The largest American cities. Not all of them are world-class (or, in this case, North American-class), but there are definitely a few.

Thanks for the suggestion! I, too, have noticed that all three photos that I posted are missing the Millennium Tower, but they were the best I could find.

Actually, I included the top 10 most populous cities in the United States, and for a reason: so that you can see how population doesn't really affect how good a skyline is.

By the way , A chicagoan , My Mother was born in East Boston , Overlooking Logan's Airport from the top of the Hill to the north of the Airport, and YES , she's Italian, all immigrant's from Italy back in 1896 was moved there and where many Lived for years, I love watching The " BIG DIG " : for more than 15 Years, with the Ted Williams Tunnel being built first

It's Hard to Believe in those 15 Years Over 16 BILLION American Taxpayers Money paid for the whole thing Including the Massachusetts Turnpike to connect to the Ted Williams Tunnel, Unbelievable and at first it was only to Cost less tan 3 billion when started and they let it go all the way to completing everything Including the Charles River Cable Bridge, which was Millions to Complete !! WOW [email protected] a mouth full there !!
