I've always thought of Philadelphia as having the World's classiest skyline, as ironic as that might be. It's just a beautiful skyline that really works all times of the year, from all angles.

I love how Philadelphia's skyline looks so modern from a distance, but the streets downtown are dripping with historic architecture. It's really the best of both worlds. Thanks, Billy Penn's statue, your height limit created quite a remarkable skyline. If I had to move to the Northeast in fact, Philadelphia would be my first choice.

It's Chicago for me...today is Mies's birthday and the Google doodle is an abstract drawing of Crown Hall, one of many architectural gems on the IIT campus... Osaka's got some neat buildings, like the Umeda Sky building (and a mosaic of La Grande Jatte in one of the underground transit tunnels). I can find at least one good piece of architecture no matter where I go.

Speaking of Mies, the 3rd photo showcases his Toronto masterpiece.
