skyline and downtown are 2 different things.

Some cities have gorgeous skylines but the actual downtown once you get there is tragic at street level.

I flew into Atlanta recently and wasn't impressed by its skyline, maybe it was the very plain natural setting. Houston should be included in the poll because it is the third tallest city in the US after New York and Chicago, plus it is very modern. Toronto is pretty large too.

Here is Arlington, Virginia, which has four skylines and panoramic views of Washington, DC. Although it would be better if Washington had panoramic views of Arlington.
The Washington, DC area has 21 walkable neighborhoods, and ranks second after New York which has 22. Arlington has 7 of those neighborhoods.

I must say that Seattle's skyline is very impressive, I like it a lot!

Detroit is one in which I regard highly as well. There is power and statements made in skylines, and these two in particular make a pretty good impression whether you know the city or not .
