What downtowns do you thing has the most buildings, is the most dense, and has the tallest skyscrapers at the same time.



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.

1. New York City
2. Chicago
3. Washington DC
4. Philadelphia
5. San Francisco

oops...didn't see the skyscraper part...I guess I'll have to scratch DC off...oh well.

I think if you add in density and height, Pittsburgh will be "bigger" than New Orleans.

How could you possibly miss Atlanta. Atlanta deserves to be closer to the top, while NOLA deserves to be removed entirely (unless you're strictly thinking about the Superdome).
My top 5 (IMO):
1. New York City (obviously)
2. Chicago (second obvious)
3. Atlanta
4. Houston
5. Denver

If we're talking global, better add Tokyo to the list too.

Wow...I'm suprised at some of the areas. Maybe some of you guys should check out some downtown photos.

1) NYC ~ Uncontested
2) Chicago ~ Again...uncontested

Huge Dropoff....

3) San Francisco ~ It's a tough call between numbers 3-5
4) Boston
5) Philly

actually, there are many dirty area's of HK. And we're only talking bout downtowns so saying 'outside of manhattan' really doesn't fit because both of NY's largest CBDs are on manhattan. also this is general us section.
