WOW

That first one is amazing, and the night lighting on Prudential and Trump never fail to blow me away.

Joes NYC
New York's two great strengths skyline-wise IMO are its sheer size and especially density, and the pre-World War II beauties no other city is close to matching.

Moscow could be the strong applicant for New York if not the World War 2. High-rise construction stopped in the USSR when only began. it is one more occasion to hate Hitler

I love seeing pictures of NY as much as the next guy, but this is not just a NY skyline thread, it's a a North American one. Getting 4+ posts of NY in one page is overkill. We get it, you like NY, but seriously, HK999, you need to go to the NY forums. STOP SPAMMING NY. 1 post/page is more than enough!

Instead of calling someone out for contributing to this thread in a positive manner too much in your eyes, why don't YOU post pictures of a different city, and actually contribute to this thread in a positive manner instead of complaining about someone who actually contributes?

No one is forcing you to look through this thread. Grow up.

+1 I don't see you complaining about all the pics of Chicago on this page. Oh, cause you're from Chicago? Oh, ok then.

Those are some damn good pictures you complained about too. Damn good.

Didn't realize how far the Space Needle was from the downtown core but Seattle is looking really good. I would also like to see Vancouver's skyline, I know the city gets compared as much as Chicago and Toronto (not to bring any CvC), just for comparison.

Dallas is probably my favorite Texas skyline. I know Houston has a larger skyline, but I like Dallas' compactness and find its buildings more attractive and interesting than Houston's overall.

Although Austin is getting a very impressive skyline recently from its economic and population explosion.
