Chicago is on a whole different level, IMHO!

And here's the proof.

Chicago's skyline has long been fabulous. It's on another level compared to almost every skyline in North America, but not all of them. We'll have to disagree on that point.

There's nothing wrong with a healthy difference of opinion, especially on a topic as subjective as city skyline favourites. That said, I'm not sure we're all that far apart on our skyline preferences.

The Empire State building almost seems to be shrinking, but it's the skyline that's growing.

It speaks to the scale of the ESB that it took this long. Our 1920s-30s buildings have been hidden behind taller modern buildings for decades now.

I just realized, after reading this thread that the Cityscapes and Skyline Photos sub-forum would probably be a more logical home for all of these "best skylines" threads. I do quite prefer to have these threads here, but it has always struck me as a bit odd that skyline photo threads are in the "Skyscrapers" section.

this used to be called the "Hall of Fame" section, hence all of the "Best ___ " threads.

Grand Lisboa Hotel is so.. distracting, to put it nicely.

Hong Kong is just amazing as always.

and

New York is insane with all the construction.. just wished Brooklyn had a more visually appealing skyline. Hopefully 9 Dekalb will start rising soon and balance out the skyline
