Agreed. NYC has officially 7 completed supertalls (more than Hong Kong). This thread needs to be locked. There's only 1 best skyline, which is NYC

NYC has two cheatsy-spire towers though, so the competition is still there when it comes to supertalls. But in the next 5 years, NYC will completely eclipse HK in that regard.

also, this pan on wikipedia... daaaaaamn.

Quantitatively Hong Kong's skyline is massively larger than New York's, but I still prefer New York's skyline. It's not a slam dunk for #1 though. I'd put Shanghai into that mix as well. That Hong Kong photo does make one pause for thought.

I agree. The thread just needed something to spur the discussion after those amazing NYC aerials

HK will always have the advantage of density and setting that NYC won't acquire even if buildings dozens of supertalls ...
And for information , the pano is quite old of course , many parts of highrise residential developments in Kai Tak have been finished in addition of projects in Kwun Tong and Kowloon that gve even more density to this beast ...
