Chicago can easy be considered with solid arguments as World's Best Skyline (unlike many other cities in this tread )

Sure, it did lost many positions on size and height, but density and maturity make up for it.

Also think is more esthetic than NY, even if NY have more (and better) buildings.

I always say Chicago is super underrated. Having seen it in person it's not that much less impressive than NYC or Shanghai (the two other big ones I've personally seen). It is a significantly smaller city than those though so that might be part of it.

I don't think Chicago will drop out of the top 10 however considering a boom is starting. There are 3 potential supertalls we know of before the decades end plus a bunch of 150-250 meter buildings. That might not be as much action as some cities but the skyline is already big/tall enough that it's enough to keep it in the top 7 or 8 IMO.

The fact that I see more Singapore/Bangkok/KL photos in this thread than Chicago means there is something wrong with the world. I'm not trying to hate on those cities either, they're okay, I just personally find them overrated.

Most forumers put Chicago in their top 5. i dont know if that's underrating. but personally i would put it above Dubai, Tokyo and even Shanghai for its aesthetic value. but shanghai is massive so...
Singapore and KL deserve to be mentioned here. so nothing wrong with the world. if they are posted here often, that's because there are Singaporean and Malaysian forumers that are active contributors. could use some moderation though. if you want to see more photos of Chicago, nobody's stopping you from posting here. i see Chicago posted here quite often anyway so i dont know what you're talking about.

My list for now:
1. New York
2. Hong Kong
3. Shanghai
4. Chicago
5. Shenzhen/ Guangzhou
6. Tokyo/ Dubai
7. Singapore
8. Kuala Lumpur
9. Manila/ Bangkok
10. Chongqing
