One feature which movies often use to inform us as to the location  of the film is the city's skyline. Even before movies were made, however, the skyline of a city was one of its most important assets.

The new developments in steel production enabled builders to build ever taller buildings. The major cities of New York and Chicago were particularly noted for their impressive skylines.
