There's no competition to NY, it's the most diverse, there's history in it and it's the only skyline that has it!

Look at New York's first picture, that's CLASS. You look at hong kong and think "wow cool" but New York gives you a certain feeling when you see it, a feeling that no other skyline can possibly give you.

If skylines were paintings New York would be Mona Lisa. Hong kong, shanghai, dubai and all these other cities are pretty...but they're not masterpieces.

I love the skyline of Sydney. Very promising.

10 Years ago I would have easily said New York but we are 2009 now and I miss some modern buildings in the skyline + the 'impressiveness' like HK has now is a bit gone. The most impressive skyline now is Hong Kong but Syndey and Singapore are more beautiful. So Sydney or Singapore mhmhmhmhm I'll vote for Sydney because of the beautiful surroundings (islands, lot's of greenery etc...)

If you think it can't come worse, it does.

BTW: of course I vote for FRANKFURT!

Hong Kong is spelled wrong, therefore it should be eliminated from the poll. BTW where's Essen?

Essen is in Germany. It often doesn't get much attention, but it's the central city of the Ruhr, and forms Germany's largest agglomeration at 5.3 million. Other notable cities in the Ruhr are Duisburg and Dortmund. Dusseldorf is just to the south.

For me the best skyline and city is New York, but talking only about beauty, not height or density, I love Sydney and Vancouver

The contrast here is interesting: The city combines low-rise, high-density traditional European architecture (some of which is over 1,000 years old), with modern towers that stick out like sore thumbs. The Commerzbank Tower is often ranked as one of the best skyscrapers in the world, amongst polls and experts alike.
I'm sorry, but I have to disagree strongly with that. Cities like London, Paris, Warsaw and indeed Moscow, have fantastic skyscrapers and fantastic skylines, with many interesting skyscrapers completed or under construction.
