Awesome skyline, one of my Top Ten in the United States! Interesting older buildings and architecture make up the really dense lower levels, and then there are several awesome towers that come up through the top, all perfectly placed it seems. I hope another "signature" tower, preferably modern, goes up in Philly soon, it would really add a whole new dimension to the skyline. 9/10 during the day, 9.5/10 at night. Gotta love that zig-zag lighting!

Philly has few building above 500 feet, but the ones it does have are real tall, well designed, and nicely clustered. The city has a simple symetry with one central peak, and that is appealing. Philly has a lot of older buildings that aren't prominent in the skline pictures, but make for a really great experience in person. One of the few cities that looks good in picutes AND in person. 9/10

Despite it's troubles, Philadelphia has managed to create one of the ultimate skylines in the past 15 years... it's amazing that only a couple decades ago, Philly's skyline was a very short and ugly skyline... dominated by the city hall building (which is awesome)... since breaking the height rule, the city has churned out some of the best skysrapers of the past 15 years... the Liberty Buildings and the Mellon Building are all po-mo masterpieces... this city has such great height

Not bad for a suburb of New York!

Seriously though, the fact that Philly can build a skyline to rival to NYC when its only 90-odd miles to the south deserves credit. I give it 9/10

My brother lives right in the downtown and we can look up and see the tower just blur into the fog. Philadelphia is nothing short of amazing. 10~

Philadelphia is a great city with a great skyline, it needs to have one supertall that sticks out....one liberty place is nice, but there needs to be one big one that sticks high above them all

8/10
