World Famous Cities Skyline - Part 1
The Skyline is the overall or partial view of a city's buildings and structures against the sky. It can also be described as the artificial horizon that a city's overall structure creates. Skylines serve as a kind of fingerprint of a city, as no two skylines are alike. For this reason news and sports programs, television shows, and movies often display the skyline of a city to set location. The Sky Line of New York City was a new term in 1896, when it was the title of a color lithograph by Charles Graham for the color supplement of the New-York Journal.
The Empire State Building in Chicago, the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, the Taipei 101 in Taiwan, The Petronas Tower in Malaysia and many more.. are just some of the iconic Skyscrapers / Tall Buildings that makes the world's greatest skylines what they are.
