They may look cool, but try driving on them! You're in for quite a ride!

This is the capital city of my state, and the closest major city to where I live. I think it has a very nice charm, and being on the water, it is a beautiful city and well kept secret. I give it a 7/10. It is a very nice place even if its skyline is nowhere as large as those of larger cities.

Drove through Prov in late summer 2003. It seemed like a nice town and wished we spend more time there. I remember downtown was pretty cramped, which was surprising since it's not a large city. They say Providence is going through a renaissance, playing up to the advantage of the riverfront. I hope to visit sometime soon. As for ratings, sorry NE I can only give it a 4 due to the lack of tall buildings and more low density encirling the CBD. I really wish I could give this town a higher ratings. The TV show really gave it RI a boost. I think it will only get better.

For a city that small, it's nice to see a few tall buildings, but in the grand scheme of skylines, it's marginal at best: 3.5/10.

A pleasing skyline. A handful of towers rising out of a densely packed historic core. I like it! An 8.

Providence is the closest big city to me and i love the city it's skylie is kina weak for a 1.5 metro but other then that its a very nice city and very much on an upswing.

7.5 just because its skyline isn't as big as it could and should be.

I rate it a 7. It's pretty damn good for a small city in the smallest state in the country. But it's not very tall. But it does look pretty at night.

Hideous!!!! I gave it a 3. The fact that it has water nearby is the only redeeming quality I see. Hideous mix of buildings. I look at this skyline and I picture fat, pasty white, tan starved liberals with incredibly annoying accents stolling through downtown with their noses in the air.

Providence's skyline will look different soon as it continues to grow

As best as I can tell, this is how our height ranking will soon look:

428ft. Bank of America ("Superman") Building
410ft. One Financial Plaza ("Hospital Trust Tower")
400+ft. OneTen Westminster
???ft. Second Westin Tower
329ft. Westin Providence
311ft. Textron Tower
285ft. 50 Kennedy Plaza
235ft. WaterPlace Tower
223ft. The State House
220ft. The Biltmore
216ft. The County Courthouse
213ft. WaterPlace Tower
185ft. First Baptist Church
180ft. Brown Sciences Library
175ft. Dominica Manor Federal Hill

NEW BUILDINGS IN RED

The condos in the Power Block at about 25-27 floors should fall in around somewhere between the 2nd Westin Tower and 50 Kennedy Plaza, 250-300-ish feet.

There's word of some sort of spire being added to the plans for OneTen Westminster, there's an outside chance that it could be taller than the Superman Building (becoming the city's new tallest) depending on how big that spire goes.

In my opinion, the typical american city. In Europe it would be a great skyline.
