Default Cities with the best skyline for their size

Cities that have a better skyline than other cities of their similar size? My vote goes to my own city, compared to similar size metros like albuquerque, bridgeport, and tuscon we have them beat.

Omaha does have a nice skyline. One more tall skyscraper sure would do wonders though.

Calgary's metro population is only about 1.3 million but its skyline bigger than many much bigger metros like Phoenix and Detroit, and comparable to others like Dallas, Boston, Denver, Montreal and Seattle and not that far behind San Francisco, LA and Philadelphia.

And there's Yellowknife, the fact that such a small city has a skyline is pretty impressive. I can't think of any metros under 100,000 that compare and it has only 20,000.

Calgary is a good one. Also, Pittsburgh, Denver, Charlotte, Minneapolis-St. Paul, and Richmond, VA.

I think Hartford has the best skyline for any metro between 1,188,240 and 1,188,243 people, Just my opinion.
