I like black for skyscrapers, especially black glass and steel. Modernist boxy towers by van der Rohe are fine buildings for example.
Chicage in general has just lots of great black buildings.

IBM Plaza, Chicago.


Chicago Federal Center



But also curved towers look good in black.

Harbor Point and Lake Point Tower, Chicago.

^^ Not to mention the largest collection of Mies buildings in the world. There are 6 structures in total, although only the first 3 structures were part of Mies' original plan. The first tower built in the TD Centre complex is 47 years old and still looks spectacular and elegant. Here's a better shot of them. As you can see, the complex is undergoing a paint job:
