Everyone knows that NYC boasts the nation’s tallest buildings. But it’s not just quality (i.e. height) that NYC excels at, it’s quantity. Compared to the rest of the nation, NYC has more skyscrapers than the next 10 states combined.

New York has 6,229 high-rise buildings. Compare that to, say, Chicago, which has just 1,180, according to HighRises.com.

HighRises.com broke down the data into an easy-to-read visualization of the United States by the tallest building that exists in each state. It also visualizes the United States “to scale” by the height of that tallest building. Check it out below:
