Skyline-wise, which one wins? (Combining architecture, history, landmarks, topography/scenery)

Philadelphia, but I like Seattle's skyline too. Topography goes to Seattle.

Seattle wins it on the topographic/modern side, but if you want to go with architecture and history Philly takes it.

Philadelphia has a better skyline with better architecture, however Seattle also has a very nice skyline.

LOL The problem with that statement is that you can't ignore the amazing natural water and mountain backdrop of the Seattle Skyline. That blows anything Philly has to offer to shame because of it.

I like them both, but I prefer Philadelphia because of its history, density, and proximity to other major US cities.
