I never see anything special about Chicago's skyline. NYC looks much better, larger and impresive.

NYC's skyline looks amazing.

New York sure is better, but these photos of Chicago doesn't do justice for her skyline.

I think New York is more impressive, but Chicago's skyline is more aesthetically pleasing.

How are those photos not proper? I'm pretty sure that those photographs are Chicago. Maybe it's the side of Chicago you don't want to see? Notice that NYC photographs weren't the typical NYC photograph angles you usually see on photos either.

I like Chicago's skyline but I think NYC's skyline is more impressive and more asthetically pleasing/simulating.

You really can't say one is more impressive or better and it's really just opinion like almost everything else. These cities perfected the skyscraper and made skyscrapers what we know they are today. How many skyscrapers would be around today if Chicago didn't create em or NY never caught on and made innovations? There'd be no SSC for sure. It's basically the competition of NY and Chicago that made skyscrapers what they are today and it's why they are all around the world.

The first photo is old around '03 and the others only show a small portion of the skyline and cut off at weird angles.

All of the NYC photos I posted do not show the entire Manhattan skyline either either and are cut off.

I prefer Chicago's, but New York's should pass ahead when WTC is completed.

That rule is stupid. Why can't there be city vs city discussions? Are we little babies who need to be protected from getting our little feelings hurt? Most of us are adults and should be able to have skyline versus skyline threads on a skyscraper forum.

So weird.
