Hong Kong has the neon but they pull it off well, unlike Dallas.

Houston has a nice skyline with a few unique buildings. I think that's why two of them were featured here
33 World Buildings - SkyscraperPage.com

NYC I think is still the most impressive.
i do it looks modern

To make it fair. Pictures of the other skylines should be posted.

I was wondering when someone was going to say it: the BOA Plaza building in Dallas looks super tacky with the green neon outline. It's like what people in the early 80's thought the future would like. It might as well have gold glass like the Campbell Center seen in the intro for the show "Dallas". It's what I would envision if Walmart sold skyscrapers.

I think our tallest building looks pretty cool at night

This next picture was taken when it was raining at night.

Then it changes a bit during Christmas

Certainly its not the best but its nice.

Dallas's stuff might be nice if they used it only during Christmas.

Yeah, Hong Kong's skyline is an acquired taste. Must have been some kind of festival going on when that shot was taken.

I hope.

It's called "A Symphony of Lights", and apparently it is staged every night at 8:00 PM.
