To be fair, New York is seeing a whole bunch of new skyscrapers, especially in Midtown. Once the WTC redevelopment is complete, Lower Manhattan will look drastically different. For new glassy buildings, check out the New Jersey side. There are a lot of new ones from Hoboken all the way to Jersey City.

I changed my mind, NYC's is very impressive. I still think Hong Kong's is better looking (the mountain backdrop), but NYC is MASSIVE.

Chicago, I'm sorry to say, looks more like a hopped up version of other skylines, and lack thaat certain something to distinguish itself.

I love this view, though, Chicago is still high in my heart:

Chicago's density shift is very dramatic. Beyond the Loop, the heights drop so quickly especially on the west side but not as much on the north side.

I saw the thread. The images are impressive but they are not that sharp

NEW YORK for me, the skyline tells the history of the Skyscraper. And when the new World trade centre cluster is built, it will look fab
There are so many Citys that are good, not just ones with Mega tall buildings.
