Just like when Manitopiaaa called Miami a Latin city. This is not a Latin city. It is not in Latin America. It has a very strong Latin influence and is even conisdered by many to be the de facto capital of Latin America, but it is an American city in the State of Florida which is one of the United States of America. Get out of here with that Miami is a Latin city BS.

I have a similar reaction when people call Montreal, French or European. It's a Canadian city right down to its core. Having outdoor cafes and lots of pre-war architecture doesn't make you French.

London has more in common with France than Montreal.

I was under the impression that the various "Best Skyline" threads in this section of the forum were per geographic region and not per political region. Including Honolulu in the best "North American Skyline" thread would be similar to including Hong Kong in the best "European Skyline" thread if it still was under British control. Or like insisting the skyline of Agana in Guam belongs in this thread while Guam clearly is more geographically related to Astralasia or even Asia than to North America. Honolulu belongs in the Australasian thread in my opinion. And that thread should be re-named to Oceania instead of Australasia since at this point there is nowhere to include the skylines of cities in the pacific islands [including Agana]. This will be consistent with the skyline of San Juan, Puerto Rico [USA] being included in the best "Central America and Caribbean Skyline" and not on the North American thread.

Let me see what Yellow Fever has to say about this.

Couple holes to poke in your argument. First of all, Hawaii is actually a full fledged state, not a territory like Guam or Puerto Rico. Also, while Hong Kong may have been under British control, it was always recognized as temporary and never officially an addition to the mother country.

Second, if you look at a map, Honolulu is significantly closer to the continental US than it is to Australia. For example, to get to the closest major cities on those continents, it's either 2558 miles to Los Angeles, or 4701 miles to Brisbane. (well over 80% further away!!!)

When you combine these 2 reasons (not to mention Hawaii is already further east than the rest of the area you want to lump it with) it's pretty easy to see why Honolulu is still going to be in the North American thread and not the Oceanic thread.
