New York has too much of a skyline for my liking so not included.

Best skyline? Best is subjective. Best to me is tall, colorful and function, meaning my prospective of the skyline from it's entirety at all angles.

Have not been to all of these cities but seen well over enough pictures. So my version of best form these cities in Order are

Chicago
Houston
Seattle
San Fransisco
Miami
Philadelphia
Dallas
Atlanta
and Pittsburgh.

I don't have a hatred for beauty and I dont have Pittsburgh in my top 5 ten or 15. There is nothing impressive about their skyline.

Pittsburgh's skyline is nice form a distance. Walking around in downtown leaves much to be desired, although it is improving.
