Maybe Dubai will have the best skyline in the world in the future, but for now I only see a lot of beautiful skyscrapers but without good manners, empty, cold, do not connect, missing yet.

1) HK
2) Dubai
3) NYC

As awesome as NYC is, the skyline is not as good as HK's and I personally prefer Dubai's as the sheer amount of 300m+ buildings is ridiculous. London will definitely be up there soon (London is booming and the amount of 200m+ buildings under construction is incredible) Chicago's is Not as good as NY's though, as NYC has the chrysler building, and 1 WTC completes the lower manhattan skyline.

This incredible video shows some Hong Kong cityscape and shows what London will look like in 2 years:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w7XK73uuz_w

Seattle proves that you don't need to have a big skyline to have a great one.

Not the best, but the Toronto skyline is muscling its way into the top tier of global skylines.

For now... But seriously, amazing photo. You can see a bit of Brooklyn on the right, and Jersey City is lost in the foreground, that's pretty rare.

Yeah, it's a pretty neat angle. The GS tower in Jersey City seems to be standing right next to 4WTC and OLP.

Midtown, never ceases to amaze me...
