There is many many skylines in the US and a lot of beautiful ones are ignored because of the bigger cities. I dont necessarily think the bigger the better when it comes to skylines, i think it's a matter of structure and uniqueness to it. List some city skylines that deserve to have an honorable mention when it comes to beautiful skylines!

My 2 choices

Jersey City

I happen to be a fan of urban skylines wherever they happen to be. So my question to you is: you sign in as "Newarkbomb," yet you don't list Newark's skyline? What about that one?

Little Rock, Arkansas: May not look like much to the true urbanite, but for a city of only 184,000, we have a decent skyline

Tulsa, Oklahoma is another impressive one for a city its size.
