LA has a nice skyline. If the inner-city wasn't so bad...

7/10

I like how it has a very dense built up downtown. Based on the design of the towers like the library tower and gas company tower I give it a 9/10. Without them 7.5/10.

I'm sure that without the CN tower and First Canadian Place, Toronto would also be a little crappy!






Anyways, I love L.A's skyline! At night, the library tower's crown just puts you in a deep ecstatic trance!

10/10!

X-Seed: Except that First Canadian Place is no where near as nice as the Library tower. Even with them Toronto is a little crappy.

LA like tokyo and london suffers from the problem of being massive so the skyscrapers arent in one place. the CBD of LA is impressive but thanks mostly to the library tower but as has already been mentioned that for a city so large its actually rather small. i give it 7.5.

Very nice, but for a city that large it needs to be BIGGER! 8.5/10 I've always really liked the Library Tower.

I give it a 8/10. Los Angeles looks good with the mountains. Now, it would be better if all of those other skylines in Los Angeles were put into downtown Los Angeles, it would look better.

I gave it an 8/10 - it's pretty nice, but it sure could do with being a bit bigger. I mean, LA is huge! Why isn't the skyline?
