The best view is from Alki. God, I love this city. I can't wait to return.

Sme may be interested in this. It obviously highlights one specific near-future addition. There are others on the books that are not included that will also change the skyline. Anyways, enjoy!

9/10

Most impressive skyline on the Pacific. Much superior to Vancouver...Only Frisco rivals it.

So would most of us who live here. There are quite a few locals that would love to see a more gradual step down on the southern end of dt.

I'd definitely put Vancouver ahead of Seattle or SF.

Anyways, 8.5/10 for Seattle from me.

Fabulous pictures on this page. I absolutely love the tall, slender Bank of America building, especially for it's beautiful black cladding. I wish more skyscrapers would go for black cladding I am so fed up with all the blue glass, but it's great how blue doesn't dominate this skyline.

But people seem to be going to far giving this 9 or 10/10. Those levels must be reserved for the best, like NY and Chicago. Such marks imply Seattle is at that level when it's clearly not.

Or maybe people are comparing Seattle's skyline with comparably sized skylines, in a sort of 'second division' league as it were. If that's so, maybe these high marks are justified.

I'll give it an 8.
