Moscow would probably get my vote But New York downtown is really compact aswell, you just don't think about it since it covers such a big area.

The only Asian city that comes to best, small compact skyline is Singapore, which I think is the best in the world. Moscow is another small compact skyline that is pretty nice.

In the states I would put Houston up there togheter with LA and SF.
