You should the beaches of the Harbour and the Arm. Instead of lines of dead seaweed there are piles of garbage. It's gross if you tip while sailing.

For a city as old as Halifax i'd expect it to have a lot larger of a built up downtown than that, it looks like a half-ass suburban downtown with a few office parks. Is it that people in Halifax don't want development in their downtown or is it that the economy is stagnant there

7.5/10. The height restrictions are a shame.

Good skyline for a city its size, especially a city that was blown to bits in the early 1900's!

A relatively good skyline with some nice buildings. I give it a 6/10.

I gave Halifax a 9/10 for such an incredible skyline for a small city.

For a city of 370 000, I would've given it a rating of 7 or 7.5, but I'm giving a 9 for the de-amalgated city of Halifax, which has a population 115 000. Does Dartmouth have a skyline? There's a few low-rise buildings, I'm sure, but I couldn't find any pics on Dartmouth.

It's like Quebec having a great skyline for a city of 130 000 before amalgating to become a city of 510 000.

Skyline wise (for Halifax), it needs a bit more height for it to be anything over outstanding, but add it with superb background, and it's good enough for me.
