I'm not going to go on size, but rather on my interpretation of beauty.

1) Chicago- Gorgeous in almost every way, excellent blend of styles and eras. Perfect range of heights.

2) New York City... particularly when viewed from the South

3) Seattle- a near perfect intermingling between urban and natural beauty

4) Atlanta- exceptional modern architecture represented

5) Detroit- love the blend of styles and eras represented.

No, that's an actual photograph. All of the buildings pictured there exist. Not sure what looks goofy about it.

Nope. They're already built.
