The riverfront and the bridges, particularly at the Golden Triangle win my vote for Pgh.

NYC and Chi need to get off of there high horses. Pittsburgh is beautiful, nothing like it.
I think Pittsburgh is very nice...but nowhere near NYC. Someone mentioned earlier that Pittsburgh was named the most beautiful city in the world along with Paris...some people need a reality check.

P.S. How are you not banned? Didn't your brain go whacky earlier, causing you to go on a ridiculously racist rant?

I know this is not typical of the good folks of Pittsburgh.If it were true what you said ,then you would have to assume the same for Pittsburgh.I really like Pittsburgh's skyline.But the buildings that are achitectually relevant are not easily viewed from the sky as they look from street level.I know its not true but Pittsburgh does not have the best image over the years among the general public.You should be carefully insulting places.You strangely sound like someone else on here.........

Wow. When you see Atlanta has a favorable skyline you try comparing colleges. Then when you realize you're likely not going to win that battle you switch to comparing all the colleges in the whole state of Penn to those in Ga. Somebody is really grasping and stretching for someway, anyway to win at something. Besides, Pennsylvania is a larger State than Georgia (population wise). It's supposed to have more universities.

Sorry, but cities like Tokyo, Seoul, Paris, New York City, London, Mexico City, Vancouver, Montreal, Chicago, Los Angeles, among others photograph better than Pittsburgh IMO.

They are great pictures. But I could probably take pictures of Buckhead alone to rival those. Then there's Midtown and Downtown also in Atlanta.
