Detroit has a nice skyline- I love the older architecture. I gave it an 8.

5.....I only like the Renissance Center....which practically defines the city. No offense but Detroit had its day (early 1900's) and needs to economically come back.

the renaissance center almost dominates the whole skyline.. the skyline is good, with a fine amount of old scrapers. mix of old and new 6.5

There is more to a skyline than just height. Detroit has one of the finest collections of pre-depression skyscrapers anywhere. There is a very nice mix of architecture as well.

7.5/10 RenCen dominates, but the older buildings add a nice little NYC touch.

I'd give it a 7 based on size, waterfront, and great old architecture, but the ren center doesn't do much for me and actually throws the skyline out of balance.

I kind of like it. Lots of potential. Is it a lively downtown? Any department stores, restaurants and theaters? Cool looking older skyscrapers. 8.0

I've never been to Detriot but I can say I'm not very impressed by the skyline, or the city in general, from what I've seen in pictures or heard from people. I should actually go before making an opinion, but why would I be going to Detroit? Anyways, the historic buildings are always nice but a large American city with 5 million people shouldn't have only historic buildings. There are a few modern towers I kind of like, but there should be more of them. Good location next to the river, they should (and it looks like they are) capitalize on that. And Ren Cen is not that great IMO. Sorry but this skyline is lacking and should be better. 5/10
