The I75/85 Connector headed towards the downtown Atlanta skyline most people associate Atlanta with. Ok, but not my favorite of Atlantas skylines.

Downtown Atlanta. Forever rising from the trees. By the time you get there it'll probably look totally different.

Atlanta's skyline stretching from north Midtown to Downtown towers in the distance.

It's about the only decent part of Chicago, the only other things I can think of are the museums, and Wrigley Field.

Go Cubs!

Yeah, Buckhead's skyline has gotten huge. It looks big enough to be it's own stand alone city.

This is a view of (a portion of ) the Buckhead area of Atlanta probably from a condo. Stone Mountain is in the background. This is one of about four skylines Atlanta has. Including Downtown, Midtown, and Sandy Springs. Anyone doubt Atlanta's earned it's title as America's Tree City?
All of the Atlanta pictures posted are very fascinating, but Atlanta is the "tree city" not because it's the greenest, but because it has less development than other places that are just as green: New York, D.C., Houston, etc. I would actually give Augusta the title of the Tree City in Georgia.

And if those are the four skylines in "Atlanta", then there are only three because Sandy Springs is not in Atlanta.

3 skylines, wow, that's impressive for a city the size of Atlanta. Most cities only have 1.

Atlanta may have 4 skylines - all unimpressive - put them together still unimpressive.
