Chrysler is about 60m shorter than the ESB after all, or about 16% of ESB's height. Hence I'm not surprised to see the difference.

Nice shot. BTW, one of the buildings in Portland was used for Simcity 3000

Yep. KOIN Tower was used in SC3000 and SC4. It's called Grey Matter Place.

I didn't see it in SC4 as one of the stock buildings. But the Simcity version made the building look taller

Here is a wider shot of New York from La Guardia :



The view of Midtown is quite complete. If only I had a seat on the left upon takeoff ... then I could've gotten some skyline aerials.

I think Downtown Manhattan is the best skyline in the world, even better than Midtown Manhattan which I would consider to be the second best skyline in North American and the world. Just the diversity of Downtown Manhattan I haven't seen in any other skyline in the world. As Spooky says, no other skyline has buildings that span 100 years. From classic skyscrapers like the Trump Building to futuristic ones like the Freedom Tower. Plus, I like the way it is laid out, its density, and how it overlooks New York Harbor!

Doesn't Chicago have scrapers that span a hundred years?

Yes, they do. There are a number of them scattered around in the Loop. I'll try to dig some up later and post them in the next part of my Chicago photo series.

Yes, I guess they do but they don't have anything like the Empire State Building, Chrysler Building, 40 Wall St., Woolworth, etc. which give NYC an edge. No other city in the world has something like that. Just NYC's skyline is much more diverse than any other I've seen. Hong Kong's skyline is way too modern. Chicago does not have a good balance between classic and modern like NYC does. Chicago's post-modern architecture is better. I think many believe Chicago to have a better skyline than NYC because each building in Chicago has its own identity and has its own beauty. But NYC has a certain level of grandeur with ESB, Chrysler, etc. that Chicago doesn't.

Yup. We had a height limit during the era of ESB and Chrysler, so that's unfortunate, but there's still plenty to be enjoyed.

Right now, it's Chicago for me. I also love Vancouver's skyline because I <3 Glassy skyscrapers.

Anyways, what do you guys think of Panama City's skyline?

You think Cincinatti has a better skyline than Boston?
