The world's best skyline list.

Toronto is way down the list.Just infront of Sydney.

Hong Kong dominates.

New York second

Shanghai rising.

Tokyo in third.


having been to most of these places the list makes perfect sense.

Check it out

Philly #34...hmmm as much as I love Boston, I still think Philly has the beefier more attractive spire infused skyline. Boston's skyline is not better but it is a notch above Philly's according to the list. The list was a bit off IMO.

According to Emporis, Boston has 300 high rises and Philly has 428. Philly's skyline is about 30 percent bigger.

On the Emporis list Boston is 44 and Philly is 34.

This list uses a highly objective set of factors. The beauty of a skyline is a lot more subjective than that.

Again the question of why do they put Miami & Miami Beach together but not Sunny Isles? If the three were separated the Greater Miami would have 3 of the top 100 in the world with 330 more currently planned or underconstruction.

"Most skyscraper" doesn't mean "Best Skyline".
