Nyc has the best skyline in the world with a combo of quantity and quality. Nyc has more notable skyscrapers than both chicago and hong kong. I couldnt tell you the name of a scraper in hong kong and neither could any one else get outta here with that ish.

I do agree the Spire looks kind of misplaced...
NYC has the best skyline RIGHT NOW
But I do think Chicago has a brighter future and Miami is second.


San Fransisco is just boring to me..

NYC's skyline right now is that almost every single building is about 400 ft. tall. And only 1 building really stands out. The Empire State building. If you where to drive through NYC, and look up all the buildings would look the same height wise. when all these (supposedly) great skyscrapers are finished then the entire skyline will shift up 400 ft. and no building will stand out. what i'm saying is that in 2014 NYC will look uglier than ever.

Please don't get mad. I'm just stating my opinion.

Chicago rocks!!!!!

As for the best future skyline Dubai won. Don't argue it because you all know it is true. And please take Vancouver and San Diego out of the picture because they are no where near Chicago, and Dubai.
