How is Phoenix even on the list? My city's skyline looks better and we've only got 6 skyscrapers 20 floors and up.

And Atlanta has a great skyline, but I think N.Y., Chi-town, Houston, Miami, Las Vegas, and Seattle have better ones.

^ What city are you from? and yeah, I feel that Phoenix has one of the worst US skylines, sorry phoenix. Even Des Moines, Omaha, St. Paul, Richmond, etc. have better skylines imo. Also, How is Honolulu not here???? Imo, one of North Americas best! I also think some Ohio cities should go here (Columbus, Cleveland, Cinncy)

It ain't even the most beautiful in skyline in DFW, but at least ours as some design. BTW, this is an old photo. One of those buildings aren't standing anymore.

Default Seattle hands down........

In terms of pure beauty the Seattle skyline is absolutely gorgeous. Not to mention its tall, dense, and the buildings look very elegant, classy, and just screams’ this illustrious confidence of beauty effortlessly.

Seattle is situated against steep hills sitting on Puget Sound, Flank by Mount Rainier, and two mountain ranges.....wow! If you have never been to Seattle, you are seriously missing one of if not the most spectacular and beautiful cities in North America.. Simply breathe taking.

Coming in on a ferry from the islands in the sound into downtown Seattle, almost seems unreal. Another nice view of Seattle is from West Seattle on Alki, and the famous Kary Park on Queen Anne Hill, that's the angle most of the world usually see's Seattle from. Gas works park is a nice place to view downtown Seattle also. In the next 5 years or so, Seattle's world class skyline will be even more dense, and expanded, with increased height zoning, plus in some sections the height is unlimited now....wow, there are cranes all over the place, condo here, condo there, condo everywhere going up. Some projects look so futuristic and sexy I can't wait to see Seattle's skyline when they get built.

Now in terms of sure gargantuan size, New York gets that one hands down, but Seattle IMO is unmatched in pure beauty (in the US). After that......I really like L.A. (they get hated on way to much), San Fran, Miami, and Chicago (Only from a distance) most of their buildings are ugly to me IMO, but the view of the skyline looks nice, and I like it's size.
