Over/under on this thread getting closed asap?

That first picture of MPLS is old. It's missing all the new condos. I am from MPLS and have been to Philly and spent some time there. I can say that Philadelphia has a really cool skyline. It's dense and tall too. Compared to Minneapolis I would give the edge to Philly. Both skylines are fantastic, and they are very similar with smaller buildings on the peripheral and then leading up to a cluster of tall ones in the middle. I also know that both MPLS and Philly have great skylines but from only certain angles and vantage points. From the west MPLS looks tiny, but from the north and south it looks very impressive. Here are my two all time favorites for both cities.

Based on the overextended cap on threads about skylines (nearly a year now), this thread will probably get closed.

But for the record i go with philly

Philly. Gotta hand it to Philly in this department. Philly is really top 5 in the nation, too! In fairness I don't see this as being much of a contest to those who know both cities, but I appreciate being in the same breath as Philly on this subject!

I'm going to have to give it to Philly too. But I love Minneapolis's skyline, it's one of the most colorful skylines in the country in my opinion.
