My vote!

Clearly anyone who gives San Francisco a score lower than a 8, is looking at its skyline with lying eyes. I have noticed people are being a bit personal when voting on cities. This is an opinion poll however so you have to give people the benefit of the doubt.

I try to do so but, I feel people arent giving fair scores. At times only becuase they dont like a city and they never been there. Other times because they have visited a city and didnt like it there.


GOD IS GOOD!

God San Fran rocks my world...the people, the atmosphere, the skyline, everything is awesome. I almost shed a smidge of a tear when I saw it for the first time

24/7, dense, little bit of deadzones, ok height, a lot of new development, what else can someone ask for? Well, SF is got that and more, it is truly one of America's greatest skyline. I love this skylinealthough people form SF are always saying it is better than LA's. I hope SF gets the Trans Bay buildings, that would make the skyline one of the best anywhere. SF has an impressive density, I give it a 10/10.

A snapshot of the city when I went last year.


I give the skyline a 9/10. The building all work together well and dont have to be completely glass to do so.

That isn't the Golden Gate Bridge, it's the Bay Bridge which was built around the same time. Despite being considerably large than the GGB, it is less known and really should deserve more credit.
