Twin Cities? are we suppose to combine Minneapolis and Saint Paul? lol
Seriously though all these skylines are the same, just tall a bunch of buildings and 2 or 3 tall ones that stick out; however that is not the case in St Louis

Absolutely. And yes, I've sat in the upper deck in Target Field along the third-base line and stared at it for several hours. Nice, definitely, but not particularly unique.

IMO

Minneapolis - 3 tallest buildings are impressive
Cincinnati - Great density and cohesiveness
Cleveland - Terminal Tower and Key Tower are true gems
St. Louis - Gateway arch is cool. Not a fan of their office buildings though
Detroit - Interesting street layout, awesome art deco towers

Milwaukee skyline starting to gather momentum.

New 30 story tower the Moderne to be finished shortly-----and new 44 story tower proposed and advancing forward.

In combination with the relatively new towers built along the lakefront, Milwaukee skyline starting to really take a new and bold shape.

In all honesty, St. Paul holds its own-- on its own-- with most of the other cities in the Midwest, besides Detroit, Cincy, and maybe Milwaukee (which would kind of be my top 3 outside of Minneapolis, and Chicago obviously). It's not very tall, but it is really dense, and if you can get both domes in one shot, one of the most scenic/historic out there....

While I def agree it holds its own very well, I wouldn't place it above St. Louis which seems to keep getting crapped on as people only see pics of it as a backdrop to pics of the Arch rather than actual pics of it...
