Nice to see Pittsburgh in someone's top 10. It's not all that big, but a great looking skyline.

1. NYC
2. Chicago
3. Toronto

Those 3 are easy, but after that it's a bit tougher.

Over rated : Vancouver ( buildings look shabby to me in the daytime.)
Toronto ( Boxy boxy boxy. Not enough variety. )
Panama city ( similar to Vancouver in lacks quality.)

Under rated: Los Angeles ( quality and setting with mountain back drop )
Pittsburgh ( Love the mix and variety )


About right : Chicago ( Awesome)
NYC ( Awesome, and a bit more )
Mexico City ( Massive )

Some of those new skyscrapers in Mexico City look outstanding. Still not good enough of a skyline to compete with North America's best but the potential is certainly there.

Chicago, no doubt!

The Sears Tower, Smurfit-Stone, and Trump Tower alone send this straight to the top of my list! Such a variety of heights, styles, and placement. It seems every building in the city has a backstory that I would want to listen to; and I got a chance to during a school-funded architectural tour last year! Whether it's the stark simplicity of Aon Center, the beautiful curves of Aqua, or the sheer size of Merchandise Mart, Chicago's skyline cannot be beat.

New York is close though, but not too close, due to the up-and-coming projects of the glass tower-era. Not trying to be sarcastic here; I really do like the contrast of the "millennial" and chic glass and steel towers, such as the new WTC.

After NYC I'd have to go with the Emerald City, Seattle.

Philadelphia is so under-rated in every aspect ... including skyline of course. By far my favourite city along the east coast.
