I think the best way to compare the sylines it to take a look at skyscraperpage.com. I think every skiline could has a beauatiful photo as well as it could has an uglu photo.

For me:

1.New York City
2.Seattle
3.Los Angeles
4.San Francisco
5.Vancouver
6.Atlanta
7.Toronto
8.Miami
9.Chicago
10. Dallas or Las Vegas

I wonder to place Honolulu in my ranking but i decided to put cities which are in North America, not in North American countries.

Is the Panama Nation in North America? I think it is... So, Panama City isn't more impressive than a few Sky Lines I've seen around here?

Geographically perhaps, but no, I don't think Panama is really a part of North America. Neither is Mexico in that sense (culturally).
