Another beautiful North American skyline, perfectly blended with Mt. Rainier in the background! Space Needle looks out-of-date, though...

9/10

Absolutely stunning.

Great skyline, best place for 360 degree views is the Bank of America Tower Observation Deck. 9.5/10.

Though not the largest, Seattle's skyline is one of the best in the world. Seattle reminds me of Sydney in how it takes advantage of its surrounding natural beaty to enhance its skyline. I give Seattle a 10.

A FAKE CITY!!!!!!!

You can't judge a city skyline by it's low density residential areas!

sOmeOne, I have never seen a "dead "downtown" pic of Seattle. How does the residential sector suck? As I have only seen beautiful residential pictures of Seattle. How is the population way to small for a city like Seattle? Are you saying it is so big yet it the population doesn't represent the size and beauty of a city like Seattle? Because in a way, that is a compliment. Fake city? Wow, I don't see how you could label a beautiful city like Seattle as fake. Your post instantly gets no credit in my book and I don't believe you live in Seattle.

I am surprised that Seattle has the kind of skyline it has. It looks a lot like Los Angeles with the heightage of Chicago! Definite 10/10.

Did someone say the city center is dead? Someone needs to tell the truth.

9 out of 10. Seattle has a very impressive skyline that is very dominant and proud looking. A lot of that is due to the density and height. It can be viewed from almost any angle and retain its' majesty. My favorite view is from the ferry leaving Bremerton. It's fun to watch for the skyline and see it pop into view for the first time. Then as you get closer and closer to downtown, the buildings get bigger and bigger. It's awesome. From the ferry terminal the buildings look even bigger than they are because downtown is built on a hill.

That said, Seattle lacks a building that gives it a unique identity. Nothing is instantly identifiable like San Fran's TA Pyramid or Denver's "Cash Register". However, Seattle has the Space Needle so they need not worry about that.

The view from the 73rd floor of the Bank of America building is disappointing. Although it has impressive views overlooking Puget Sound, it did not allow a complete 360 degree view of the city. I haven't been there in a couple of years so maybe that's changed. Anyway, the Space Needle is still the best way to see it above street level.
