Thanks DZH22, that explanation and link to Google Maps helped a lot. I think I've got it now.

What strikes me about skyline shots is how deceiving they can be. You can never tell from a skyline shot how vibrant or nice a city is at street level. I sometimes look at Montreal photos and that point gets hammered home. Old Montreal or the plateau barely registers in a skyline shot but I know how amazing they are in person. It's the same thing with Beacon Hill. I've seen lots of photos of it up close so know how nice it is. Even my neighbourhood. It actually looks quite bland (even depressing) from the air but its a delight to walk around.

Conversely I view some cities with fabulous skylines but I have a sneaking suspicion they're not that great to walk around.

That old historic building in NYC to the left of the building with the gold roof is jogging my memory from a trip back in the 90s. Is that a police building or something on those lines?
