most of these cities have a faux skyline. Meaning...they only look big in pictures but in reality they have a very few tall buildings.

Only cities like NYC, Chicago, Shanghai, Dubai, and Tokyo qualifies to be a SSC.

I think that Chicago, the birthplace of the skyscraper and home to so many of them deserves the title
