Atlanta's is a huge suburbian area, nothing is wrong with that, people live in the city, people want to be where the city is, suburbia is what makes a city, i think many people are jealous of Atlanta, it's far superior to any other city behind, New York, Chicago, and San Fransico. Atlanta is #2 in the nation when it comes to the city with the most Technology!!!! I think it's quite cute when people hate on a city like Atlanta, with world wide influence, the bussiest airport in the world, the largest airport in the USA. Now Atlanta now having Atlantic Station going up now, makes it the biggest building project going on in the USA, it's pretty much a city within a city, plus of how quickly other districts in Atlanta are growing, such as Buckhead, Sandysprings/Chamblee Dunwoody, the Cobb Galleria, Midtown Atlanta. Other cities can't even compare with the advanced highrises going up all over Atlanta's districts.

What a dumb poll. Sorry for being so harsh, but there are just too many cities excluded.

I like Oklahoma City;Dallas;Atlanta.

OKC has a new skyscrpaer going up.
And atlantas sprawling with development.
And dallas is just nice and big.

I think some cities like NY and Chicago were left out cause they would probably win outright. These cities listed are closer to a level playing field.

I went with Atlanta due to the large amount of building going on in Butthead and Midtown, plus future plans in these areas.

In the USA, I would say that the top 5, in terms of SIZE and visibility, are:

1. New York
2. Chicago
3. Miami (only really worthy of this place since the boom of the last 5 years, though)
4. San Francisco
5. Houston (downtown + uptown + Med Center area, etc.)
