Here we go
Seattle, WA (aka the greatest city ever ):
Hong Kong's is absolutely sublime
But apart from that (Not that i've ever been there but) NY's is pretty classic:
Bit of an old picture but nevertheless...
Then of course there's my beautiful hometown of Sydney:
Looking very good in the rain there might I say...
Hard to beat Tokyo for sheer gargantuan size (if not aesthetic beauty) though:
Skyines don't get any better than Cincinnati's:
Well A'dam doesn't have much of a skyline in the sense of high rise buildings.
So it really depends on which direction you're looking from as high-rise buildings are concentrated on a few places on the outskirts of the city (mostly west and southeast). The only high-rise that can be found in the actual pre-WW2 part of the city is this
A'dams highest and 2nd highest building.
BTW, I'm currently at work (for another week) in the Delta Lloyd building on the right. See me waving?
I'm biased because I live here...
St. Paul, Minnesota
Minneapolis, Minnesota (just 10 miles away)
Both skylines are visible to each other from the taller buildings, and are a short 10 minute drive from each other. On a few bridges near my home you can turn 180* and see beautiful views of each city.
Have to say, each time I see Sidney on TV it looks like a beautiful city. Should go there once. From what I hear about it I should probably move there
Sydney is definitely one of the most beautiful cities.
Paris-La Defense. OK, it's just for the sake of the thread. I prefer nature than this bunch of money obsessed scumbags !! I 'lived' there during one week, it's very weird to live next to a business center.
I am with our western neighbours on this one, I'll vote a nice park or city forest over a skyscraper anytime and there are enough cities doing well without those (Berlin for example - and another excuse for disliking Frankfurt)
But that does not make any French city more beautifull, those taller buildings are ugly as hell (very obvious when you pass marseille)
I believe that we had our bridge first syndey..This is Newcastle upon Tyne. In my humble opinion the best place in england.
San Francisco (from Mission Dolores Park)
More Seattle pics:
From, under the bridge:
WOW, there are some pretty impressive pics here on this thread. I am biased towards Chicago since that is my home, but you can't say these other pics aren't majestic in their own right. I would love to see them all in person.
(jersey city with some city called new york in the background)
(black-and-white building is my second home)
(view from my job, where i'm supposed to be working but instead post pictures of skylines...)
new brunswick, new jersey....the pharmaceutical city, home of rutgers u. and birthplace of a certain drunk, who posts on bigsoccer.
