8/10. Philly's skyline isn't huge, but it looks so nice. I love those two taller green-colored buildings so much. The city also has so much historic architecture.

One of the American heavy hitters. I love the blend of old and new and in fact I think I appreciate a city that can blend the two masterfully more than I appreciate a city that only has one or the other. I give Philadelphia a 9.

The skyline will be even better since the cira center is almost finished. We're also getting the 975' Comcast building which will be finished in 2007!!!!

Cruces1: do you know when that picture's from? They're showing it as a different model now..

And ok, hold on. I just looked through all of these posts, and everyone seems to like Philly. So I'd like to hear from someone who voted for 3 of less. Seriously, why? You obviously didn't vote 3 or less based on the skyline. 3 is pretty bad. So, why the hate for Philly? Did it do you wrong? Hatin' just casue? 49 people and not one reason. Come on, out with it.

As the mayor of this fine city, I would like to invite all of you who voted 3 or lower for a little private tour of this city.
