Id say its a bit more recognizable than Hong Kong, but thats changing fast. Take away the Trans America building in San Fran and leave out the Golden Gate Bridge and background scenery, and I dont know if most would be able to ID it.

No, its actually not gonna change anytime soon.

It doesnt take scores of towers to be noticed.

It only requires one that really stands out.

Kinda, sorta. It takes one to make it stand out, a whole bunch (ie Chicago or NY) to make it extraordinary.

There was a survey I read long ago that ranks SF skyline the fifth most recognized skyline after NY, HK, Chicago and LA. I am not saying the survey is valid. It's just a matter of opinion.

I don't mean to be rude, but i highly disagree with that. IMO, the most known is NY, than HK, and Then Chicago with San francisco coming in at like 7 or something

Louisville,Ky does have a nice skyline,very very impressive, and I think the new 61 story building they are adding is one of the nicest and most unique I've seen in this whole country.
