Looking forward to a friendly little building competition with our neighbor to the north, Montreal.
That will be an interesting rivalry to watch unfold. Montreal and Boston are twins in so many ways; one anglo-American the other franco-American.

The Mouth of the Miami River

This is nowhere near all of Miami's skyscrapers. This just shows the density shaping up around the mouth of the river.

I will give it some credit because I know that it is a young city slowly filling in and improving, but coming from the north I found southern cities' lack of density and cohesiveness as somewhat of a shock. Charlotte seemed to be the biggest offender in that department, at least in my own personal travels.
This is what I've felt for a while with regards to quite a few North American cities..certain angles with the photo really do flatter to deceive.

This last one is part of the overflow from Longwood, BU, and Harvard (includes a Boston/Cambridge mix)

That bridge has had a tremendous amount of impact on Dallas' skyline. Outstanding.

And hopefully with all the new significant downtown development Houston's getting, the skyline should get a big upgrade in the aesthetics department.
