Really tough to get a good photo of just Manhattan's skyline in one photo, let alone including Brooklyn, but this is pretty good.

Shanghai has so much smog and air pollution its ridiculous. It was hard to see 2 buildings away sometimes when I was there. People complain about Bangkok, but in that respect bangkok is 10 times better.

Shanghai's skyline is really nice but if you look at everything on the right of Shanghai tower
you will see those super dull benidorm-like buildings that look really sad and blocky.
Something that I see in every major Chinese city's skyline

New article came out in the news today

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-china-19264601

Looks like they are going to build a wonderful skyline here too, will probably become a hub for the region alongside Urumqi

That telecom tower would look much better if they hadn't painted the top red and white. It looks like a candy cane.
