Skyscrapers are breathtaking, but the New York Public Library looks like it will be there for the next 5,000 years. That's impressive.

Sears Tower is very impressive, it looks even higher than Taipei 101 for me. Its domination on the city is very accentuated

The Guggenheim Bilbao and I'm not sure which my favorite skyscraper is, but one of them is Turning Torso in Malm÷, Sweden. I guess I like the Chrysler Building a lot too...

What is Vasco da Gama Tower in Lisbon, Portugal used for? Is it just an observation tower, or does it have telecommunications equipment as well?

For me, Taipei 101 since it's so original, or 2IFC

Empire State Building.

It was built in 1931 and is still one of the Ten Tallest in the world today. Insanely impressive. Just think about it... that's preposterous.

The Empire State Building. As far as I know, it's the only historical-style supertall building in the world. It was ahead of its time. Now, it's timeless. For a building to unequivocally dominate and reign supreme over New York's incredible skyline, that building absolutely must be superlative in every respect. The ESB most certainly is.
