They all look the same to my mind ...

But Chicago is beautiful due to the Willis Tower.
And NYC, of course.

Similar in the sense they're both compact and have a mountain backdrop, but yes, Calgary has the better skyline imo

Toronto's looking impressive. Even from those lake shots that don't show ~75% of the skyline...

That tower was supposed to have a twin. A new supertall is on the drawing boards so hopefully it won't be alone much longer...

I've always found that these 2 photos in sequence illustrate the depth of the Toronto skyline inland:

An old one (Trump, Shangri-La, L Tower, AURA missing) looking south towards the CBD:

.....and the skyline going the other way towards Yorkville and beyond:
