Not even close.

Hong Kong has too many similar boring apartments. way too many. And those night Neon lighting on every scraper is just to mask. HK has great setting like you said. But definitley not the best skyline clearly.

On the other hand, NYC is so unique, historic and like no city on planet literally. Historic skyline, extremely versitile skyline, and real iconic suspension bridges, each a story onto itself.

Now just compare these NYC iconic bridges to 2 tooth-picks bridge HK built in one corner. you get the picture.

NYC is the only city that is cut above the rest. Dubai is literally an oasis in the desert now. Both more impressive than HK.

I feel the same way too.But if you're talking skyline Singapore has also a really amazing one with a balance of everything and not just a dense cluster of skyscrapers.I also feel London skyline don't get as much love due to it having less tall skyscrapers.I love how of an organized mess London skyline is while NY is chaotic but in a good way.

across the border, Shenzhen, currently doubling NYC's skyline, at one end of the world's largest contiguous city (pop 41 million, 55 million metro, not including HK).





(The skyline in the background is still Shenzhen)

The only place that can give the PRD a run for its money is Shanghai. Interesting fact: its old building stock covers an area nearly the size of
the City of Paris' old stock, and includes 4 Old Towns.
