I care!! Makes a city look very nice with a colorful skyline. They don't have to be huge, look at Phoenix, there's is hideous.

Well, Albuquerque's skyline is just as boring as Phoenix's I think, but that's ok by me. Can't judge a city by the skyline. Look at LA and Houston. Far better skylines but dead downtowns.

ABQ is modeled after Phoenix, both downtowns arn't anything to brag about.

^Care to elaborate on how ABQ's downtown is modeled after Phoenix?

Albuquerque's downtown is far from where it needs to be. However, let's put this in perspective. Albuquerque is less than 1/5th the size of Phoenix, but arguably ABQ's downtown is as active or more active than Phoenix's.

I was talking about the city as a whole, not just downtown, ABQ seems to be following the mistakes of Phoenix, the small downtown or lack of downtown I should say, the sububan feel of the city and the cookie cutter homes that keep sprawling out further and further. Does anyone see this?

yes, it is frightning that ABQ appears to be modeled after PHX and you keep up the bragging, you might actually convince someone that we have a decent downtown.
