Wow.... Nygirl, Desertpunk, et al... thanks for all the amazing images... I just went thru all of them "Koyyanisqatsi" style at a high rate of speed... and will have to come back again and again to absorb all the beautiful images.

Other cities in the world may start getting beatiful modern skylines to try to rival both NYC and Chicago, but both those cities have a rich tapestry of buildings of 12 decades (or more) of varied architectural styles blended together to make what is and may always be unique in the world.

No other cities in America can come close... regardless of how their skylines are rated or what the future will bring... what took over a century of progress just won't exceed what these 2 magnificent cities have put together.

Sadly, in the name of progress, a few of the gems in both cities have been torn down for "progress". One area is movie palaces. NYC lost its' greatest palaces along Broadway... the Roxy, the Capitol, Loew's State and Loew's 72nd. The corporate wizards in the Paramount Building couldn't save the gem of the Broadway Paramount Theatre, as it was disemboweled with the marble and ornate plaster ripped out for more office space... all sad losses. Only a later rebuild by the World Wrestling Federation (WWF) reconstructed the beatuiful window in the Paramount, today used as the NYC Hard Rock Cafe.

In Chicago, more desecration took place for old massive movie palaces... the Paradise (considered having the worlds most beautiful theatre exterior), the Marbro, the Tivoli, the Granada, the Southtown, the United Artists and Roosevelt were all destroyed for other uses (the worst being parking lots).

I guess rather than lament what was lost (such as some of Sullivan & Adler's buildings in Chicago, the old Marshall Fields, the Penn Station in NYC, etc)... we should probably be happy for what has survived. In NYC it's amazing that all 5 of the outlying Loew's Wonder Theatre's are still standing, and are almost all restored. In Chicago... the massive Uptown is still awaiting a rebirth.

So much has been brought down, but both Chicago and NYC are still thriving and have healed the scars of the lost masterpieces.....

The Chicago skyline fits together much better than New York's skyline, imo. I dunno, the buildings just interfere with each other less.

But it's kinda hard to compare your #1 and #2 top skylines...
