Thank you everyone for the pictorial contributions. Some of these skylines would be more appropriate in the "Best North American Skyline" thread, in my opinion. Also, is best if we all limit our posts to a single picture, that way we do not overwhelm the page with endless amounts of pictures and no useful discussion. After all, this is a "discuss" thread

Duly noted Jaun Paolo... duly noted

I just went up and deleted a few pics from the NY and Minneapolis portion of my posts. As for various US skylines being posted here I would submit to you that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. What makes one skyline better than the other is completely subjective.

Sure, some skylines might not be as dense as others but they may more than make up for that with symmetry, aesthetics, history, grittiness and being extremely urban. If my view is in error then please let me know and kindly excuse my ignorance.

All of that said, don't worry, I won't overwhelm these pages with pictures of Detroit or Cleveland, or Minneapolis, etc. But to get a glimpse of these old, historic skylines is indeed refreshing and a nice change of pace. Again, if I am wrong, my bad

.

If there were five categories by we rate skylines what they should be actually?

I would say Height, Density, Quality, Extent and? Harmony? Aesthetics?

I would say:
Density (number of buildings, proximity of taller towers)
Quality/Aesthetics (which is highly opinionated)
Expanse (along a horizontal margin; are there any satellite clusters of towers/ multiple CBDs?)
Setting (also highly opinionated)
Height (tallest skyscraper, number of supertalls)

Expanse is better therm than extent I agree on this one.

But I really don't think we should rate setting. We are rating skyline after all so we shouldn't relate to other things like city living conditions, wealth, size and setting.

Also in 1 to 10 scale 10 would be currently best city in the world in that specified term like 10/10 density is NYC and HK, 10/10 height is Dubai.

I look at height, layout, scale, architectural diversity, layering, iconic structures, quality, and height variance.

Fair enough... thanks for the heads up guys

I don't post much but I had a little extra time on my hands this week. From now on I will have a much better idea of what to look for. That said, as a fan of vintage architecture, some of the pre-war/art deco skyscrapers in Detroit are quite amazing. If I run across more of them in the future I will post them on the North American forum.

I agree with this... especially since I now have an idea of you 'all look for in this particular forum

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and 'best' is subjective. We don't all prioritize the same things, but I've been enjoying your choices thus far.
