It looks like a complete 360 degrees. Never seen anything like this before.

Amazing Montreal pic. (obviously not mine) If you click into the flickr you can get a huge version. In that case it's the best pic I have ever seen of the city. Very few cities on this thread can compete with that density! Montreal is easily my second favorite city in North America.

It reminds me of San Francisco from that angle.

Hmmm looks like it disappeared. I must have linked it wrong. I actually just basically copied it off a post from skyscraperpage in the Canadian Skylines section. Oh well, just click in I guess and eat your hearts out

It could be the photographer changed his privacy settings or download privileges.

Interestingly, from the right angle, (looking over Southie especially), Boston reminds people of San Francisco! 3 amazing cities.

Here's a good example, again not my picture. It's quoted from Archboston. The skyline in the background is basically just part of the runoff, in this case the Longwood/Northeastern/BMC area. This is just a partial section of one neighborhood (Southie), and if you panned slightly left you'd be at the harborwalk/beach! If you panned to the right, the Back Bay skyline would come into view. Boston is pretty hilly too. Probably about 1/2 as hilly as San Francisco.

I've heard the same and vice versa. I mean going back years.

That photo of 'Southie' in Boston is what Halifax would have looked like if it had grown into a bigger city. The streets on peninsula Halifax are eerily similar. If you cropped off the top half of that photo it could step in for Halifax no problem.
