The Second City

Chicago finds itself runner up again, this time in a list at diserio.com of The Top 15 Skylines in the World. While diserio mentions his urban planning background, the driving factors seem to be simply how tall and how photogenic each city's skyline is.

If Chicago could add 25 more buildings over 200 meters (656 feet) to its current crop of 19, maybe it could overtake Hong Kong at the top of the list...that is if Hong Kong would just stop building high-rises.
