I would have to say The Baltimore skyline is underrated but I am a little prejudice. As I was involved with the lighting project on the Bank of America building back in 1994 the Building dominates the skyline at night and can be seen for miles Believe or not the gold ribs on the top are actual gold leaf

Chicago doesnt light up? Ive lived as far away from Chicago as 70 miles, and I can still see the giant ball of light surrounding the city. Its amazing... looks like a big orange ball of light in the sky.

first, you select the "insert image" icon on the toolbar (which has a picture of mountains and the sun on it).

second, you copy and paste the URL of the image (either .jpeg or .gif).

third, you should see the URL of the image between two "[IMG]."

then just hit reply!

You should use google images and, for example, type in "Rosslyn, VA."

I'm talking about diffrerent lights and colors like floodlights lighting up the buildings like green, blue, red. chicago was just a boring white glow.
