Century City skyline looks larger than Los Angeles' skyline.

DT LA is taller and denser. its just that in that photo, Wilshire Blvd is running in front of CC therefore making it look dense (its called the Wilshire Corridor because there are tons of buildings just piled along the one street) look up CC in google earth and u will see its not that dense, but then find Wilshire Blvd and try to angle it so it looks like the pic. its a very deceiving pic, put i love it because it makes CC look so dense.

Default Skyline

Chicago clearly has the grandest skyline, very dramatic along the lakeshore, the city itself is architectual eye candy.

Seattle has the prettiest skyline. Nice compact downtown with colorful modern towers in a gorgeous setting.

New York is obviously impressive but hard to rate as its like vertical sprawl, hard to know where it begins and where it ends and only a handful of them really stand out.

I like Atlanta's skyline too, its different in terms of how spread out it is and its got a very post modern look to it.

thats because we have six or seven. put all those together and one skyline would be huge. its just that LA is so spread out that it would be impossible to only have one. it would take 5 or 6 hours to get there...one way... because all that traffic we have would be going only one way on one freeway. i cant even imagine the horror.

Detroit? I cant even recall how detroit's skyline looks. Detroit's skyline is not even in the top 10 in my opinion.
