Please don't ruin this thread by doing this. Chicago's skyline doesn't have many angles to begin with. No matter from which standing point you are looking, you essentially get more or less the same buildiings. The scale of NYC and Chicago are not comparable. This is an appreciation thread, so let's appreciate.

No weak angles on either skyline IMO but I created this thread for the purpose of appreciation. Constructive criticism is welcomed but let's try and keep it at a positive level.

No, YOU don't even. I've been very active in getting NYC vs Chicago bs pretty civil on threads such as these. I asked a legitimate question. It seems pretty valid that many people find NYC's lower Manhattan skyline pretty weak from some angles. I simply asked if others find some angles of Chicago lacking. It's called constructive criticism. How can you improve if you don't know where you are lacking? I was in no way insinuating that because some angles make NYC's skyline look weak that Chicago is "better", or vice versa.

And, no, Chicago does have many angles, from the East (Lake), West, South, North, and Northeast notably.

From south


From north

Good pictures, but you can see that view whenever you want at the Top of the Rock. Not sure what you mean by "not often seen?"
