One of the standard angles but a well done shot of Boston on flick. The buildings get progressively further away from right to left.

I'd say San Francisco is the third best skyline in the US and fourth in North America after New York, Chicago, and Toronto.

I agree! SF's setting has a huge role to play in that too!

That's one of the best SF skyline shots posted in a long time.

Id say (from first to fourth) San Francisco, then Philaelphia, then Seattle, and finally Miami. Miami is a great city, but Im not a big fan of a lot of the residential architecture there.

San Francisco, Seattle, Philadelphia, Miami. In the US I have New York, Chicago, and Los Angeles in the top 3 spots.

San Fran - Salesforce Tower and 1 Fremont transformed the skyline greatly.
Miami - just topped out a new tallest, more on the way.

Seattle - getting denser, but not much taller.
Philly - if the 30th Street Station district materializes, it will move up.

Sutro Tower is so cool. I wish it showed up in SF photos more often!

This is actually kind of hard for me to decide. I would probably place Miami last only because it's somewhat lacking in architectural diversity.

Maybe Philadelphia > San Francisco (mainly because of Salesforce) > Seattle? But it's close.
