  • They are more modern and the buildings are a lot taller.

  • Europe has a lot more older buildings. While North America has some pretty modern styled buildings in big cities. Like the Walt Disney Concert Hall... As infamous as it is.

  • U.S. has modern buildings but in terms of road infrastructure, Europe is better.

  • Europe has old buildings that are more stable and have lasted. Modern America urban buildings are all made out of wood and could be easily be be destroyed be earthquakes, tornadoes, etc.

  • It comes down to personal taste, but I like older architecture.

  • The title says 'in general' meaning most if not all buildings in both regions. So I have to go with Europe, reason being, they don't have a bunch of ugly box buildings everywhere. What I mean are those crap Wal-Mart looking box buildings or the McDonald you see on every street. While Europe on the other hand maintains some architectural dignity. Although old/modern american skyscrapers tend to impress, at least for me.

@thunderlord 80% of Americans live in cities -_-

Or in suburbs.

@stargate Suburbs are less than 20% of the population.

Yep, you're too busy looking for facts against other countries?

To be fair to stargate, Urban in this context could mean Schaumburg, but yes. Most Americans live in urban areas.

I'm looking for a map I had a link to not too long ago. Pop density displayed several ways. Yea, the country is concentrated around a number of population hubs.

Well no, I am looking about political facts and military facts about us and the nations around the world. I am not looking for facts to attack other nations with usually.
