That's not the best image of the St. Louis skyline. I would say either Minneapolis or Detroit, since their skylines are the next biggest ones in the Midwest outside of Chicago. Then I would put Cincinnati, followed by St. Louis and Cleveland tied, followed by Indy and Columbus, followed by Kansas City.

Im surprised Cleveland hasnt gotten more votes. IMO we definitely have the 2nd best skyline in the midwest.

1. Chicago
2. Cleveland
The rest are not in exact order, but close:
3. Minneapolis
4. Cincinnati
5. Detroit
6. St. Louis
7. Indianapolis
8. Columbus
9. Kansas City
10. Milwaukee

yes very close between Minneapolis and Detroit, but i think Minneapolis takes it...i also think KC has a nice skyline too, but not as nice as Minn or Detroit

Only 2 other people agree with you so apparently not

I expected it to be close with Detroit and Minneapolis. Minneapolis is my third favorite very close with Detroit. I didn't expect Columbus, Indianapolis, and Kansas City to get many votes either. I knew there would be a few people saying, "Cleveland is the 2nd best because I said so." There are many Clevelanders on this forum that think Cleveland is the absolute best city. I've had enough of all that talk. How about you?

I think Detroit wins for me because of its excess amount of older skyscrapers. Just look at it, its ridiculously astonishing
