Interesting comparison. Due to the different geographies of these cities, I like each one considering their settings, so I can't really choose a favorite in this case, even though Atlanta's skyline is more expansive and consists of more buildings than Pittsburgh's.

I would choose Pittsburgh, I find its density and buildings more attractive.

Pittsburgh's skyline is too small in comparison to Atlanta. In pictures it looks fine because it is all relative. Shorter buildings will seem to be higher compared to even shorter buildings. I understand that bigger doesn't mean better, but for a skyline, you have to reach a certain number of tall buildings to make it impressive in person. Besides, the pictures shown are only downtown Atlanta. The picture in wikipedia is more representative. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:At...m_Buckhead.jpg and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:EASTATL.JPG

I would choose Pittsburgh. Pittsburgh has that older city look that is more appealing than Atlanta's.

I would choose Atlanta. Pittsburgh has that older, worn out look that is less appealing than Atlanta.

I love old buildings way more than modern buildings. Just way more appealing to the eye. So for that reason, Pittsburgh.
