Miami, Toronto and Philly probably have some of the most underrated skylines.

It just seemed more orderly to me. Ah, well, it doesn't matter anyways. I'll get over it.

One more showing the whole place from about 9 miles out. Boston's strength is in it's massing, with 16 buildings over 500' (18 over 150m). Tallest 2 buildings to the right kind of getting lost in the fog. City's 3rd tallest is supposed to resume construction (from a currently excavated hole) on June 4, and should show up towards the right side of the left cluster.

Second. JP Morgan Chase is 1,002 feet, and Wells Fargo is 992 feet. However, Wells Fargo is considerably larger (1.8 million square feet). It's also in the shape of an "S" when viewed from above since it's the HQ for the bank (S=$).
