In Canada, it's called the '13th man' as there are 12 players on each side in Canadian football.

^Couple new buildings that I like. That dark blue one under construction in the middle (for the color and slanty top) and Brickell House, just to the right of Four Seasons. A promising start to Miami's latest boom.

Boston will soon get some major recognition here. It's building its tallest building in 40 years, with an even taller building in prep phase. There are a few more huge (for Boston's standards) projects in the pipeline, and all are very high quality towers that would look good anywhere. The skyline is really about to explode in terms of height, mass, and quality, and the building frenzy might be even larger/longer than originally anticipated. The city itself is a real gem, and constantly improving.

it's a true baby New York (mainly downtown), along with Philadelphia (midtown) and Montreal (baby French NY). Glad to see all 3 of those cities are booming.

^ another good example of this; Denver, CO - it's definitely one of my favorite American skylines, but not good enough for a top 10 spot with only a few 200m skyscrapers and nothing rally iconic.

Nice to see some new faces on here: Boston, Detroit, and Denver. I'd kill for some of those old Detroit scrapers.

Jersey City kind of reminds me of Miami from that angle.

Great pic of Boston, btw. I love its decentralized yet still cohesive skyline. The rowhouses around gives off some Montreal vibes, too.

This discussion has been beaten to death.

We get it. Different countries have different ways of categorizing continents. Let it go.

the Caribbean and Central America are not continents. No need for discussion.
