Kevin I think the reason there are a lot of low numbers in the city rating is the fact the Miami has grown so rapidly and the skyline literally doubled in the last five years. kind of creates an envy.. other cities in the country do wish they could grow as fast.. and you can't blame them... It has surpassed most cities in the U.S. becoming the third largest skyline in the country according to the 2006 almanac of architecture and design. I never cared for our skyline two years ago...I loved my birthtown NYC.. and Chicago's skyline I still love. but seeing what Miami has done has made me love our skyline and just waiting to see what will happen next is truly amazing. To me Miami is looking like a Chicago with palm trees. More colorful too! It's just fresher looking..maybe cause all these buildings are so new... You look at other cities in Miami like Aventura, Sunny Isles, Bal Harbor, or even Coral Gables..We are a city of condos. If you don't like condos then pretty much you won't like our skyline.. Afterall we are in Florida and I'm sure most people wouldn't mind living on a 40th floor having the sun wake them up rising from the nice ocean view..It's what people come down here for.. A piece of tropical paradise.. In Florida I think you will always have more Condos than Offices.. Miami is more for PLAY not work and we all know that! ya feel me! 10/10


from google- Jamesgood

Miami

we have no more land to build homes, and as long as people keep moving down here the only way now is to go up!

Anti-America fad is also high online these days you know, which helped contribute to the negative votes. Honestly, there is absolutely no way Miami should receive a score 3 or below. The city looks better/cleaner than 90% of cities posted on this forum.

Miami is definitly a beautfiul, scenic place, but to say other cities dont look as clean is probably biased. ever been to Long Beach? Seattle? San Diego?

9/10- in general rate!

We looked at mountains until dawn, and then when dawn came, it was too pretty for me - there was pink and blue and gold, in the sky, and on icy places, brilliant pink and gold flashes, and the snow was colored too, and I said," Oh," and sighed; and each moment was more beautiful than the one before; and I said, " I love you, Momma." Then I fell asleep in her arms.
That was happiness then.

While I like it, I think it really needs itself a spire, or two, or a defined crown of some sort. Not sure if I've rated it yet but I'll do it again.. 8.5/10 w/one bayfront will be a 9.

That's a nice pic of Coral Gables, the "other" downtown in Miami. I can see my condo on there.
