But it is the latest list considering we have to wait until the end of the year before we get a 2014 list. We might not be able to keep Chicago in the top 10, unless they start building a lot more.

This is a mathematical attempt to rate the impressiveness of skylines, not aesthetics. If we were going by height, there would be no thread because we would have the answer to 'best' skyline. But, there is no real answer!

And that's why I said considered!

You could have a skyline with great height, but with little density to match the height (Dubai) or you could have great density, but not much height (Sao Paolo). The list above also shows Miami to be third in the U.S. behind New York and Chicago with the number of tall buildings overall, but several U.S. cities have buildings that are taller. The Shanghai skyline is huge, but very spread out while New York has density to go with height in Manhattan.

Oh I see. I guess I just don't think Impressive is the same as 'best'. I think Pittsburgh is more attractive than many cities toward the top of that list for example!

"Impressive" can be just as subjective as "best" depending on what most impresses an individual. For instance, the above referenced list, even though it places Miami third in the U.S. and in front of Houston. Houston still has more buildings over 200 meters tall outside of New York and Chicago, but many of Houston's tall buildings are spread throughout the city, giving Miami a more dense downtown skyline. Pittsburgh is more aesthetically appealing to you. In that regard, some people would place San Francisco 3d in the U. S. behind New York and Chicago. Seattle scores big in the U.S. and is often placed 3rd behind New York and Chicago. Singapore has no supertalls, but was in the top 10 for many years and now is placed 11th in the world by the above referenced list with nothing over 919 feet tall because of height restrictions.
