that's one of the rare few excellent photos of KL's skyline which isn't ruined by a watermark.

I would like to see some more shot's with the full Chicago skyline. Most of the shots are of the CBD and leave out the great wall of Chicago stretching along the coast.

For those who are into the Manhattan-style of skyline with skyscrapers of different architectural styles and eras, I think Chicago is the only close rival to Manhattan.

These two cities are very similar in terms of skyline, architectural heritage, etc. I recommend that anybody interested in these two cities check out the following thread - I maintain it regularly and the goal is to showcase images that portray how similar these two metropolises are. Check out the last 20 pages of the thread or so!

It should be noted that lots of cities built high rises from 1880 till present but Chicago and New York built theirs taller than the others as they were the 2 biggest cities (of those erecting tall buildings) by a long shot. That architectural heritage is still on display in Philadelphia, Boston, Cleveland, Detroit, Montreal, Toronto, Melbourne, etc. Their historic towers are just much shorter, usually under 200m.
