I don't think that was it. At least, not the one I am thinking of. It was a thread with similar shots of NY and Chicago.

Chicago

For a while I have been saving photos from various threads on the forum of both cities. I usually use them to post in other threads and other sections but they're also perfect for this one. There are a few that are out-dated as well as other that are not exactly skyline shots but along the lines of this thread. *Please note that if a photo is not credited it is not mine nor do I know who took it.*

Hi, both cities look great.
Personally i think NYC skyline is more dense but i think Chicago's buildings look more modern.

Both cities have nice skylines, but I have to go with New York because it has FOUR different skylines (Midtown, Downtown, Brooklyn, and Long Island City). Plus, you can't beat the sheer urbanity and density of Manhattan.

Yeah but we're also drawing imaginary lines. Jersey City+ Newport and to some extent Newark are worthy of being mentioned. We live in a metro much more so than just the city and if it is about numbers than NY has several skyline other than the 4 mentioned. A linear skyline of midrise apartment blocks spans coney island. White Plaines and New Rochelle are closer to certain parts of the Bronx and then there is the stretch of Fort Lee- West NY and Hoboken.

All of those cities and seperate skylines could never hold a candle to Chicago but combined with NYC they are a significant presense.
