Very nice collection of Atlanta pictures. The skyline looks dense from that vantage point - probably due to the superposition of downtown, midtown, and buckhead.

NYC (midtown manhattan - downtown manhattan - downtown brooklyn - Long Island City),
Shouldn't Jersey City and possibly Newark also be considered satellite clusters of NYC?

They're their own cities with significant populations. Not to mention they belong to a different state. I guess you could count White Plains because it has a few standout towers. I'm not familiar with the Missagua-Toronto situation but people in the suburban skylines thread seem to consider it a suburb of Toronto.

^ I'd add Yonge-Eglinton to Toronto, that area is booming with many new skyscraper developments.

Here's an example: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1797963

It's spelled Mississauga. Mississauga is its own city with its own mayor but is part of metro Toronto. It's an independent place but grew mainly due to its proximity to Toronto. Toronto corporate taxes used to be high so companies set up shop just beyond city limits in low tax Mississauga. When Mississauga filled up the big growth move to the next place further out: Brampton.

Mississauga City Centre is a major node in metro Toronto. Toronto's main airport is also in Mississauga.
