Having a lot of technological firms around does not necessarily signal futurism, since the way their sprawling campuses are built may encompass very backward and unsustainable planning concepts.

Dubai is a good one too, another style, so is Tokyo. Anyway, people confuse futurism with modernity. New York might be modern, but it is not futuristic at all, rather classy, too 20th Centurish.
NY futurism partly lies with the new projects and developments happening such as The Freedom Tower, etc.

Does Freedom Tower incorporate revolutionary designs for the next generation of environmentally-friendly skyscrapers?

Taking HKSkyline's format,

1) Modernity - Tokyo
2) Street scene - Tokyo
3) Architecture - Dubai
4) Fashionable - Tokyo
5) Floor planning - Tokyo
6) Surrounding environment - Tokyo


We must distinguish between the most 'futuristic' city ( Tokyo ) and the city with the best skyline ( Hong Kong )

Why's that? It's very high-tech and for a north american city, it looks very futuristic.
