Denial of what? All I was pointing out was that in the first pic it looks similar and has the same random slant in the shot.

In the second picture you have the tallest building off to the right, and there are a lot of apartment buildings in the foreground with a street that starts at bottom center right and then curves off to the right about halfway up.

Chill out.

Also, NYCBoy, the Sears Tower, along with the Hancock and Aon Center, also stuck out when they were being built. But now, they seem to blend in with the skyline.
Yeah but the skyline wont look good if u have buildings reaching For 2000 ft, but since there wont be a mass change it will stick out for a long time

I think Chicago has a more aesthetically pleasing skyline--but maybe that is due to the fact that you can see the skyscrapers a bit better than Manhattan. Midtown has so many skyscrapers hidden amongst the canyons--and all bunched together--that the skyline looks very lopsided almost. I love NYC's skyline though--but Chicago's is more evenly distributed and pleasing to the eye.

No, I didn't say New York's skyline is better because it's larger.

I said New York's skyline is more BEAUTIFUL, not to mention larger and more famous. To my eyes, Chicago's skyline is certainly not as beautiful as New York's and most people would agree with me on that.

New York is the definition of skyline.
