New York, Boston, Philadelphia, Montreal.... those are the big ones. I have heard good things about Charleston and Savannah but have never been.

Diversity of what? Skylines?

This thread is about the best North American skylines. What are you asking ?

That is a very difficult question to answer accurately because the city densities vary wildly in European cities compared to those in North America, and areas chosen for measurement vary wildly from country to country. I don't think there is any clearcut rule of thumb. Which neighbourhoods or inner suburbs included in each statistic seems to be pretty arbitrary. I think it would be difficult to really accurately compare. According to some random figures I looked up online, a number of eastern North American cities seem have densities between 4100-4400 per kmē --Toronto, Montreal, Philadelphia, Chicago; all similar to Warsaw or Naples. New York is the densest in North America at 10194 per kmē. Berlin comes in at 3750 per kmē, London at 5100 per kmē, and Paris at 3550 per kmē. I know it is a matter of personal civic pride for people as to the density figures of their own city so I hope we don't get derailed too far into that area, bearing in mind this is a skyline photo thread!
Again, I'm sure you can find a myriad of different figures as people select certain parts of a city to inflate or deflate the numbers, but I just did a quick internet search for these numbers. I don't put a great deal of store into them because they are probably comparing apples to oranges.

He said diversity but I guess he meant density.

I like how those 'dunno' icons are moving in unison one under the other.
