We know that NYC, Chicago, and Miami have the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd largest skylines respectively, how about the 4th? I'm guessing it's either Los Angeles, Atlanta, or Seattle. San Francisco should be up there too, and might have a bigger skyline than LA. Also Philly and Boston.

I'm thinking Houston but I have no stats to back that up. It just looks big.

In correct. In total skyscraper height, Houston is number 3. In total skyscrapers, I believe it Honolulu is number 3.

True, but they do have a lot of skyscrapers none the less. My point was that no matter how you slice the numbers, Miami is not the third largest skyline in the country.
