I don't know how you people can seriously post pictures of Calgary, Vancouver and especially Edmonton in a thread titled "Best North American Skyline".

Come on you guys get serious, and i'm from western Canada!

Chitown is my choice for greatest North American skyline. While it lacks the overall volume or density of NYC, It makes up for it with height, variety and great architecture.

I think Minneapolis has an excellent skyline for it's size, balanced and distinctive. Worthy of perhaps 10th place in my top NA skylines.

NYC is so powerful, i'm starting to believe that i won't change my opinion about putting NY as the no.1 skyline in north america any time soon (or for that matter in this lifetime )! i mean the new WTC is fully under way, supertalls are popping up like mushrooms (for US conditions ): C57, 15 penn, the hudson yards, tower verre, the gira sole and many more. i know chicago is considered to be a close contender, but seriously, who can stop NY? the gap between NY and chicago is just getting bigger. and about the other US and canadian cities, well let's put it that way: NY eats them for breakfast.

I agree 100%. If anything, the interesting battle in the near term will be Toronto-Chicago. That's a gap that's closing, but it will probably take another 10 years.
