Sure Houston and Dallas have the height and size, but I'm more impressed with individual shape and architecture, and Austin generally has the most interesting in my opinion

I guess what I really mean is that Austin has the best looking downtown if not the best skyline

Bragging about durian fruit when the question was about which city is the prettiest doesn't even strike me as odd coming from her anymore.

Random is her vocation.

Seattle: Very nice and big colorful wooden homes surrounded by nice green trees by the beautiful lake.
Also, Nice building architecture downtown.
Well this is mostly what I call beautiful...

See, that's exactly how I think. To me two things really make a skyline 1)Incorporation with nature (especially mountains/hills), and 2)The architecture of the buildings. I'm more impressed by the Monte Carlo skyline than by the NYC skyline. For that matter, I'd rank the Dubai skyline over NYC. Anyway, I also find Austin's architecture more interesting than Houston's and Dallas'. I would rank them Austin, Houston, Dallas.

IMO, the most beutiful city is DC. The city has the highest percentage of parkland in the US(tied with NYC), and I just love the architecture. The city also has very little, to no industrial areas.
Honorable mention for me would be SF and Boston.

I have a hard time calling Chicago and New York City Beautiful; parts of them are, but as a whole, not on the same level as other cities.

I would say DC and SF. They are both unique and have their own style. SF blends well with the natural scenery. DC is just different. It's extremely urban with great architecture, but its high-rises aren't as tall as most cities. It has a different vibe that I really like.
