My top 10, with the help of Wiki*

1) Hong Kong, China
Part of emerging Pearl River Delta metro area

Lower building quality than NYC and too many commieblocks, but Hong Kong wins because of its nature (mountains). Plus, it has a bigger potential (since China is gonna surpass USA economically). It also looks so futuristic!

2) New York, United States

Started the era of skyscrapers along with NYC. I also love the Neo-Gothic architecture.

5) Tokyo, Japan

Tokyo is the world's most populous metropolitan area and has the highest city GDP in the world.

Toronto skyline would look more massive if all the tall buildings were along the Lake Ontario waterfront. Toronto also leads North America in high-rise construction.**

1 - Chicago (I like the lake setting and the mix of old and new)
2 - Hong Kong (again, like the setting)
3 - New York City (great density and mix of old and new)
4 - Singapore (just looks nicely in proportion)
5 - Sydney (again, a nice even skyline with a great setting)

Cities like Dubai don't appeal to me at all. They look fake.

Is it really that surprising a post considering what country she's from? Some Americans think Europe is this place in Paris. A nation of extremes, indeed. Even more amusing was that she didn't think New York warranted a mention.

True. If she's under 12 years old, my apologies.
