I love San Francisco. The whole idea of San Francisco. My favorite skyscraper is the trans-am pyramid. But unlike some cities, San Franciso isn't about its skyline. It's so much more than that. It's about its neighbourhoods, character, culture, its incredible setting and colourful history. It represents freedom and individuality like no place else on earth. Too many supertalls would take the focus away from that. The skyline is really just the icing on the cake.

like it for its density, and I like the pyramid, but still the skyline isn't really that impressive overall.

7.5 for skyline


But it is very picturesc and an amazing overall city.

10 for city

San Francisco is one of the great cities of the world. The skyline could use a bit more flair, but it still gets a "9'.

Yes, San Francisco is a very nice city, though a bit overshadowed by Sacramento, about 1 1/2 hours northeast. lol

I even put a stupid little "lol" at the end in an attempt to keep gullible people from failing to note the obvious sarcasm. I guess that wasn't enough.

7/10. I think the city looks great when you're on Market St, but I it's way too white with just a few brown/tan buildings scattered throughout.

I think the GGB is just slightly overrated too, but I guess that doesn't count as skyline.

San Francisco is beautiful. However, most of the beauty of the city comes from its fantastic location and natural surroundings, and not its skyline. On the whole, San Francisco has been too timid architecturally, and a bevy of laws and ordinances has made interesting and innovative development too difficult. For the skyline, because it should be larger, more interesting, and less tan, 7.5/10. (I still think SF is a wonderful city, but we're rating skylines here.)
