Why are the Mexico City pictures always low resolution? Aren't there any good pictures of this fantastic skyline?

1. Chicago
2. New York
3. Toronto
4. Seattle
5. Los Angeles
6. Houston
7. San Francisco
8. Miami
9. Vancouver
10. Dallas

Honestly, I'm not sure about anything after the first three.

Come to think of it, which world cities have denser cores than them?
Hong Kong is significantly denser than New York, for starters. Comparable cities in terms of density off the top of my head would be:
  • New York: Tokyo, Seoul, Shanghai, Beijing, Bangkok
  • Chicago: Paris, Toronto, Melbourne, Singapore, San Francisco
Honestly, Chicago isn't that dense, but its skyline is highly centralised. Toronto's rate of growth in the core will result in it surpassing Chicago over the next decade at a conservative estimate.

Brooklyn actually looks pretty nice in that aerial. Very green. At first glance I thought it was anywhere but NYC!

Maybe it's just me but I can't get over how much Brooklyn reminds me of Philadelphia. The skylines are roughly the same size, the proximity of townhouses to downtown, the piers, etc.

So? It's his list of his favourite skylines in North America, which is what this thread is about. You've repeatedly listed London as your favourite European skyline loads of times in other threads.
What's the difference? Can you explain what you mean?

Because there are nine other spots in a top ten list? Theres nothing wrong with thinking that Chicago has the nicest skyline in North America. One could certainly make a strong argument in favor of that statement. Your post really makes no sense...

I think there are rather a lot of people who find Chicago's skyline to be the best in North America.

DCFC1 is just being a prick. Can't blame him really, it's the only thing he knows how to do. Every post is an antagonistic, whiny, bitchfest.
