Yep - basically I meant that they wouldn't look out of place in a "best skyline" thread. Some of the other poll options are mad though.

Fantastic NY pics.

Dubai will be the world's best in 2015-2020 but this year I have to give it to:

Shanghai- It looks so futuristic but keeps its traditional elements.

I think Dubai is awful. Tall but awful. It looks low quality and it really shows that it has been rushed up but hey, that's just me.

Chicago's skyline is highly underrated. Third place, but faaaar behind the other two.

I know it's a matter of taste, but still!

Most people seem to have Chicago in 3rd or 4th, so wouldn't that suggest that it's getting a fair shake in your books?

I've also seen several people place it at #1 - I don't think it's underrated at all.

This debate has been going on ever since SSC started, I think. And there will never be a definitive winner, though most people here choose HK & NYC as top two.

We need to break it into difference categories, like:

- Best in each region
- Best modern
- Best historic
- Best standout features
- Best cluster
- Best panoramic
- Best for small city
- Most underrated

etc
