Hmmm... in my opinion it would go like this:

1 - New York
2 - Chicago
3 - Toronto
4 - L.A.
5 - Atlanta
6 - Seattle
7 - Philly
8 - Boston
9 - Vancouver
10 - Dallas

Mind you, I'm not 100% up to date with all the construction that is going on in north America... only a little. But that's a rough list.

It's not a bad list at all, though I'd put Houston in there. I see you put Atlanta as number 5.

So what would be the first? NYC? Boston?

He said nothing is comparable to it in NA (meaning it's too different to compare) not that it's his favourite.

Boston at street level is unparalleled in the country, no doubt. Can't wait to visit it again this August.

My favorite has gotta be Boston. Dense, historic, walkable, human-scaled but quite the vast and diverse urban area. I think the hills and haphazardness makes it that much more fun to explore, with random views of the skyline and surrounding cit(ies) popping up all over the place. Also it doesn't hurt that it's both on the ocean and by a large river, and since it's old and established there are tons of mature trees so it feels like a city in a forest, especially parts of Cambridge. Also, unlike NYC, I can drive in without paying a toll, and usually park for free

Skyline is quite expansive. Sorry for the overflow but sometimes these things just happen... Mainly these are from the Mass Ave Bridge over the Charles River.

Nice pictures! It could very well end up being my favourite as well, but unfortunately I've yet to visit.

Departing MIA for New York!

I've been wanting to capture this perspective for a long time. You just have to get the right departure angle. Looks like flying to New York makes for a good departure shot. Too bad the weather wasn't better. The skyline actually looked more huge from up there than I thought it would. Pictures don't do it justice.

I've never seen Vancouver from that angle. It's interesting to see the city without the mountain back drop.
