Very interesting comparison. Chicago and New York are the obvious knockouts, Minny and Pittsburg are surprisingly impressive, Atlanta and Pheonix are a mess, and LA looks pathetic considering its population. It would be cool to see other Canadian cities such as Calgary, Edmonton, Ottawa, Quebec.

Interesting. Though, is there a reason Chicago was shot with a directly E-W angle? It makes the skyline seem much less tall than it is...

Because Chicago's skyline runs north-south, so rotating the view captures more of it?

I couldn't include Mexican cities, because they aren't represented in 3D on Bing maps

Anyone else notice that Minneapolis, Indianapolis and Vancouver all have the exact same stadium? Though that's changing as we speak, with the construction of Vancouver's new half-billion-dollar retractable roof Yes, after the Olympics

You mean how tall the individual buildings appear? That shouldn't make a difference.

And the one in Minneapolis had its roof collapse a few weeks ago.

But it does... Look at NYC's angle or even Toronto's. Chicago's just looks like a blob of white

I see what you're saying. It would have been better taken from a 45 degree angle to the street grid.

CTBUH, or the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat is a great resource. One can easily produce lists of buildings for a city based on criteria. I wanted to see how cities stacked up so looked at 150 m+ buildings that are completed, topped out, or under construction.

The site mentions that data for buildings under 150 m may be incomplete, so used 150 m as a cut off. I've reproduced the data below:

Hong Kong: 274
New York: 230
