That of course explains why far more people voted for Seattle.

Myami is uglier than a baboon's honeypot compared to Seattle. Mt. Rainier, the Olympics, Puget Sound, Lake WA.

This looks better than Miami's skyline?

What an odd comparison.

Not really. The problem with Miami's skyline is that you have to be in Florida to see it.

Boo Miami. I see like 50 cranes in Miami, unoperated because of economy, 23% vacancy rates. Growing is over-exaggerated, its empty in most of these buildings, and do you realize lots of them are condos? Seattle is mostly business and it is dense. Tallest building too and landmark (Space needle) beats Miami. Not to mention landscape... Beats Miami's flatness.

Miami has so much more potential because of it's climate and attraction. Miami is expected to be one of the largest skylines in the world by 2015. Seattle? C'mon.

You can always find a reason to go downtown and find something interesting to see and do.
Not many people retiring in downtown Miami.

I think one of the reasons Miami gets bashed so much and loses a lot of polls is because theres not a lot of people from Miami on this site. Look through this whole thread and see all of the Seattle people come out of the woodworks to protect their city lol.

I'm not from Seattle. WORLD largest skyline in Miami by 2015? *slaps my head* wow really.. Its not even top 5 largest in UNITED STATES. Theres like FIFTY cranes left to rust for years on top of buildings because people realize Miami was over-exaggerated. Seattle has 300 Billion economy and Miami.. what? Its larger yet smaller economy.

You don't do much research.

User:Raime/Skyline rankings - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Seattle isn't even top 10.
