I suppose 150m does make more sense in a north American context. It's just never made much sense in Canada to use that benchmark. 150m is too exclusionary when looking at Canadian cities. It's only very recently that cities here have built beyond 150m in any significant quantity at all.

I suppose in China they don't bother looking at anything under 300m these days.

And you honestly consider this to be one of the best skylines in North America?

I think it's a nice skyline Puerto Vallarta, you should also show other cities... Detroit, Phoenix, Denver and so on.

If we go as low as the numbers of tall buildings in some of the cities you suggest, then we might as well include every city on the North American continent, but then, "best" can very subjective. It's in the eye of the beholder, but I don't think including cities like Puerto Vallarta is realistic.
