Good points on Shenzen. It's so hard to keep track of China in general, let alone what's going on in one city in particular. Just gonna have to wait and see. Any ideas on when a new poll will be started, anyone?

The skylines of Hong Kong, Shanghai, NYC and Chicago have lasting impressions on me. Despite other cities growing bigger and taller in many ways than these cities, every time I list a top ten, these four always come up first somehow.

I couldn't agree more. These cities have a look that can't be topped by just adding more skyscrapers to other cities. It's about design, and that is something that these cities have. NY and Chicago's mix of the old and the new give them something unique, that's puts them above the others, imo. They are the cities you can't help but fall in love with, they are just so beautiful.

I feel like NYC has the best skyline in the world, especially with the buildings it is getting but I think Chicago has the most artistic, or beautiful skyline if that makes sense. The only one I wonder about in its current state is Shanghai. It's an incredible skyline no doubt, but it is lacking in density, at its center point, the Pudong district. What I am referring to is the wide streets, which does 2 things

1. It hurts the street level appearance
2. It leads to significantly fewer skyscrapers.

Shanghai has a great look don't get me wrong, but I can't help but wonder how incredible it might look if it had NY level density

I had several photos listed below, but none of them are showing up.

I feel the same way. I don't care what order your favorite four skylines are, but these four must be them. If not, you are either biased or judge on a very odd scale.

Looks like Mumbai will go from outside my global top 30 to solidly in my top 10 within a few years.

Hong Kong and Shanghai both look phenomenal. However, NYC is the only city that I've actually been to where the skyline left a striking impression on me. Especially the Wall Street area.

I Agree, the feeling of being in New York skyscraper canyons just can't be matched IMO. I think Hollywood has a big part to do with the feeling you get from going to New York though. It just makes it feel more special.

It's just a matter of time really. India is a country of 1.2 billion people and Mumbai is their Shanghai. It wouldn't surprise me if they built the largest skyline on the planet.

I wouldn't say so. Ever taken a walk through Hong Kong?

Hong Kong does have the canyon effect, but the streets don't follow a grid pattern, so unlike NYC, it doesn't seem to go as long and not as much as well.
