Seattle is terrific. That's obvious when you take in the waterfront visual! 9.

I give Seattle a 10/10! Not only does it have one heck of a
tall, dense skyline built on steep hills, it's also got the
Space Needle as a centerpiece from the Queen Anne view.
On top of this, it is surrounded by the most stunning natural
setting of snow capped mountains, the bay, the greenery.
No doubt about it, it's a 10. The skyscrapers alone would be
enough to give it a 9.5.

The skyline is great, although I don't like the buildings.

=> 7.5

You weren't even in the city, how could you give it such a low rating based on it's residential areas? Go into the downtown area and take some pictures, they will look more like this:

I was in Seattle's downtown - I live there. These pics were taken from the Space Needle. The reason for my low rating is because the city center is dead - there're no people at all, and the residential sector just sucks. The population is way to small for a city like Seattle. So I think that it's a fake city - more like a village with some skyscrapers in the center, but rather dead and boring.

I like Seattle's very impressive skyline. It looks like a much larger city than it is. A 9 from me.

Seattle has everything a skyline should have outside of itself to enhance it. Water, bridges, and mountains. Oh Mt. Rainier looks so cool behind this skyline. There are so many different styles of scrapers and height differences, and the space needle is definately something to look at. Simply gorgeous skyline. 9.5/10.

And the people who voted 3 are skewing the poll, please stop doing that. 3 people have voted 3, probably just trying to bring down the average so that their crappy city can be a little closer to this marvelous skyline.
