In my opinion, San Jose has one of the best skyline. Look at hawkeyeaerial.com and go to photography stock and click on San Jose. It's dense and fully developed!

Oh my goodness, you know I was just looking through your little website and san jose has absolutely still one of the worst skylines in the u.s.. I understand that you may have some incredible local pride for the city, but it definitely does not belong in this thread.

It looks more impressive than Seattle's and Philly's. I do admit it's shorter, but it's a fully developed downtown unlike others.

In fact, while there are only five
“Fully Developed Downtowns”—
Boston, Midtown Manhattan, Lower
Manhattan, Chicago, and Philadelphia—
they are home to almost half of
the nation’s downtown households.

Leave it alone. It's short and ugly. Bellevue even blows it out of the water, way out of the water.

I think, if I were younger, I would try Anchorage , AK. but as a downtown it is lacking. This is so true of many places one might like..... So. again, I think Chicago will top them all, sad to say, I did ot win the Urban Oasis contest for a 7000,000 apt. in the new Trump tower!
