My guess is that the picture is taken from the George Washington bridge. Fits the vantage point, plus the picture is titled "view from the bridge".

I really like this angle of NYC. It looks like a continuous skyline all the way from Midtown to Jersey City! Almost as if the Hudson was not separating Downtown from Jersey!

this is a great vantage point for a photo. CTF Guangzhou and Canton Tower are amazing. The bridge is... unique but not to my tastes.

Indeed that shot of New York is from the George Washington Bridge. It's changed a lot lately with 1WTC, One56 and 432 Park. It also shows off Jersey City's skyline nicely.

Here's another shot from the same angle.

Shanghai is top1 world now on my personal list, although Pudong looks a little unbalanced now.

^ For now the skyline sure is pretty good. The thing is, Shanghai kind of reached its peak. There's only one other supertall (Sinar Mas Center, 320m) besides Shanghai Tower, and it's nearly topped out. I'm not saying that there won't be any major skyscraper / supertall construction in the future, but in the next couple of years the skyline won't change that much.

New York and Shenzhen (along with some other Chinese cities) on the other hand will make a huge leap forward. I'm pretty sure it will be an epic battle between those two cities regarding the best skyline.
