Philly is coming up fast with proposed projects such as the American Commerce Center which would be taller than the Sears Tower. Not to mention that amazing Comcast skyscraper philly is currently building.

New York City doesn't have much height these days compared to a city like Chicago who is currently building 4 or 5 skyscrapers over 1,000ft tall such as the Trump Tower, Chicago Spire, Waterview Tower, ect.

I would rate it:

1) NYC
2) Philly
3) Pittsburgh
4) Boston

Wrong! NYC has a few 1,000 footers coming on line. And why mention Chicago on this thread when we are discussing the NE? What grade are you in? BTW- Where's Baltimore????

ACC will only be taller to its spire. to the top floor, it won't be ANYWHERE NEAR sears. The Spire is about 1/5 or the building, although the building looks awesome, the spire is a bit oversized imho. Comcast's exterior is complete btw. And NY is coming on Strong with height with proposals. There are more 300 + meter proposals in NY than Chicago.

that is false. the tallest building currently proposed in new york city is not even 300 meters and that is 99 church street. chicago's tallest proposed is the Waldorf-Astoria at 386 meters. where did you get your information from? better yet, name the towers in nyc that are proposed and 300+ meters tall, if you can.

At1,

Your inferiority complex is evident. I told you to do a search. Did you even look at the NYC development plans on the other thread? Chicago's skyline is one of the greatest in the world but you don't have to sh*t on NYC to prove that fact. I like the view of Chicago's skyline in the city proper but NYC'S sheer massiveness can't be matched, especially when you view it from the outer burroughs or the Jersey Turnpike.
