I haven't publicized this one from Toronto before. It was taken from the Rochester express ferry terminal in the Portlands area.

It's funny...you can take any picture of New York and it still looks amazing no matter what. And lets not forget that New York City has 3 separate skylines





Toronto doesn't look half as impressive as New York, though it looks like they're making some progress.

No discussion for me. You have NY high at the top. Miles down, follows Toronto.

The best skyline are closely matching between NYC and Chicago....
While NYC has awsome amounts of mid rises and skyscrapers, chicago has large amounts of skyscrapers and supertalls. So they are both best skylines in NA with different perspectives!

Then follow by Toronto!

The pic looks striking especially with father and his daughter in the foreground

Also like the Chicago pics with the freight yard. There must be alot of graffiti writers in that area at night!
