lol you can't be serious
no offense, but i hate people like you. completely materialistic people that don't care about how beautiful the environment. it's your fault we have global warming. not saying you personally, but the people that can look at a pic like that and hate it

so i guess all these are ugly too then, just b/c the downtown isn't all materialistic?

I'm pretty sure that not liking a city's skyline does not equal a hatred for earth, or in any way cause "global warming." The fact is, Chicago has the best skyline. Atlanta's is mediocre at best. And if you're really into the whole "green" movement (I'm not), Chicago also happens to be the greenest city in America. So take that, Alaska!

I have to go with my home city, Jacksonville FL. Jax may not have the most buildings, but in my opinion, it's by far the most beautiful, especially at night!

Gorgeous pictures! I'm a Florida girl, I don't really like cold weather myself, but it's definitely beautiful to look at!

I haven't thought of that. Atlanta isn't better than Manhattan or the Loop/Near North Side.

WTF!?!?!?!? You're so right

ATL is not better than LA or NYC or Chicago or Miami or Houston or Seattle or even Tampa. I hate ATL. It is the most overrated skyline in the world and it's not even good.

I voted for San Francisco, hands down. I can't believe anyone voted for Chicago, or any city other than San Francisco or NYC. The Chicago skyline is rather ugly, and it lacks in character. The stupid antenna things on top of the Sears Tower are just plain hideous. Also, to whoever here said Chicago is the second city, you really must be fooling yourself. That honor goes, without a doubt, to Los Angeles.
