I always expect Dallas' skyline to be way bigger. I guess everything isn't bigger in Texas.

Sorry dude, but Panama City, Panama is not in North America, nor is it part of the US.

Panama City has really made a mark, but I have them in 7th.

yeah! i think it dropped one rank lower from my previous list.. it's still one of my favorites in North America though..very impressive for a city of its size

after seeing a couple more of mid-sized cities' skylines, I think my list will change in the near future. I got more impressed with Atlanta. San Francisco on the other hand, is more impressive in photos, but still great!

Yeah, before SSC I just assumed Panama City looked like every other city in that part of north America. It's night and day between it and anything in Costa Rica, Guatemala, etc. I'd score Panama City higher if the buildings were of higher quality. I suppose that will come eventually.

Atlanta and Miami have a lot of decent buildings, but I've never warmed to either of them. Minneapolis is one of those smaller skylines I just love. Quality over quantity. So many gorgeous buildings all packed into a tight downtown cluster.

What about Los Angeles and Houston? As you can see, the competition is tough. The first 3 are easy for me, but after that it's a toss up.

We have discussed Panama being in the north america section in this thread probably at least a hundred times and it came to the conclusion that since there is no such continent of central america, we've decided to adopt Panama as one of our own. Case closed!

I would honestly rate Panama City higher if they didn't have that weird twisty building. A parking lot is preferable

But yes, overall Panama City is very impressive. Obviously they lack some quality buildings but just the density and height is impressive on its own.

Hmmm let me reopen the case then. Panama is not part of Central America either and by history, it was part of Colombia which is South America. Were you saying something?

Dude, Panama has always been part of Central america since gaining independence from Colombia.

and if you have a problem of accepting Panama being in this section, read my post again

LA is a pretty little skyline in an endless suburban sprawl and Houston is decent but they didn't make my cut. it's probably a matter of personal taste for these skylines.. and yeah, I agree, bias aside, NY, Toronto and Chicago is way ahead of the rest, no doubt!
