That was three years ago. Chicago is fatter than Houston today. Houston is sixth.

Nice pics of the Texas skylines. Austins always reminded me of Las Colinas in Irving Texas for some reason.

Chicago I can see, just kinda a given. But Houston, really, it is that high on the fat list?! That's too bad. I have always thought of Houston as more fit and trimmed than that. Oh, Houston is still one of my top five favorite places in the country, along with every other major city in Texas. You guys have prospered so much these past few years that I suspect that you will soon become the third most powerful and populated city in the nation.

Detroit is by far the best skyline...all the post-modern buildings. the downtown isn't small either. the downtown is very dense though, so it doesn't strecth too far.
