Or post a real picture if you can see your skyline from your home. Idk if anyone will do this because of how long it takes, but if you want to, go on google earth, put on 3D buildings, zoom into your home and angle the view to see how far away or close up your skyline looks if you were able to see through all the obstacles in the way. Take a screen shot of it and post it. Here is mine for an example

Orlando (about 10 miles away)

Nice thread idea, I will post mine but I have to hover over Manhattan (and surrounding areas like Brooklyn & Jersey City) for a while so all the buildings load lol.

Default New York City



The NYC Skyline looks so tiny in this pic.

Midtown Manhattan (on the right) and Lower Manhattan (on the left) are separate skylines but that gap seems slightly too short (then again I am about 15 miles away lol), I don't think every single thing loaded though.

In reality the only buildings in Manhattan I could see were the Twin Towers (even at about 15 miles away they were huge) but they aren't there anymore so the rising Freedom Tower will be in our view soon. Too bad the whole NYC skyline is blocked by buildings.
