Doesn't Singapore have a good observation deck from a skyscraper? I just don't want to see a ferris wheel in a skyline at all. London got knocked down a couple notches in my eyes when theirs went up. People make fun of Las Vegas for its tacky vulgarity, but a ferris wheel isn't much different.

I do like Singapore's skyline a great deal, but wish that ferris wheel would just go away. Singapore's a big sophisticated city, not an amusement park/resort.

Ah I see haha

Here is a pic of Singapore Flyer, it give a different angle of observation deck as there is no skyscraper on its surrounding and you get to see wide skyline of Singapore. Moreover to me personally it does add some excitements to the skyline as this flyer keep on changing colour and every time I drive through, I will always paid a few seconds of attention to the beautiful flyer

You had too many photos of individual buildings and interiors.

If classic skylines like New York and Toronto entertain the idea I'd be just beside myself.
Ferris wheel is indeed tacky...looks so childish and silly

That first photo of Chicago is from a nice, rarely seen angle.
