Hamilton - Canada

Here are pictures of my city Hamilton. A regular city it is located in Ontario Canada with a population of 504,500 and a metro population of 689,700. What is unique to this city is that it is located in a valley and links onto the Niagara escarpment, this makes for a terrific view of the downtown core when on the mountain. There's not alot of density of really tall skyscrapers but the city does have a few highrises. Hamilton is known for it's historical buildings and a spectacular view especially at night. Check out the photo links (sorry some of them are not very big):

Take a look at all the night photos here:

If you like to see even more photos/and information go here:

So what does everyone think? Overall I would rate it a 8/10 just because I really like the view from the mountain.

I agree the setting is great. A skyline needs a decent vantage point and this city has one. Overall though it's lacking in both quality and quantity of higrises. 6/10

Not bad, could do with some taller buildings to lift and expand the skyline.
6.5/10

7/10 for me, but I believe that Hamilton was already done as a thread in the skylines forum, not meaning to put a damper. I remember coming across it.
You'll certainly getting stunning views of Hamilton's skyline in a LOT of areas on the mountain/escarpment, which not too many cities can offer.

Here ya go. It's way in there. It's on the 18th page of the skylines forum. But you're showing support for your city and that's good.

Hi Victoria! It's great to have another Hamiltonian here. I'm from Hamilton too.

I recommend you check out the Ontario section in Canada. There are a couple of pictures of Hamilton.

Here are photos I took from Hamilton West Harbour http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=143897

Here's another photo tour I did from Downtown Hamilton http://skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=124997

6, no more projects to make the downtown a lot better, only a few construction of lowrises, not tall landmarks.
I've been there, like i said, the downtown really sucks

All the links to see Hamilton skyline aren't working anymore so all you got is 4 pictures. So here are some more skyline pictures of Hamilton.

Always a skyline shot from Hamilton is from Sam Lawrence Park
