I have to give it a 9.5. Looks dense and very tall. Nice variety of architectural styles, not to mention some lovely glass towers. Better than Philly and L.A., IMHO. Keep on keepin' on, Houston!!!!!!!!

The skyline as seen from the Loop 610 Houston Ship Channel bridge is unbeatable-it lines up the Texas Medical Center, Galleria, Greensway Plaza and Downtown skylines into one long Manhattan-esque skyline. I don't have a photo and can't find one-maybe a Houstonian can grab one and post it. Difficult to do at 75mph on a 12 lane bridge 135feet above the water, but a knock-out view.

Very nice. In my opinion this one is number 5 in North America, only surpassed by NY, Chicago, Toronto and Vancouver.

8.

i would have given a 7 for the downtown because it is not impressive and looks 80ish but the last picture that shows the other skylines makes it a 9.
please post some pictures of the other skylines.

and dont worry about the 3 or less, every city has them

Can't believe I haven't rated Houston yet.

Well then, I must say how I love its many skylines and the buildings that make them up, but I think a little more density couldn't hurt either. Then again, Houston is the breeding ground for great skyscrapers in Texas. I give it a 9/10.

Go HOUSTON!!!
