Some of the views from Soldier Field are great skyline shots of Chicago

Only problem with the ballparks in Atlanta and Philadelphia is that they're a little bit too far away from their respective skylines to get the full impact that you get in places like Pittsburgh, Minneapolis or Detroit.

You know, if Dodger Stadium could be rotated 180 degrees, then it'd probably challenge PNC Park for the best skyline view in Major League Baseball. Same with U.S. Cellular Field in Chicago if it could be rotated 135 degrees.

I thought this was too cool a thread to let go to waste. From what I've seen, Detroit and Pittsburg have awesome views of downtown for sure!

And how! Detroit, IMO, has one of the best Art-Deco downtowns in the USA, and Comerica Park was basically designed to show that off.

is it just me, or does it seem like most ballparks are copying BAltimore's camden yards?

Sure, the same way Camden Yards copied all the older ballparks like Fenway Park and Wrigley Field.
