I love the brownish hue of NYC's skyline. It feels warm, inviting, and has character. Quite classy, I must say.

Some of the brown buildings look really messy though, that's why some people put Chicago skyline above NYC because it doesn't have that problem

Many people find the Chicago skyline more aesthetically-appealing with the way it flows together. With the Manhattan skyline, I never did care for how everything is crammed into midtown and downtown. If there was a continous flow of buildings of relatively the same height from downtown to midtown Manhattan, I would like the Manhattan skyline much better.

That shot of NY shows off why I hate Madison Square Garden so much. Looking forward to when its lease expires.

Anyway, here's a picture I found of Battery Park City. I like this shot because it shows off the pleasing curvature where the downtown skyline meets the harbor and because it's one of the few shots I've seen that really shows off how imposing 1WTC looks in real life. Imagine sailing up to that view.

Along part of it, yes. Much of the dividing line is actually formed by Etobicoke Creek.

Thanks. I was always confused as to where the border was to the south of Pearson. I knew the airport was in Mississauga and Sherway in Etobicoke. They should have just used Etobicoke Creek all the way up as the border. Pearson airport belongs in Toronto.

Imho nyc has the best skyline on the world with hk , but i find it a bit suffocating with it's brownish dominance , it lacks really a color diversity even at night compared to other giants skylines in asia for example !

New york has a lot of older skyscraper wich gives it something extra. New skyscrapers can be found anywhere but historical not. Thats why I think NY is no1.

Thos old buildings are giving to nyc a very classy impact and an authentic side , but you cannot deny that they're responsible of this brownish color , the city really need more refreshing projects like in shanghai or hk ! And 432 park avenue won't bring what lacks to nyc .

I agree. NYC has way too many old brown buildings which don't fit well with the contemporary skyscrapers. While some people like those brown buildings for being historic, I personally dislike them. Shanghai, Hong Kong and Chicago for example have wide variety of colourful buildings, which don't give them monotonous look
For example

Another problem in nyc skyline imo is the too consequent distance between the two main areas where the skyscrapers are concentrated as you have to go very far from manhattan to take a phtoto of midtown and the south of the island together skylines , this problem is non existant in hong kong or chicago where the biggest developments are packed in the same high density area !

I've been to NYC and Chitown many times. I still prefer NYC's skyline tho.
One of my favorite spots to experience the full scale of NYC 's skyline is from Hamilton Park, Weehawken, NJ.

Hamilton Park is also a historical site.
