Toronto taken from the western edge of downtown. That's Lamport Stadium and Liberty Village on the right.

The "Why isn't Panama included" thing is my favorite running joke of this thread lol.

A cool angle of Manhattan found by JuanPaulo. The newer towers are really making their mark, and you can even see Hudson Yards from this angle:

Everyone has a different opinion, but I think Atlanta has a much better Skyline than Miami.

I have been to Both, and driving I 75 thru Downtown you can see that Atlanta is much better than Miami

I think the Atlanta skyline is more linear and the picture is probably taken from a highrise in the downtown cluster that does not shown in the picture. In any case, I personally think that both Miami and Seattle have a better skyline than Atlanta.

That pic is missing downtown, which is by far the densest part and quite impressive in its own right. The rest is too suburban for my tastes, but the skyline as a whole is very tall, dramatic, and expansive.

For the complete opposite of Atlanta, here is the very dense, but unfortunately short.... Baltimore.

Baltimore is like Philadelphia before it started building taller than the City Hall.

Pittsburgh's skyline is impressive but it hasn't really changed in 20 years.

Not entirely correct, Pittsburgh recently completed a skyscraper in the middle of the downtown core if I am not mistaken.
