If I could i'd give it a 1000000000000000000000! If you've never been to Seatle GO THERE SOON! Seattle has the most classiest skyline ever. The entire city is very interesting too. It is a great place to live. You all need to go up to the Observation Deck at the Bank o'America building if you can. It is amazing. The setting of the city is spectacular. You can't really compare it to any east-coast cities because Seattle's entire culture is influenced by the mountains and abundance of water, like all places in the Pacific Northwest. If you get the chance, go/come to Seattle. Stop by Coeur d'Alene Idaho if you are driving from the EC.

Seattle has to be one of the best skylines in North America. There are tons of inovative buildings in the skyline (if you look close).

Examples are Rainier Square built in 1977 with it's signature pedistal base. The IBM built in 1964 was a prototype for the World Trade Center Towers. The Smith Tower was once the tallest commercial building outside of New York City (1914). Other interesting buildings are: Two Union Square (1989), Washington Mutual Tower(1988), US Bank Centre (1989), The new US. Court House (2004), and even the Seattle Municipal Tower (1990)which has solar panels for the exterior roof coverings.. and who can forget the Bank of Amercia Tower, when completed was the tallest building west of the Mississippi and is still one of the tallest buildings on the Pacific Coast (1985).

Space Needle

Here's a couple of pics of downtown Seattle and the Space Needle taken from Kerry Park, Queen Anne hill.

Overated. According to this page http://www.library.tudelft.nl/~egram/skylines.htm (a website ranks the World's Best Skylines by building heights), Seattle is ranked 36th in the world.

Depends on the type of polling.

According to the same web site, Seattle ranks fourth in the United States and fifth in the world (behind New York, Chicago, Houston, and Hong Kong) when polled according to Appearance.

Its not that great not that dense and not very unique. I would say its the 5th best city in the USA and 8th best in North America. The main problum is the city needs to expand its just a strip of buildings a long the water and doesnt take advantage of its natural setting.

Seattle is better, of course.

I give it a 9.5/10.
