It was a gentlemen's agreement not to build anything higher than the 548 ft. City Hall. That was broken in 1985 with One Liberty Pl. and numerous taller towers have gone up since in the western half of Center City. Developers still abide by the old limit east of Broad Street.

These are a few screenshots i just made from the movie 'Training Day'.
I remembered how i always used to like the skyline of L.A from this point of view.

Are there more pictures out there from this vantagepoint?

^ That is by far the best vantage point I've seen of the Los Angeles skyline. That same shot at night would be killer.

Fantastic Manhattan photo. There really isn't anything in the world quite like it.
