Either way, Toronto's skyline is pretty impressive these days, and it's astonishing how much it's grown recently.

I'm trying to find as good a vantage point for NYC, thru GSV.  It is hard to capture both Midtown and Downtown in one shot.  Another issue that probably impacts Manhattan is that the "Valley" (between Canal and 14th) doesn't have many tall buildings at all.  Kind of view them as being separate high rise CBDs.

I'll ask around on the Northeast Roads forum.  I'm sure someone there has a good impressive photograph of Manhattan's skyline as viewed from a highway.

There's a view that doesn't suck from the New Jersey Turnpike, but I don't recall if it's both Downtown and Midtown.  The location I am thinking of might just be Midtown

There's a thread open on the Northeast forum now so please go there (:

Toronto still sprawls like crazy though despite that

Not really surprising. The biggest cities tend to have both the most impressive skylines and the most sprawl. It actually goes together and is to be expected when you think about it.

Evening view looking southerly from the King Road overpass along the 400.  The northbound HOV still has yet to open to traffic:
