Given our growing obsession with skyscrapers–and our growing collection of them–we’re pleased to find that New York City has more skyscrapers than the next 10 skyscraper-boasting cities–combined. The infographic from highrises.com (h/t TRD) shows that NYC has 6,229 high-rise buildings, while Chicago has just 1,180, and second-most-populous Los Angeles a mere 518.

The chart above represents the figures for each city as one big, bad skyscraper, which, in the case of NYC is One World Trade, of course. 6sqft recently reported that 2016 was a world-record year for tall buildings in NYC, with 128 buildings 200 meters/656 feet or higher built, and more on the way in 2017.
