You mad TO has a MUCH better skyline than any Australian schitty? Ya, you mad

There's no reasoning with you lot, is there? You just assume people are jealous, or 'hating' on you if they say something even remotely negative about your city. Grow up. The world isn't anywhere near as in love with you as you seem to think.

I give my reasons, whether you like it or not, I don't really care. End of the day, it's my opinion, not yours.

I think it's you who's mad though

I'm not going to give a top list, because I'm no expert. I've taken a look at some pictures of different skylines, but it's just hard to judge. It depends very much on from how far the picture is taken and from what angle.

Though I very much like New York, San Francisco and Seattle.

Maybe he's not even from Toronto. I am, but I couldn't care less if you put it in your top 5 or not. It's your opinion, I don't know why people get so offended if we're not included.

Oh snap! I have to admit Dime had that coming. He shouldn't assume that observations he dislikes must be due to bias.

I may have had it coming, but he obviously disliked what I said and assumed I was bias due to Toronto apparently having a better skyline than any Australian "schitty" - guess we're in the same boat.

It's not like I jump up and down crying bias, hate, or that someone is mad when they rank Melbourne above Sydney...

Im not biased. Any OBJECTIVE scale will tell you that Toronto has a better skyline than ANY australian city. Number of highrises [check], number of buildings above 150m [check], scale of the core [check], and this is all putting the entirety of any australian city against just downtown Toronto. Don't forget that Toronto has more mini-skylines than any australian city as well. I opened up the thread about mini skylines in australian cities and literally started laughing at the comparisons you guys were making to Toronto.

Why am I defending Toronto? Because I've lurked these forums for a really long time and have noticed that virtually all australian members have a serious inferiority complex, especially when it comes to topics relating to our northern neighbours.

Edit: Fun fact; Toronto has almost as many high-rises as Sydney+Melbourne+Gold Coast City+Brisbane put together

yea but austrailia has FAR better natural suroundings personaly melbourne and sydney have better looking skyscrapers even tho they may not be as tall as toronto. also harbour bridge and sydney opera house are far more iconic than the cn tower. id say sydney is better than toronto and melbourne can compare. stats dont define a skyline

Guys, please stay on topic, this thread is for the discussion of north American skylines only. Everybody is entitle to their own opinions about which city has the best skyline. Remember that a downtown that has more and taller skyscrapers doesn't necessary mean it has a better skyline.
