I know, but I figured it would be nice to post it anyways.

I don't know why the thread is only limited to skyscrapers, it should be for all structures.

The CN Tower is lit very well. It's amazing that alot of N.A cities are getting some nice lighting effects

Don't like the CN Tower lighting - looks like something that Macau or Vegas would do.

The Met Life would be great if it were all golden/white/yellow, not so sure a bout the green/red/blue - although that's probably for Christmas [not sure what the blue is though...]

Take your pick:

I have to admit I love the lighting of the AIG tower in HK, BUT

The ESB and the chrysler are exceptional aswell

AIG looks really tacky, but for some reason it works beautifully.
