Why isn't Manhattan (New York City) on the list? It only has the most famous skyline of any city in the world.

The difference between Houston and Denver--and their skylines--is that Denver is a small city surrounded by a sea of suburbs while Houston is just, well, Houston.
The only difference is that Houston has suburbs within its city limits. whether or not suburb sprawl is within city limits or not is really irrelevant.

As for skylines, in no order SF, Philly, Seattle, Pittsburgh, Minneapolis, and a special mention to the always left out Washington whose unique European city center and landscape is really breathtaking from above and on street level

You know what, Joe? That's a fine point! But, I think that cities with the most central, important core cities tend to have the best dowtowns and skylines. For example, life in metro Seattle utterly revolved around the city of Seattle and that's why you see the dramatic city center above. Same with Houston.

But life in metro Denver does revolve around the city of Denver, and hence why it's skyline is not exactly overwhelming.

In a way, that makes sense but in a way it doesn't. Technically. Accordingly, whatever "suburbs" are in Houston, they used to be their own town but ended up being annexed by the city. These areas outline the city limits, but everything else is urban.
