It's a great photo. There's something special about west coast cities.

If I had to rank the North American Skylines right now it would look something like this: (my opinion is constantly changing however)

1. New York City
New York is still the king in North America (and the world) for me. The Empire State Building and Chrysler Building are two of my favorite skyscrapers in the world. I have a critique as well. I'm not really happy with these new narrow super-tall residential skyscrapers near central park. Both because of what they represent and how they affect the overall skyline. Maybe when there are more my opinion will change. Currently I feel like they ruin the overall picture as they do not fit in at all.

2. Chicago
Chicago has awesome architecture. The skyline is in balance and is very eye-pleasing. The location at the lake gives it a great aesthetic. The river surrounded by tall buildings is an awesome sight as well.

3. Toronto
The only city in this list that I have visited. Toronto is really beautiful already but seems to have one of the most promising construction coming up. The lake gives it adds so much to it as well (just like with Chicago). The CN Tower is the beautiful landmark that just finishes the picture.

4. San Francisco
Great natural surroundings, beautiful bridges and an awesome new landmark that made it rise a lot on the list for me.

5. Seattle
Space Needle and the way it is surrounded by the water.

6. Philadelphia
In a way this is a typical American Skyline to me. I really like typical American skylines. Philly is has a certain freshness to it that makes it stand out. The way the tallest skyscrapers top the skyline off is really eye-pleasing to me. Their positioning is great. The crowns on two of the two glass towers really reminds me of a modern Chrysler Building.

7. Los Angeles
That new tallest tower is a great addition to an already great and familiar skyline.

8. Vancouver
Wins of them all when it comes to natural surroundings. But the skyline itself is very well put together and clean as well.

All other skylines I can't really rank at this moment. I haven't made up my mind about the Mexican skylines. Monterrey is great with those unique mountains in the background however.
