Great picture, but the only thing impressing me about it is the density. This comparison is like the Montreal vs. Houston.

The only thing the Dallas Skyline lacks is density! If Dallas had density the skyline would be better!

That is what puts SF's skyline over Dallas's for me. SF's density isn't just something to be casually referenced when compared to Dallas; it's simply overwhelming. The two skylines are honestly in two different leagues. It just is what it is.

Yes, and pictures dont do justice to SFs skyline. Ive been to both cities many times, and while I much prefer Dallas' skyline to Houston's, I really dont think it can compare to SFs in person, at all.

To me, SF or Philly are easily 3 or 4 (after NYC and Chicago, of course). Dallas doesnt belong in this conversation...

Density is so overrated. I actually like the lollipop in Dallas.

The Reunion Tower makes the Dallas skyline unique!

Well it's debatable if it's overrated or not. But density is one of the key points in judging a skyline. San Francisco easily wins this. Density is much more pleasing to the eye.

The main reason SF is dense is because SF does not have that much space! 46.7 sq mi that is almost how much water Dallas has in its city limits!
