Obviously New York will win. I'd pick London over LA though.

London has beautiful architecture, castles, and unique buildings though. LA has small downtown, but breath taking view with mountains and palm trees.

There are some skyline photos that look a bit like LA minus the mountains, taken from the Epsom Downs.

These are old pictures.
London now has many new skyscrapers and the 1 WTC in NYC is pretty much complete.

Here's an up to date view of London's skyline from the Epsom Downs (Canary Wharf is missing off to the right).

is this a joke?
Obviously NYC by 100000000000%

London could compete with Oklahoma City, maybe.

^^ Are you being serious? Really?

I think it's about time you went on my ignore list.. your posts are getting extremely tedious and irritating, with all due respect of course.

I prefer London, but I do realise most people would pick NYC. My definition of a skyline is different I guess. I love the new and old in London.
