How does Detroit have a terrible skyline?

Detroit has a nice skyline, but every time I see it, it always reminds me of someone throwing up the middle finger to the moon.

Look, I really don't know why everyone's saying that San Antonio's skyline is just horrible. It's not great, but it's not that bad....
Its a big disappointment from the 7th largest city in the USA.
This is not some little town we are talking about. for a city so big it is a big let down

Its right up there with Miami & Vegas in number of buildings built in the past 10 years.
well I wouldn't say very good, but I would say it is keeping up with its growth. It is not the big commerce city that Houston or Dallas is. It didn't really need it as a capital city/ college town. But now that it has moved away from that, the skyline too is moving away and keeping up with the new direction of the city

I agree ^^

Who ever said that Detroit has a "terrible skyline" isn't dealing with reality.
Even from a subjective standpoint, Detroit still has a very built out and impressive skyline.

Probaly the best art-deco skyline in the country. Although, the Ren Center could go.

Raleigh's may not be the worst, but it's unimpressive for a city of it's size. The new RBC building is an improvement but IMO it's still lacking.

Durham's isn't all that great either. If the University tower, which is the city's tallest building, would've been built downtown instead of out near a freeway it would certainly look better.
