You are right, but as long as is just imposible to find out the world`s best skyline because is a question of personal likes and dislikes. I would say that the most skylines we add to the thread the better, so we all can enjoy skyscrapers and skylines.

No, what a bizarre thing to say! Dubai has about 100 buildings that make a visual impact. Madrid has 4. Do you not see that sea of huge buildings in Dubai beyond the Burj Dubai?

With the exception of Minneapolis and Pittsburgh, those US cities don't have noteworthy skylines either. What does this have to do with US cities though?

Madrid's one of the best cities in the world at street level, but has only recently started building skyscrapers. The skyline may look large to a Spaniard, but to people who've grown up in cities with tons of towers, all we see right now is 4 significant towers and a couple smaller ones here and there. Madrid will probably have a great skyline down the road, but it doesn't right now.

That critique doesn't make any sense. A skyline of any city is mostly the CBD, not the suburbs. Toronto's CBD isn't 4 buildings, and can stand up all by itself without what lies beyond it.

Northern skyline? What does North York or Yonge/Eglinton have to do with this? Toronto's downtown core beyond the CBD has tons of buildings in the 50 m - 200 m range, Madrid does not.

Spanish companies and foreign offices in Madrid (large and small) are developed horizontally in most cases, the pattern here is the reverse of the American... Dense residential areas and scattered business areas.

Yes, I know. Office and residential towers were a concept that grew out of New World countries. Canada, Australia, and the United States had decades head start on the rest of the world when it comes to skyscrapers.

Away from the famous skylines (from CWB to Central) there are other skylines in Hong Kong.

E.g the West of Hong kong island. On the left you see some of the famous tall buildings.

Now that i have seen Manhattan with my own eyes i definately can say that this is by far the best skyline on earth. Just the view from the rockefeller is evidence enough, u have like 10000 different styled scrapers, everywehere packed together, so many colors, and the older buildings are so beautiful when seen in person.

I would personally have to say the Manhattan skyline is the best, being a new yorker myself, but I haven't really examined Shanghai and Hong Kong's skylines. I've seen some buildings there, just not the entire skyline, so I have a feeling how good they are.
