I absolutely love Seattle's skyline, mainly because of the gorgeous view of the city, with the space needle in front, and "floating" mount rainer in the background. Easily my fave.

I do love the way it's from a Brooklyn point of view. Makes it seem like it's the most important part.

Default Thanks, pwright1

Nice images of Seattle, pwright1. And look at the clear skies! Not a rain cloud in sight.

Philadelphia + LA are entirely too under-represented in this poll. Philly trails Minneapolis by 10 votes? Trailing Pitt-Den-NO-Atl-Hou-Bos-SD-dall-Cle? Yikes. Something is definitely askew.

I have to go with Chicago followed by Seattle and NYC. Salt Lake City the biggest sleeper unknown to most.. Phoenix has been the biggest disappointment by far in all my travels..

San Francisco....wow....wow....wow. I love this city. In my opinion it, by far, has the best skyline.

I understand that the middle picture isn't a skyline but it is, nonetheless, part of the city of San Francisco

ooops, i forgot some....

This famous photo...that i actually took...it brought a tear to my eye when i found the perfect parking spot.....

Oh and, by the way, the city of San Francisco plans to change its skyline. They have begun building the transbay terminal tower, which is proposed to be taller than the Bank of America building in Los Angeles. If they do manage to build such a tower, then it will become the tallest building in the west.

Atlanta is over-hyped.
