Please post pictures of cities at, under, or around 100k people.
Here are two pictures of Niagara Falls Canada (about 70k people)one current and one future rendering of actual buildings that going to be constructed:

I guess many tourist type cities would have an unproportional amount of towers considering its size. That would explain Altantic City, Niagara Falls & Miami Beach. Over 100,000 there's of course Las Vages.

As for Londonindyboy, don't you have to suck on your pacifier or something...grow the hell up.

^ Yes, the "population" of those cities is considerably higher when you factor in tourists and other travelers. There are a lot more than 100,000 people on the streets in Miami Beach.

whoah, a skyline in the middle of a rural country? I've never seen anything like that before! It looks like farms with a skyline plopped in there.

That's very interesting!
