Hong Kong, then comes NYC

Believe it or not Sao Paolo, Brazil has a nice skyline also. This city has the most amount of buildings. They just are not as tall as Hong Kong or NYC, but tall enought.

i like Hong Kong the most of those listed. It's not one of the choices, but I've always found Sydney's skyline to be phenomenal. Much like Seattle, Vancouver or San Francisco, it's not so much the buildings themselves, but the natural setting and the presence of unique buildings like the Opera House, that make it remarkable.

I think Shanghai's already impressive skyline, will be one of the world's best (or at least biggest) in 10-15 years.

For me New York and Chicago but to choose one would be New York but give Chicago another 10yrs and I reckon the skyline will be outstanding with all the new projects planned.
