Dude. Nobody doubts these places exist or that more flattering pictures can be found. Hell, even Susan Boyle doesn't look like a man in some photographs. But it doesn't change the fact that Galveston is a good 50 miles away and has a lone 23 story building built back in the seventies. While the Museum District has a couple high rises that I wouldn't consider a "skyline" either.

I think this is all just pissing in the wind, fellas. That being said, my Daddy can beat up your Daddy!

Oh, I agree there, I just wanted to post some better pictures . And yeah, wouldn't call the Museum District a skyline either, but it's getting there. More and more are coming in. It's more of a high/mid-rise cluster right now.

You don't have to show me pictures. I agree with you. Houston's skyline is significantly larger and convincingly bland compared to Dallas's.

I have to say that (with the exception of H's Heritage, which is worse looking than anything Dallas could conjure) Dallas's post '72 skyscrapers are just mediocre by comparison except for its 3 Henry Cobb pieces.

If you're going to count Galveston, at least count Fort Worth for Dallas. It's closer to Dallas than freakin Galveston is to Houston.....
I did count Fort Worth Mister Turtlehead poking out your rear.

Did you just flat out over look where I listed Downtown Fort Worth & immediately resort to your name calling?

Case closed.

Since you're counting anything over one story tall, the Dallasites on this board could similarly make up neighborhoods or cities 50 miles away with structures taller than my car. But we're not gonna be that petty. Not today.

Houston has a great skyline. Houston's Uptown/Galleria has awesome buildings with great density. So does Texas Medical Center. But you're trying too hard to be a Houston homer on the Dallas board.
Museum District is that whole line of buildings going from left to right in the middle of this pic you fool. Its what will eventually merge downtown with the Texas Medical Center skyline just like Uptown & Downtown Dallas forming an even larger skyline.

A lone 23 story building?

Have you even seen the two new 300 something foot tall twin condos that were built just a few years ago right on the water?

How about the new 400 ft. tall condo in Clear Lake?

Shows how much you know.
