What "nothingness"? If you think that, then you must have NEVER been there.

And you don't walk around a 'skyline', you walk around Downtown which, as far as a "dead zone" goes, is pretty exaggerated.

very poor skyline
not enough buildings
Too many parking lots
No Continuous urban Neighborhood pattern.

Isn't this true of most American sunbelt cities... the downtown is pretty much a business district only (in Australia we call them Central Business Districts)... so come 6pm when all office workers have gone home... they are pretty empty??

9.5, beautiful skyline and buildings, giving deference to New York and Chicago I think it's arguably the third best skyline in US.
