The brownish look of NYC's skyline is really boring , NYC should build more colourful skyscrapers like in Asia ...

I think the brownish look makes it seem more timeless and established and makes it cohesive compared to some cities that look like they popped up overnight with buildings that have no relation to one another. There's no harm in cities having different personalities from one another anyway.

Besides I think NY is probably the last city that should be accused of needing more variety since it easily has more different types of skyscrapers of various styles, ages, sizes, colours etc. than any other city.

Brown makes the skyline special from normal white skylines

Also, it allows new development like the Hudson Yards or the WTC to stick out. Ever seen the cities night lights? It definitely looks modern and makes the city look very impressive.

Apart from the ugly brown buildings, New York has probably the best skyline in the world. Awesome height, density, quantity and the square grid is perfect setting for skyscrapers

However the brown buildings look very sterile sometimes. Just like the white buildings in Chinese skyline

I think every massive skyline has its fair share of ugly buildings. Yes, New York has those brown buildings (although many of them are really nice up close). The same could be said about the countless white/grey highrises in Hong Kong or Shanghai.

Having lived in NY for many years and visited Hong Kong for just a few days in 2012, I can say with confidence that NY doesn't have even one building as hideous as the hundreds of ugly, dirty monstrosities that I saw in HK. They may not be visible in the shiny skyline shots, but they are there virtually at every turn. That said, the HK skyline is magnificent.

Dont think singapore has any unmaintained buildings, all are clean but some may looks abit ugly as they were built many years ago. Overall Singapore has a clean skyline, it looks neat and no sign of paint fading
