I believe this thread is actually referencing not only skylines but activity of DT.

Yes I understand and respect that, but I was simply answering the question to what appeals to me in terms of "best downtown".
Haha, as for activity, I've seen San Deigo, Seattle, Miami take the lead on this.

Those are some hot cities from what I hear. I can feel you about the skylines, I'm a skyline nut myself.

Yeahhh to me the activity in a downtown doesn't matter as much as it's skyline. Even if I have to go to other ends of the city to have fun, I don't mind, as long as I have a large and beautifully planned skyline to look at, it's all that matters to me.

However, when a downtown is fun, then I have to say, it feels nice being ad-mist those buildings, no feeling like a good skyline.
That's why I really do hope Chicago continues with the Spire. It'll be one heck of a great building to add on to it's skyline.

Miami's downtown pretty much sucks. Outside of Bayside, there's pretty much nothing to do in downtown Miami.

Are the cities with a year after them about to go through massive changes or something, relating to it's downtown?

Boston, Baltimore, DC, Jersey City... I sound bias as hell, but North Eastern architecture is my favorite kind of architecture. (In this country)
