Wanch, I never said I HATED mountains. I just said I don't really like them in a city background. I love mountains when there isn't a city near them to ruin the enviroment and build up all over them and then pollute them.

I don't really like beaches in a city that much. I do like Chicago's beaches though because there's great views of the skyline and it actually looked clean. Of course harbors and rivers will be polluted, how else would we trade. But mountains are probably the most beautiful natural things on the planet so keep it that way and build up somewhere else.

Me 2!
I like the skyline that has mountain in the distant background like Seattle skyline! It really gives it that extra "WOW" factor and I think that it is a boost than disturbance!
Since HK's hill setting is next to skyline, it isn't helping but what can they do!

Actually the skyline is already part of the mountains and there are hundreds of skyscrapers built on it's slopes especially residential supertalls like Highcliff or The Summit. But I kinda like it. I don't mind HK's skyline beside or part of mountains.

As for Chicago, I like it's beaches or any beaches that has fresh water

Damn, on the other angle, HK has these wow factoring shots from the hills which is a great boost for the skyline!

LOL, I think that all of our beaches are quite fresh, just not sure about the water tho..hehehe!

Yes, but I think that it is mostly for the tap water of chicagoans and some suburbanites! The water in lake michigan sometimes isn't in the safe level for swim and the life guard will close beach for good because of overwhelm algeas and bacterias in the water!

But there are still people hanging out in Chicago's beaches.

Anyway, back to the topic, right now only three cities deserve world's best skylines and we know what they are.

Yes, you are still very safe to swim, just some summer days here in Chicago gets really stinks and hot and so is the water!

Well, of course I know!

Anyway, for World's Best Skyline, the future contenders would be Dubai followed by Shanghai.

But I think Dubai will end up like Chicago in term of organization.

To Chicago is about 50 miles and to Wrigleyville(cubs game) add another 20 miles or so, but I usually going to the WS's games because it is closer to Naperville and I only have to take I-55 to get there!
