Default Miami's bigger then L.A & Houston

Miami, Florida
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Today, Miami is undergoing a massive building boom that ranks second worldwide (and first in the United States) for the most buildings under construction that will be over 492ft (150m), with over 24 of such buildings currently under construction. Miami's skyline also currently ranks third in the U.S. behind New York City and Chicago (18th in the world) according to the 2006 Almanac of Architecture and Design.[2] Including other nearby neighborhoods and cities, the Miami area has over 80 highrise towers under construction, such as the Biscayne Wall in Downtown Miami, a row of skyscrapers being built along the west side of Biscayne Boulevard. Miami currently has the five tallest skyscrapers in the state of Florida with the tallest being the Four Seasons Hotel & Tower.[3]

WTF is up with people on this site. Atlanta is way overrated. I will hate the city forever based on this thread. The ATL residents are retarded and spam these threads. There's now way it's better than Boston and LA.

Ok, once again someone probably not familiar with Atlanta's overall skyline becomes outraged that someone actually thinks Atlanta has a decent one. Here's some of what the posters probably are thinking of when they vote for Atlanta as a top skyline.

i think Atlanta has a very plesant skyline, especially Midtown with 1180 Peachtree (the big glass building), but it does not deserve to be above a place like chicago like in the other thread. also, i think people dont really like it because it is suburbanish and it has a highway through the center, but overall i think it has a pretty nice skyline. however, Atlanta may come in first for how they light up at night :
