in that last picture, Nanjing could easily beat any North American skyline outside of NY, Chicago, and Toronto. Is Nanjing a second or third tier Chinese City?

Nanjing is a tier 2 city.

Nan-Jing literally means "Southern Capital" in Chinese (while Beijing means the Northern Capital), served as the capital of China for several occasions, most recently in the early 20th century when it was the capital of the Republic of China (Note: not the People's Republic of China) which is now based in Taipei.

Nanjing with over 8 million people is the second largest city in East China Region in terms of urban population only after Shanghai. (Might be 3rd or 4th largest in the same region in terms of Metropolitan Area Population after Shanghai, Suzhou and Hangzhou)

Oh btw, the city will host the 2014 Summer Youth Olympics next month.

Youre right there. Chongqing, Manhattan and HK island are unique in the world as cities built on granite islands (for the case of CQ it's a peninsular). Thus space constraints means they have to head upwards, and the granite also means they can build very densely (without the need for expensive, massive foundations as in London or Shanghai which are built on clay).
