I'll make things much easier by posting 3 skyscrapers in one photo



As you can tell, Downtown Manhattan is one my favorite skylines. The combination of skyscrapers there has such a unique combination of varied styles.

@L.A.F.2...I was gonna post 70 Pine too. lol

I see that one quite often when I go to Atlanta. The gold on the crown is blinding on a sunny day.

All those are really nice. I've seen Liberty Place once from the Amtrak rail line. It looked really great!

Jesus, the John Hancock Building has to be the greatest glass box ever built. Looks as shiny and new as the day it opened.

It's fine! I did that so there wouldn't be 20 posts of 10+ photos, as it realy slows down your PC.

That last one looks so smart.
Yeah, the JHC is pretty amazing!

I also love IBM Plaza, Chicago, the best Mies Van Der Rohe building apart from TD Center.


Who could forget the Woolworth Building?


One of the greatest buildings of all time (except for the flat side), 8 Spruce Street


1 Liberty Plaza


IDS Tower, Minneapolis


And of course, 4WTC

This is a new-ish building, right? If so, the gothic details were done perfectly
