Thumbs up Detroit/Windsor skyline!

Detroit has a nice skyline with Windsor, which compliments it!

A nice place to get a look a the Detroit/Windsor skyline is off of Belle Isle at night!

Sorry Steve-o for thinking Las Vegas is a 'skyline', i am not quite the 'connoisseur' as yourself when it comes to skylines.

(can you say 'pompous'?, boys and girls.... ..kidding, of course!)

I think this will answer your question .....



This is my town, Fort Worth, TX. Small, ain't it? I really wish it would look more like this....


Houston

....or this

Dallas

...even Austin would be an improvement. And they have the same problem Ft. Worth has.....Nobigskyscraper-itis.


Austin.

Sweet. Now I know how to post pictures.

HA! I know! I actually wish my Wilkes-Barre photos didn't malfunction; while Wilkes-Barre has 30,000 fewer residents, it has a more beautiful skyline, especially at night along the riverfront (when it's not overflowing!). The one thing I hate about Scranton is its dreadful skyline in comparison to other similarly-sized communities.

I voted Dallas since I really love the architecture.

I bet we can top that. Phoenix has a basically non-existent skyline!

For a city of 1.5 million people, we sure have a pathetic skyline!

Now this is one silly question. Are you serious about asking for the best skyline in America?

In America, and in the whole world, you'll never see anything like the Manhattan skyline.

I mean, please! Don't even put those small cities in a poll with mighty New York when asking about skyscrapers!

Well evidently others think differently, we all don't like the same thing. I'd pick the Dallas skyline over the NYC one anyday. Different strokes for different folks...

You crack me up, so many of your posts are so stereotypically "new yorker who thinks the world revolves around their city" that I wonder if you are doing a New Yorker parody (my grandfather was from new york, but he was from the Bronx, so I'm thinking his experience has been a bit different from yours, he used to joke around all the time about how they all thought they were the center of the universe). I've seen some pretty impressive skylines around this world, and while New York is certainly up there, it isn't as nearly as impressive as some new yorkers seem to think
