Philly is the most stand-out of the 3, and by quite a long stretch too.

I would have to disagree, I like the detroit skyline alot, philadelphia would come second then Atlanta. the only reason I don't find Atlanta's syline to attractive is it's so spread out.

Its not that spread out, its just boring looking. Detroits is ok, but its funky, and the GM building is downright fugly. Philly's skyline is much more immense, has better architecture, wonderful neighborhood, awesome food, etc, etc. Theres soooooo much history in Philly, its a really intruiging city, whereas Detroit and Atlanta are just "blah" IMO. Im glad you like Detroit, but visit Philly sometime, youll see what Im talking about.

Of the 3, probably ATL. I have yet to visit Philly although I hope to in the near future. I have been to Detroit and I didn't feel that it could be a place that I would eventually live in.

I have visited philly, and I'm not that impressed with it. I really like Detroit's campus martius park district.

here is the heart of the financial district in Detroit, look at the building architecture, it's beautiful.
