All 'best' kinda polls are biased. But single option vote just makes it much worse and less informative. Good poll system does not rely on voters' awareness of fair play, because a 'top five' poll will simply do much better than the current one.

Anyway one doesn't really need a poll to get an idea which two cities have the best skylines according to the majority. People choosing cities other than the big two can be regarded as outliers given a sample size that is large enough .

Prestem atenção na foto, são 7 fotos ao total. Prestem atenção nos detalhes, nos prédios, nas avenidas, na árvore de natal

gtfo with them sao paolo pics, filthy concrete mess.

Hong Kong is impressive, but how can you NOT vote NY? NY beats everyting. Perhaps some crazy chinese city will surpass NY one day in amount and height but NY is skyscrapers history...NY will rule anyway untill a hundred years from now when you can concider some Hong Kong buildings as a classic. You know NY must win, always!

i mean, seriously:

Well I love Sao Paulo's huge concrete mess . That's my kinda city . NY will always be #1 but cities as big as SP deserve major respect. Architecture isn't everything...

Either way, we don't need 58,973 pictures of any city in one post.

I agree. After the 4th or 5th pic, I just scroll down to the next post of a different city.

5 pics is really enough to convey the idea. Any more than that is just bad manners.

New York City is still the capital of the world when it comes to skyscrapers so its skyline has to be number 1.
