You don't need to show me La Défense. I know what it looks like!It may be your opinion. But it looks a bit like a childish "there has to be a European city otherwise I will be envious"-behaviour! I did not say LD was not impressive or beautiful. I only said it cannot concur NYC or Chicago,...

NYC has the best skyline followed by everyone else.

Its the hanging suspension bridges all over the city that enhances NYC skyline. no other city has that. none. NYC beats everyone. All NYC needs a one space needle.

Sorry, but one thing I don't like about such threads is the imagespamming! Why posting 100 photos, 99 of them not showing skylines, but single buildings, if the topic is skylines. Isn't it enough to post 3 or 4 photos?

However, i do believe it's the biggest in the english speaking world.

sorry, we're not talking about height or size, we're talking about aesthetics, which NY beats SH by a landslide imo.
