Seattle?
well since I'm biased I won't vote for NYC, so Hong Kong is the obvious choice. If only we could get the 2IFC, not its Mini version

There must not have been enough serious nominations, cause Seattle and Shanghai should not have been here.

Anyways, I'm inclined to vote towards New York City, so I will.

My personal favorite is Chicago followed by Hong Kong but there's no question in my mind that NYC overall has the best skyline.

I must admit, I'm very surprised Toronto didn't receive more nominations!

1) HK
2) NYC
3) Chicago

Shanghai doesn't deserve to be in the top 5 IMHO. And Seattle?! That would be lucky to get into the worlds top 20 in most people lists I think, it certainly is nowhere near a worldclass skyline.

I wouldn't say that. It's one of the best skylines in the USA, and has a superb pinnacle at the centre of its cluster with the BoA Tower.

Sorry, not to turn this into a photo thread, but you may want to replace the Seattle pic with this, it shows the whole thing:


And I request you switch this one for Shanghai--there's a lot more to it than just Pudong...


Plus the other 3 cities have panoramic reps, these 2 should too.

There's a typo on the poll... it say's 'Seattle' where it should say one of a handful of other cities.

My vote goes to Chicago, with Shanghai as a a close second. NYC is awesome, but the WTC really held everything together

*edit* Seattle does have an exceptionally picturesque skyline, but top 5? Please...

ONLY because the question was ASKED will I post a few pics. This is JUST the lakefront view as well, the skyline actually stretches way into the North.
