Oh yeah. And St. Louis is probably pretty recognizable too maybe because of the Gateway Arch. Forgot about that one.
Oops.

It's okay. I think St. Louis is kind of used to being forgotten and/or ignored.

Give me Philadelphia, Newark, DC, Baltimore, Boston etc before any west coast city. The above are actual cities.

Everybody who lives somewhere other than the north east, really couldn't make it here.
Im sure there are plenty of people who wouldnt wanna make it in NYC and to some people Utah is where its at or Missouri or Arkansas, not everyone has an obsession with density. If you live in a city that you consider an actual city does that make you feel better about yourself, does it boost your confidence so you can write about it on this forum. You may not care about LA but the millions of people that live in that area must.

So just because western cities are lame to walk around that means

Houston has a very recognizable skyline once you see it a couple of times. No skyline in the word looks like it. If there is, please show me.

As for the most famous skylines, I think they'd be New York, San Francisco, Chicago, Miami, and Seattle.

Atlanta's is pretty recognizable, as is New Orleans'.

I don't know that the others would be as easy to name.
