New York

basically if new york had to give up its title as worlds best skyline, I would only be comfortable with Hong kong taking the title, since its the only one comparable.

chongqing looks like NYC????!!!

Geographically. Manhattan to be exact. But the buildings, not really.

Since NYC skyline is so massive, I think it is best viewd from an aerial POV. One can not fully appriciate the size of Manhattan from the ground.

Vancouver is a very nice skyline (and a VERY nice city), but like you said,it's not the best, and the thread is about the world's best skyline.

WOW!!! Where did you get that? So amazing! Is it possible to get that as a poster (2011-view)???
Chicago has and will ever have the most beuatiful skyline in the world! Definitly!!!

I think the spire is a contrast to all other buildings in chicago...
chicago, gotham city, dark and dangerous (Hancock-Building, Sears-Tower) and now the Tower of Freedom, the Angel-Place, white, bright and innocent :-)

Its like ying and yang. for the new era, hong kong. the old generation, New york.
hong kong looks shiny and sexy , NYC has two massive skylines with many interesting buildings.
HK has the mountains and kowloon to boost it..NYC has the views from the west/east that enhance it.
HK has supertalls with incredible shapes and size range. NYC had the size, and is working on building at least 3 300m towers

I could look at both forever.
but the feeling I get from both is much different
