DISCUSS: *** World's Best Skyline ***

Discuss this week's topic here.

But please note - if you post too many images, I will delete them all. Try to have some consideration for people with slower Internet connections and/or slower computers, otherwise the thread becomes unreadable.

Let's make some bets:
The poll choices will be HK, NYC, and Chi

Then it'll end up:
New York-45%
Hong Kong-35%
Chicago-20%

Why discuss something that has been discussed so many times before?

Lets use something like best skyline outside USA and China.

i honestly think toronto is one of the best and soon to be the best, its not height, mass or over all quantity of skyscrapers that do it for me, the skyline has to have a distinctive shape and look to it and i think Toronto's is amazing looking, it looks planned the way it is laid out and isnt as random as NewYork or sydney, and yes i am an artist so i see things differently then allot of other people.

i think an underdog should win this. ie Toronto

NY beats HK because it has the classical alure of a skyline. With a blend of old and new skyscrapers into one. HK is modern, and its buildings looks similar to a majority of the buildings around the world

I think that Hong Kong is going to win this over NYC by a small margin. Personally, I like both about the same.

I prefer Chicago because of some of its buildings and the way it looks when seen from Lake Michigan.

NYC's skyline is old...but unlike HK, it has old skyscarpers and new glass beauties too..whereas HK has same kinda of skyscarpers....either the tall white appartment buildings or a tall glass building....new york has a variety and has every kind of skyscarper....so yeah...NYC RULES ! HK is still nice tho

I honestly think NY's skyline is pretty much a majority of brown skyscrapers of roughly the same shape.....
