Cleveland has a great skyline. It has a mixture of balance and layers of time, two key aspects in how I define a great skyline. It's very classy

My list follows this source for the most part except I placed San Francisco and Philadelphia one city higher in North America because of their density.

I find it strange that you do not like the Panama City skyline since is very reminiscent of the Miami skyline.

As with Benidorm, one building practically ruins the whole skyline for me. And there are a few others that just don't set well with me.

It sure as hell ain't envy. It's personal taste. I wouldn't want that skyline, just like some people who think certain buildings that aren't my taste look so great. All I have to say in those cases is "Thank God it's not in Miami!"
