NYC has funny zoning.

And that's how construction works, one person builds a big dick example, and other firms copy it until it gets successively cheaper. Supply and demand. A chinese company wants to build a 1000m tower in just a year, using prefab, it would be much cheaper than this monstrosity.

It's funny seeing the statue of William Penn crowded out by all the skyscrapers that have sprung up around it. The city always looks so small from I-95 too, mostly because it's just a huge sprawl of row homes and cathedrals outside of the downtown area. I hate to say it but there's nothing really special about the buildings there unless you go hunting for the old churches.

cities need density to function
They also need tourist spots to showcase the wealth. Everyone wants to feel like they are living somewhere 'important' in a dense urban sprawl, it encourages investment and population in the first place. This is why the richest city in the history of mankind has a giant park in the middle of it.
No easy answers.

The record low temperature was 25 °F (−4 °C) on January 7, 1913.[4] The record high temperature was tied only once and happened on September 27, 2010, 47 years and two days after the set record.

Urban skylines give me a sense of peace. I hate the fucking city so much because of all the everything, but watching it from afar makes me feel like its no big deal. I live in the suburbs and the highest building is this huge hospital and they have giant glass windows, when you look out of them you just see a forest with little strips of roads and a few downtown areas with chicago just barely out of view. Its a magical place, especially when you're close to death and pondering the worth of your meaningless existence.

Unfortunately it is as you say. The old part of town was build with a very small roads between the buildings, so the roads you see around this theater were considered wide at that moment. It's because you don't need 5 lines for a dozen of horse carriages. Now, all the buildings around it are considered as history monuments and protected from demolition by the law, so there's no way to make space.

One of the nice things about Hong Kong is that, while it is certainly planned from a vantage point, the culture, history and density of the city means that the average pedestrian isn't perturbed by this. Unless of course they're one of those people that hate concrete and buildings on principal.
Most streets in the city offer active and interesting sights from top to bottom. At the base there are the crowds of people, shops and stands line so many of the sidewalks, along with the facades of old-school and colonial buildings. As your eye moves upward you can see the disrepair of these aging structures, countless neon signs and rows upon rows of air conditioning units. Finally above it all are the top floors of residential skyscrapers, commercial towers and offices

Oooh, this, I've made some beautiful furniture. It would be fun to talk about it on the chans.

I mainly work with wood, but I've dabbled in other stuff.

Basically Muslims were the world leaders in architecture, science, and mathematics during the middle ages. Then the Mongols happened. Then a wave of itinerant preachers went about convincing everyone that science and numbers were the devil and you get roughly the middle east we have today, full of over zealous religious assholes. It's like the opposite of what happened in Europe.

This
Places like Tokyo, New York, and Hong Kong have grown into what they are organically over the course of centuries. The problem with so many American business & finance districts, the "downtown"s that compose the majority of each city's skyline, is that they were built specifically for that purpose and nothing else. They're entirely empty, soulless and boring places to be otherwise. The most interesting thing that happens is the occasional beggar hanging out on the curb. I was in Minneapolis/St Paul the other day, and on the weekend the whole downtown district was a fucking ghost town. Not a soul. It was terrible, and not in a good way

I feel like that's what Moscow's financial district would be like

That was more than I was expecting (I thought it was around 100k) but that works out to about 2% of the population. Still an incredibly shitty situation.

The skyscrapers looked taller, thinner and closer together than anything I have ever seen. In the busier areas, the streets are like a giant mall, most metro stations also have giant malls built on top of them, so getting around is really easy. Awesome food everywhere, whatever your budget. There is also surprisingly a lot of wilderness for hiking and outdoors stuff as well. You can also hit up Macao if you want to see Las Vegas on steroids. You will most likely have to settle for living in a closet sized room while you are there but honestly it didn't bother me since I rarely spent time there when I wasn't sleeping.

That is fantastic to hear. I have no qualms with sleeping in such cramped quarters, in fact I'm almost looking forward to it. I'd like to check out the Chungking Mansions and see just how cheap I can find a place to stay for a couple nights, just for the experience.
Any places you would recommend? To eat, shop, see etc

They don't work. Skyways in others cities have failed because they lack connection to transit and other services found on the street level. Also coordinating buildings that may be built from different eras with different owners/developers/contractors is a fucking nightmare.

My next project is going to be turning a sakazuki on a lathe. I was going to use red milk paint, but I found a beautifully figured piece of walnut the right size, so I'm going to finish with many coats of tung oil instead.

Getting the lines right is going to be super hard, but if it comes out right I'll find some way to post it.

It depends on how long you plan to stay, but typically Id check out Central (affluent area) and Mong Kok (super dense population, closest to cyberpunk). There is tons of great food too, everything from cheap eats to Michelin star affair (even cheap Michelin star restaurants). Honestly its hard to recommend things (aside from general tourist things), there is so much, and it is so dense that the whole thing is just an experience.

It's because our public transportation is shit. It only really exists in the large east coast cities, maybe some in California but I've never been there. Where it does exist it is old, poorly maintained, and in general dirty.

I've been all over New York and Boston, and all over Germany. Let me tell you, Germany's public transportation is some nxtlvl shit. Nothing breaks down, everything is on time, everything is clean, there is access to everywhere and its fast. After my flight in I traveled everywhere by foot, train, and sometimes bus. It was one of the best experiences of my life and I would highly recommend it.

I go to Boston every summer and know it pretty well. In one of the connecting tunnels there is a low spot with filthy standing water that is there all the time. It's been there for AT LEAST four years, they just put a caution sign in front of it and make people walk around it.

It's a goddamn disgrace.
