I don't think Cincinnati deserves the top 5 in the world. But it is a good skyline for the population and I think it's one of the best in the U.S.

There are alot of skylines that are better than Cincinnati.

If you're talking about US skylines, here's my top 5

1) NY
2) Chicago
3) Atlanta
4) San Francisco
5) Seattle

Even Los Angeles has a better skyline than Cincinnatti. Cincy lacks supertalls.

This photo from the hills of Kowloon is a far better viewpoint for Hong Kong's skyline :

The pics from NYC are awesome, but it looks very empty without the WTC (on the first pic )

NYC is the best. Read the very bottom of the page. It says "In Urbanity We Trust." NYC is the most urban. So if you're a member of this webite, NYC should be your favorite. Tokyo is too spread out.

......Who said NYC is more urban than Tokyo???? And why should NYC be our favorite if we're a member of this site. (dumb, childlish comment)
Tokyo is spread out (actually sprawling) because it has greater population, and I think Tokyo is consist of many smaller cities.

Each city has it's own aspect of urbanity. In fact I even find HK and to some extent, Tokyo more urban than NY.

NYC looks more urban than Tokyo. Tokyo might be bigger in population, but that's because it's so big in area. Anyway, this thread is about the WORLD'S BEST SKYLINE, so I shouldn't even of mentioned Tokyo at all because their skyline CANNOT compete with HK, NYC, and Chicago.

Look away from Manhattan and I'll see? Brooklyn has a skyline. And right across the river in New Jersey there's a city called Newark, which has a skyline, and there's also another city in Jersey that has a skyline and it's called Jersey City. Have you ever even been to NYC? NYC has more highrises than Tokyo. Tokyo just has a big population. Whoop dee doo! The skyline is not big at all and it's too spread out. Tokyo has one of my least favorite skylines. But that's just my opinion.
