Chicago looks more modern and it far more scenic (at least for panoramas) than New York.
Chicago from the late 1980s to the mid 2000s was the undisputed height capital of the skyscraper world. Now Dubai is height city. New York will probably never beat Dubai in supertall height or quantity, but it will in supertall quality (and come real close in quantity too!)

This view of Chicago is probably the best skyline view in the world. The aesthetic beauty and balance of it all is unmatched, it is one of those few times where you can say that a skyline's design is absolutely perfect.

Not sure who took this photo, but from this angle the Trump tower is possibly my favorite skyscraper. It looks amazing from almost every angle but this angle is absolutely incredible



Such an stunning addition to the skyline, especially with a pinnacle measurement of 423 meters
