my list would be:
1. Toronto
2. Los Angeles
3. Houston
4. Austin ( the current one with all the new buildings )
5. Atlanta
6. Phily
7. San Francisco
8. Charlotte
9. Dallas
10. Vancouver

I personally don't find anything appealing in the New York skyline because its an eyesore u really can't see the true beauty of it.

Honolulu, Hawaii skyline its not the best but its worth mentioning (pretty impressive for the World's most isolated city with a population of 365,000, which over 1/3 lives in high rises).






Another angle

While I have to say as a european most NA cities are amazing, even Omaha, Nebraska is fairly impressive to my Old World eyes:



But I think New York and Chicago are fighting it out with Hong Kong and Shanghai for best skyline in the world, the others, and I include Toronto in this just are not in that league for density, interest and fame!

My personal list for best North American skylines:

1. San Francisco. It has a great collection of skyscrapers, and it's tallest is a standout. It can also boast something very few, if any, cities can say, and that is it has bridges adding to the skyline. It also has the hills adding that natural addition to the skyline.

2. Chicago. It's just sheer volume and height, that city. It also has quite the waterfront. Plus, who can argue that it's only right the birthplace of the skyscraper have one of the best skylines?

3. Los Angeles. Sure, for a city it's size, the skyline is relatively small. However, what it lacks in quantity is definitely made up for in quality, with Downtown Los Angeles having such gems as Library Tower, Figueroa at Wilshire, and One and Two California Plazas.

4. Vancouver. It may not be the tallest, but it's clean, glassy (literally) skyline is beautiful with nature as its background.

5. Seattle. Very much for the same reasons as Vancouver, with the exception of the height. When seen from Elliot Bay, it has amazing balance: the Space Needle balances out Columbia Center and Smith Tower.

6. Calgary. It's just so jam-packed, it has a great feeling of density. It's also very modern, giving it a clean vibe.

7. Minneapolis. Quite an impressive skyline for a city of that size. A city teeming with PoMo greats, it's especially beautiful at night.

Now, I have a feeling I'm gonna get some crap for not listing New York. Here's the way I've always seen New York: it's not one skyline. It's numerous skylines. You have Lower Manhattan Queens, Midtown, Jersey City, and some others I must be forgetting. It's too massive to be listed as one skyline for me. There's my two cents.

NYC and Chicago are the clear winners. About the rest I have really become insecure. Look at the amount of great skylines in NA! There is Minneapolis, Seattle, Philly, LA, San Francisco, Miami, Houston, Toronto, Vancouver... It is really HARD!

Honolulu may not be one of the best, but it is without any doubt one of the most exotic. Great!
