Los Angeles skyline is HUGE.
Here are some starts of the skyline
Irvine, to Santa Ana, to Anaheim, to Downtown Los Angeles.
Huntington Beach, to Long Beach, to Downtown Los Angeles.
Downtown Santa Monica, to Downtown Los Angeles.
Burbank, to Glendale, to Century City, to Downtown Los Angeles.
Hollywood, to Downtown Los Angeles
Really, Downtown Los Angeles spreads 5 very long skylines.
The skylines aren't continuous though.
Saying that the skylines are noncontinuous, then here is a fun fact.
Los Angeles is home to other 15 major skylines.
I counted them. I'd estimated GREATER LA AREA is home to 100 skylines.

No they can't. No man made structures are invincible to nature. Except maybe the Washington Monument?

Getting better, but for a metro of 17 million, it is still WAY BEHIND THE CURVE!

It has multiple skylines with many many independendent municipalities so therefore the dispersion and not all the concentration of skyscrapers in the Downtown Los Angeles area.

You must be confusing the valley with downtown. There are no single family homes in the areas pictured in this thread. Should we take a few pictures of Statten Island and conclude from them that NYC is not urban?

Man how beautiful!

LA has one of the best skylines in the US. The Library Tower is my favorite building in the world! We found my cat in the parking garage just below it!

LA is just going to keep getting denser. More and more people still want to live there. People underestimate how dense LA really is.

The Eastern Colubmia Building on Broadway in Dowtown LA. A beautiful 1930's Art Deco landmark was remade into condos/lofts a few years ago. According to press reports, Johnny Depp purchased a penthouse for a few million.

Also, the Eastern Columbia Building is directly across the street from the Orpheum Theatre which is a historic theatre that was revitalized a few years ago and hosts live concerts/shows from Roger Daltrey to Bright Eyes.
