I can't wait to see the skyline when all the towers are built. I gave it a 10 becuase the skyline may not be very tall, but it is very wide. You've got miles of skyline going on from Brickell to Midtown. Its a colorful and bright skyline at night. You've got a bay, a river, briges, palm trees and a beach minutes away. I'd say thats a perfect ten!

I don't know what to say about miami at this time. Until all of these 100's of new towers are done, I don't know what to rate it.

Miami is wonderful

But I must say that Miami is indeed someplace special. In my view the crystalline Aquamarine waters of Biscayne Bay, framed by gently swaying coconut palms with their feathery fronds, the Bay punctuated by tiny tropical islands is so much more beautiful than the murky leaden waters of Hong Kong's Harbor, New York's Harbor or even Chicago's Lakefront.

To those who rated Miami's skyline anything less than say a "6" ... I say: Have you ever been to Miami? Have you seen the skyline from, say, the fifteenth floor of a condo in Normandy Isles - as I have - and was astonished by the vibrant colors of turquoise skies, puffy coral pink and peach clouds, the aforementioned aquamarine waters and the emerald green trees ... focusing on the modern glassy towers reflecting in the Bay to perfection?

I live in Philadelphia. I love my city. I would not trade it for any other city. I must give credit where it is due ... and I delight in Miami - a sparkling glamorous town that makes it a world famous city and resort; clean, elegant, and so lively!

8.5...if Miami continues at the rate it's going, we're looking at 'badass' in the near future.

That is a great view of Miami. Actually both pictures are very impressive. They show how much Miami has changed as far as overall construction. The city impresses the more I see it. Too bad I voted when the poll first came out.

I've visited Miami nearly 6 years ago and stayed a whole week at the President Hotel near the Ocean Drive. It's just wonderful (if u ignore the cockroaches and gheckos up there). Floridian sun, girls, beach, lifestyle. Gotta love it

But I also had the impression that the statistics state - Miami is full of criminal energy. There had been an assault of a tiny shop right in front of where I've eaten my breakfast. And another day, some homeless apparently wanted to let burst a self tinkered bomb right next to the beach esplanade... But, nevertheless, at the end of the day I was freakin happy to spent my vacation up there.

Oh, before I forget about the skyline: My impression was, that the highrises/scrapers look quite atypical for an US-city - not to mention the word "cheap". But, somehow, it seems to work, because u find that style spread all over the city. And it has some Art Decó charme in the Miami Beach area. I used to love the way Miami looks and feels.
At least I have to give an 8/10 to the sunshine city

Lots of variety in buildings and good height. Think it is more impressive in person than in photos.
