Sorry man, but New York is having like the biggest boom since the 30's...
LOL! And "slow growth" for Toronto, too? I think someone is not really current with North American construction....

Well his post was from 2 Feb, 2013. Much has changed, North American cities are catching up, und SF, LA, Philly, Miami, Toronto etc. are getting (new) supertalls.

Toronto's boom started in 2006 though. By 2009 construction was at a frenzied pace and has kept at that level every year since. You'd have to go back 10+ years to find a year when Toronto's growth was slow.

Mumbai is a peninsula but it does result in the same effect: a dense core of towers surrounded by water on all sides. One might also include Chongqing and Vancouver to that list although Vancouver is a midget by comparison. It still manages to look quite good despite having relatively short buildings. You can make out the downtown peninsula in the 3rd shot:

Mumbai and New York city similarities both are financial hubs of their respective countries,coastal partly island cities, the cities attracts immigrants who come to follow their dreams.
A melting pot of diverse cultures and languages,stark diversity rich/poor being just one of many.
night life cities crazy traffic,taxi cab culture broadway and bollywood millions who make each their homes
Manhattan New York and Mumbai's Marine Drive Nariman Point/Colaba.
Mumbai is the only city in the world that resembles New York and there some 15 supertalls under construction in Mumbai, by 2020 the city of Mumbai will look a bit more like New York City.

Strip out the part about being island cities (or mostly island) and having 15 super talls and there are quite a few cities that share all of those qualities. I might add that being a mirror of New York shouldn't be the end goal for a global city, but to be bigger better versions of themselves.

He's entitled to his opinion. That said, I tend not take a top 10 list seriously if there's a European skyline in there.

European city skyline does not make it into top ten but European cities have some of great historic buildings which no American or Asians cities have .
Rome Paris Berlin London Athens Madrid Moscow etc etc are great historic cities with great architecture and buildings you would find the best are in Europe unlike those in America and Asia are just Concrete Jungle.

Yes i know we are talking about skylines not architecture and we know best skylines are the cities of North America and Asia all the modern concrete jungle where every cities wants to build taller skyscraper than Dubai, maybe Seattle could build the tallest building then who knows Seattle might get in top ten of world's best skylines.
New York London Tokyo Shanghai Frankfurt Paris Mumbai Milan Moscow Hong Kong Singapore Sydney Johannesburg Sao Paulo Mexico City Toronto etc etc are global financial centres as for Seattle nothing more USA's third rate city.
USA'S most important cities are New York number one in every respect
Chicago
San Francisco
Los Angeles
Houston
rest just like any other cities in their respective countries example
India
Mumbai is number one in every respect
Kolkata
Chennai
Delhi
Banglore
others like Ahmedabad Surat Pune Kochi Noida Kanpur and hundred rest of cities just are third rate cities .

So it would follow that your top 10 list would come from north America and Asia.
