Toronto's skyline is much larger than people seem to realize.

Santa Fé looks very much a mixture from Europe and US! More than most other cities in Latin America!

I've always considered Vancouver's skyline to be one of the best on the continent:

Vancouver is sooooooo gorgeous! Just look at the skyline twinkling like a bunch of diamonds and the beautiful mountain range behind!!! Is it true you have even palm trees in V'couver? BTW: The lights on the top of the mountain,.... what is that???

Yup, apparently there are palm trees along English bay and on people's properties. These aren't the large palm trees you'd see in tropical/mediterranean areas though.

1 New York City
2 Chicago
3 Toronto
4 Philadelphia
5 Los Angeles
6 Vancouver
7 Miami
8 San Francisco
9 Seattle
10 Atlanta

I am really surprised how many people don't realize just how large Philadelphia is.

Mexico City is huge but the skyline does not form one giant mass.
