That's all.
Population? Yes. Skyline? No. Sorry, its just not aesthetically pleasing like Chicago's, despite its immense size.

Well, Steve-o, most would disagree with you on that.

New York's skyline is larger, more famous and more beautiful than that of Chicago. Sorry.

Yes its larger and more famous, but that doesnt make it BETTER or MORE BEAUTIFUL. Is Chase Field "better" than Wrigley Field just because its bigger?

New York's skyline, view form many places, looks like a bunch of Lego bricks. Chicago doesn't have the bulk that New York does and it has change in height of the skyline.

The four tallest buildings in that picture are all proposed ones. They stick out. Also, the one second from the left looks like four Smurfit Stone Buildings put together.

The rest look fine but putting them all right by each other isn't the best move. It's four "futuristic" buildings (for lack of a better term) surrounded by much older ones.
Get your facts straight. If the freedom tower is suppose to be completed at least by 2011 that means they started building it already. check the official website
|| World Trade Center ||
Also it does not stick out, because that would be like saying the twin towers sticks out but it looked fine
