It may not be the biggest, but Id say its one of the top 5 most iconic skylines in the entire world.

You'll find what one considers iconic varies wildly depending on what country's media one receives. LA or an LA scene is quite predictably in the news constantly in the United States. One only need cross the border into Canada and images of LA, SF, NY, Chicago are replaced by Vancouver, Toronto, Calgary, Montreal.

Likewise, Australians see Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, and Perth constantly. What's iconic to an American isn't necessarily iconic globally. Manhattan is an exception to that. Hollywood helps market the Hollywood sign and maybe typical southern California highway/landscape but I doubt most people would be able to recognize the LA skyline as being LA.

I can but I learned to recognize the LA skyline from SSC.

Not much of a skyline but truly a phenomenal little city that doesn't get much love. Portland, Maine, from flickr.

Every foreigner I have met save a couple dozen (Im talking multiple hundreds of people) has heard of Los Angeles and has at least some idea as to what it roughly looks like. American media is the most dominant and widespread media in the world. That is an objective fact. Therefore, aside from the skylines in a person's own country, said person is more likely to recognize a prominent American skyline than a prominent skyline of any other foreign country. That doesnt necessarily mean that such skylines are better than others. But it does mean that they are generally more recognizable (i.e. iconic).

Hollywood is indeed pervasive but I stand by my view that the LA skyline wouldn't rank in the top 5 most recognizable skylines world wide.
