How many skylines in your city?

Show the skylines (big and small) in your city.

Metro Vancouver is made up of twenty something cities and municipalities and many of them have their own skylines and some of them even have more than one although they might not be as big or impressive as the largest one in downtown Vancouver.

It would take me a little while to find or take those skyline photos. So stay tuned..

That is a very nice picture of Minneapolis. Captures just about all of the high rises in the city.

New York has 3 distinct skylines

Midtown Manhattan
Downtown Manhattan
Downtown Brooklyn

Long Island City is a growing skyline, but its still relatively small.

Jersey City also forms a part of the skyline, but I know many don't like to include it with New York City
