Comparing NYC to Chicago is like comparing Chicago to Minneapolis, purely by size.

Philadelphia has the size of Tulsa or Louisville skyline, and Pittsburgh, Denver and Minneapolis deserve honorable mentions for its skyline reflecting the size of the cities.

Philly's skyline completely dwarfs Tulsa and Louisville...they are not even in the same league. Pittsburgh, Denver and Minneapolis all have good skylines, but not as massive as Philly's. A quick look at the numbers and you will see.

Btw, San Jose's skyline is an embarrassment for a city of nearly 1 million people.
