It's part of the Duke Energy Convention Center, built in 2006.

A less common view of NYC showing the Lincoln Tunnel exit in the foreground and the soon to be replaced Port Authority Bus Terminal on the left. Not the nicest part of Manhattan imo but it makes for an interesting photo.

I'd posit that it's probably hard to get widespread consensus on this. People have different definitions as to what makes a "great" skyline. For me, the natural setting is an equally important component. I personally love skylines like Seattle's that incorporate both water and mountains. Living in Chicago, the skyline is certainly smaller than NYC's - but I think it is more dynamic and visually interesting. I also love skylines like Minneapolis that are architecturally varied (obviously) but also extremely well ordered with a natural pinnacle. A great skyline also needs diversity in heights and colors. So while San Diego and Vancouver have a lot of tall buildings, there is a plateau effect and a uniformity of color (especially with Van) that drops their ranking in my opinion. In fact, I'd rate Calgary above Vancouver and (personally) Chicago and Toronto over NYC.
