The thing that boots DC out though is height. DC has no height and no skyline. The OP mentioned height as one of his requirements.

Well here's my opinion:
1.New york city
2.Chicago
3.San francisco
4.seattle
5.Los angeles
6.Philadelphia
7.Boston
8.Houston
9.Dallas
10.New Orleans I don't realy think this but I got lazy and put anything down that made sense.
but you could feel free to revise it.
Personally I think that San Francisco has a small downtown, yes it has a huge sky-line, but that makes up most of it. In practically every other major city the downtown extends for some distance beyond the financial district.

Are you sure?

I think it might be Houston, but I should look that up.
