10/10.
Providence is one of my favorite skylines, maybe beacuse I live near there and go there so much. That site on the side of I-95 between the Westin Hotel and the State House has been replaced by a large beautiful mall.
Some pics:
The Mall

looks like a nice charming New England city, BUT, for a metro population of between 1.2 million and 1.6 million (depending on what criteria you use), it's skyline is very weak.

I give the skyline a 3.5

6.5

For a small city, lucky that all the taller ones are clustered together very well to create a feeling of density. Has a nice profile with the differing style of buildings. But individually, they seem old and not too imaginitive. Needs more!

Providence has become such a cool city. The skyline is OK. It's stunted because Providence is so close to Boston. Although it's not officially part of the Boston metro, it is part of the metro for all intents and purposes. The city at street level is great in some areas. The built up area is quite large with a nice size dowtown with many architecturally interesting buildings. Providence is easily the second most vibrant city in new england after boston.
