Juxtaposed skyscrapers from different ages

I really like scenes like these. There are views like these all throughout the world, not just in North America. Feel free to share your favorite contrasting combos.

This is one of my favorite photos on the subject of this thread. I actually love juxtapositions of the old and the new. We just don't have a whole lot of great examples here in Miami. The skyscraper in the farground is the Southeast Financial Center, but I can't remember the name of the building in front of it. I also find the juxtaposition of the fire escape interesting.

In front of the Southeast Financial Center (1983) is the Ingraham building. The Ingraham Building (1927) is a historic site in Miami, Florida. It is located at 25 Southeast 2nd Avenue. On January 4, 1989, it was added to the U.S. National Register of Historic Places.

New towers aren't allowed close to the historic peninsula in Istanbul and therefore the towers in the third picture have been ordered by a court decision to be trimmed, just a couple of years after completion.

Left to right: Galata Tower (1348) - The Marmara Pera (2004) - Hagia Sophia (537) - Anthill Residence (2011)

1474 years between Hagia Sophia and Anthill!

I have a feeling that this will be a popular shot for people with cameras that have decent zoom. Especially when One Vanderbilt (~2020) is constructed.

432 Park (2015) and the Empire State Building (1931)

I think this is a really good one. Four different decades for the tallest towers
