The best is Dallas. The worst is Chicago simply because I think it is way too vertical.

hmm...best. I'd have to say its close between NYC and Chicago. If all of Chicago's planned buildings are built, I think Chicago may have it. I think the freedom tower is going to look way to awkward in the NYC skyline, but then again so will the Spire.

I'd vote Chicago, seeing as the lake is really nice against the buildings, and the skyline is accidentally or purposely divided into three sections.
Sears/Trump
Hancock
Aon

Lower Manhattan isn't the same since 9/11. Midtown is really nice. I love how the Empire State Building looks so much taller seeing as its set against smaller buildings.
