Regarding American skylines, they are in their own league.

Yes, ranked 3rd statistically in number of tall buildings overall in the US, though still a bit too short and boxy to rank high on most people's BEST list, but the boom part 2 continues.

Survey

I want to start at this point, a survey to all Americans. Which skyline in Europe finds their at the best. I know that our skylines no chance in comparison to American and Asian cities have but I would be very interested what you think. You can choose between Moscow, London, Frankfurt, Warsaw, Paris, Rotterdam, Istanbul, Benidorm. Please you click themselves through the European skyline thread and write me.

Thank you.

All Americans, or just those from the US? I'll answer anyway: Frankfurt, London, Moscow, Paris, Rotterdam in that order.

NY, theres no competition here.

I like Canadian's skylines as well, it'll take some years to Mexico City to have a good skyline, it's more like an historic city.
