Your city's skyline in 1990 and now

Post a pic of your city's skyline in 1990, and then a current one, to compare and contrast the difference. Both taken from King's Park, a low hill just to the west of the CBD, from practically the same vantage point. Second photo taken by me. As you can see a lot of construction.

This is Perth in 1990 and now:

In the 90s the unchallengeable big three for skylines were Hong Kong, Chicago and NYC.

1990: Manhattan still had its imposing twin towers and the copper roofs of the neighboring World Financial Center were beginning to turn the characteristic green.

It's seems to be easier to find any decade pictures of the skyline of Mexico city but the 90's, but here I found one of 1980 of Mexico City













1990



NOW















SANTA FÉ skyline in the outskirts is the most extreme case, it used to be a slum / landfill
