I love the view from Etobicoke (Humber Bay). You get a great cross section of the skyline from the lake inland to Yorkville where that silver tower on the left is located. That's a good 4.5 km.

I'd love to have that vantage point re-done circa 2020.

Central America is counted as part of the North American continent. Miami will more than likely stay at #5 in North America and put some distance in front of the rest of the field. Gentlemen, we are talking size here and not aesthetics, so let's not get into it.

An often forgotten skyline in North America is San Diego. Not great height because of the nearby airport, but certainly nice density. Its skyline is very Miamish hehe.

San Diego, California

Miami will slowly reel in Panama City. It will take a while, but Miami will be #4 eventually.
