It could very well pan out that way. I don't see any other non-Asian cities managing to crack the top 30. London, Moscow, Melbourne, Mexico City, and Istanbul might have an outside shot. Asian skylines are growing too quickly for these cities to gain much on them.

It surprises a lot of people how far inland the core goes. Not only that but 10 km inland up in North York it starts up again with another cluster developing.

From this angle , the south kowloon's buildings form a very compact and dense cluster , it's really nice to see that HK's skyline is much more than just victoria's one !

From this angle the Kowloon skyline is, in my opinion, is better than some North American, European, and Asian cities whose countrymen boast as having one of the "world's best skylines" ..........

New York City

From Brooklyn. Note that the cluster to the right is Brooklyn's, not Midtown Manhattan! (Though you can see the top of the ESB). Brooklyn's skyline's growth has been accelerating and continues to do so. New York is no longer defined by just the midtown and downtown cluster. It now has those along with downtown Brooklyn, Jersey City, Queens, and arguably Fort Lee, NJ now as well.

Here's Midtown.

The Financial District. While New York doesn't have the height some other cities has, it makes up for it with its blend of early 20th century skyscraper architecture and contemporary architecture.

Uptown has a respectable and elegant skyline of its own.

Taken all together, I think New York strikes a nice balance between size, variety, and quality.



I must say, though, that shot of Guangzhou is stunning. Large Asian cities have made colorful skylines their signature.

It does, but the question was regarding the top 30 skylines 20 years from now. Things seem to have leveled off in Panama City and it's dropping down the rankings. It would be great if it could keep pace, but judging by what's happening elsewhere it might be a tall order.

This one would make a really nice banner for the website.

Hey Hudson11, nice pictures! Since you seem to be from the NYC area, I was wondering if you can tell me what is the New Jersey suburb to the west of the George Washington bridge? You can see it well in the last NYC picture I posted. That suburb seems to have a little skyline of its own!

It's Fort Lee, NJ. There's a whole bunch of construction going on there right now. That tall building will get a twin in Phase 2.

That's a view of Chicago that we don't see very often here!
It's show that you don't really need expensive street furniture to make a shore pleasant. Nice find
