This goes to those who want to "bad-***" a city on this post: If you want to talk about how bad a city is, go start a thread on the cities you hate and get beat up there. It's all about skylines here, folks.
Well said!

By the way, here's what Chicago will look like after The Spire is finished in 2010:

To elfyum: I replied to the post like yours, find it

and to rainrock: thanks for the photos of Philadelphia! They were great!

and here are some photos of NYC skyline. They arent 'typical' cause I think we all know how the City of NY looks so they are for... connoisseurs







and this is my favourite, it shows the streets and skyscrapers along them, NYC skyline is so well-organized, isnt it?



and there were the photos of Chicago with the Spire so here are some pix of NYC with the Freedom Tower:





Enjoy!

Found it. It's your poll, but that's just an odd thing to leave out huge cities that are known (at least somewhat) for their skylines, & then include ones that don't really have a skyline... But it's all cool.

I'd normally say Chicago, but after seeing the pic of Anchorage ... just ... wow.

Pittsburgh, PA! So neat and compact. And the rivers and hills add to the beauty.

Baltimore has alot of issues, but I must admit, the skyline is lovely here.
Than being said, I still voted for NYC anyway.

Pittsburgh at night, please. Chicago and Detroit just don't have the same effect.

How could they not have the same effect? Theyre 5X's bigger (well, Chicago is) and have many more lights and much more architectural variations. Plus, seeing Chicago at night from out on Lake Michigan is probably the most beautiful sights Ive seen (thats manmade). Its an unadulturated view of the city and its bajillions of lights, all from the peace and quiet of the lake, truly a remarkable sight.

Oh, I DO love Pittsburghs skyline, its small but very nice, complimented by the hills. I forget the name, but we took a tram up one hill and it had some killer views of the skyline.
