As I said, it is AESTHETICS. However, I found out on most internet forums, most people are dumb, have little education in Architecture or urban design. This means, most people's opinions tend to be very stupid and moronic, and they can't find a city with great old classic skyscrapers, a collection of historic national landmark bridges spanning three rivers to be beautiful. Most people like the new boring modern skyscrapers of Houston, but couldn't tell the difference between old iconic skyscrapers like the US Steel building. Just like City-data.com, this forum, and skyscraperpage, they tend to be full of idiots.

Houston has a very boring skyline. Just like Atlanta it offers modern and boring looking buildings in a hideous sprawl of a city. Just because there are more higher modern buildings in a ugly wastland doesn't mean it beats it in aesthetics.[/
So basically because they do not agree with you," people are idiots with moronic thoughts"
?Evey city does not need to have the same aesthetic i which to make it architecturally vibrant.Worldwide there are many publication which grant cities like my city(Atlanta)very impressive remarks in urban design.The AIA has ranked a couple of Atlanta buildings in B]The 150 favorite pieces of American architecture[/B].

What is stupid is the fact that you probably have never even ventured to see these cities yourself,in person.If you had you would see and know that Atlanta has a good bit of classical architectural styles much like the cities you hold in such regard.From one of the earliest Flatiron buildings built in 1881 that predates NYC's version.There are several buildings that date back to the early1900s.

Sprawl?Wasteland?Yes you sound more like an elitist snob who regurgitates stuff and denigrates places because he thinks it makes him seem like and intellectual because he read or took a few architechual classes instead of thinking for yourself.

I thought we were discussing "North America" not Central America....last time I checked, Panama City, Panama was in Central America, or are we discussing Best "America" Skyline as the continent of America? Sorry...I am confused...anyways....I think Miami, Florida is a nice city...but my top 5 goes to ....
1. NYC
2. Chicago
3. Toronto
4. Los Angeles
5. San Francisco
