First off, I would NEVER consider Scottsdale a city. It's a burb of another burb (Phoenix), full of gated communities and the fake plastic wealthy. It's also in the middle of the hot, horrid desert, and has access to nothing. I am sorry, but I do NOT feel alive when I visit Phoenix/Tempe/Scottsdale/Mesa. That metro is easily the worst in the nation, and funny enough, so many people agree.
Uhh...yea access to nothing; San Diego and Vegas are about 6 hours away, Sedona isn't too far, Mexico is a few hours away, and Sky Harbor will take you anywhere else you need to go. If you don't feel alive when here then just stay away. This is a metro of over 4,000,000 people so evidently they must be doing something right.

Based on what, your opinion?

Please, you ask most people what city has the worst skyline in America, they will most likely answer Phoenix. The skyline there is horrible, and the downtown is just as dead as the skyline appears. There is nothing going on there, and obviously from your post, you have to get out of there to have access to anything.

Since when did this become about a skyline? I admit that Phoenix doesn't have much of a skyline but I still love this city.

It's not about the skyline, but the skyline is a pretty good representation of the city. Sorry to break this to you, but that city is dead. I have been there plenty of times, and it has nothing to offer.

Evidently you haven't searched very hard...

About the skyline, many cities have small skylines but the cities itself are pretty important. Look at Denver, Minneapolis, Los Angeles (small skyline for a city its' size), Austin, Washington D.C., etc etc; all these cities are important but each lacks a huge skyline.

All of New Jersey. That would take care of the 9,000,000 or so people that hate me with an undying passion for no logical reason!

P.S. I'm proud that nobody said "Scranton." I guess our image is improving somewhat.

I'd also throw Schenectady, New York into the ring because it's too difficult to spell!

LOL!!! You crack me up. I love the NJ comment. hehehehe

Schenectady.......... hmmm, can you imagine some poor kid trying to learn to say that. I can think of a couple of words that would be coming out that would raise a few eyebrows. Why don't we just call it like it is "schitntittie" or "schitndady".

Whenever I poke my nose into that forum, I just feel the pitchforks starting to run towards me at full-force, as most are still quite refreshed of our major brou-ha-ha back in December.

I know. It's almost as bad as "Pflugerville", Texas. I don't even know how to pronounce that one! LOL! Is the "P" silent?
