remember what we're grading

I know New Orleans's skyline isn't that great, but lets remeber that we're only grading tall buildings here, not buildings in general. New Orleans probably has some of the best architecture in the United States when you grade homes, museums, lowrise buildings, etc. Its a shame its taller buildings do not match the class of its smaller structures...which you can't see from a freeway or on a "postcard" shot of a city.

7.5 (I gave them two extra bonus points for the historical structures).

When i think of New orleans...i think nasty. But then agian...im sure when people think of arkansas they think the same, so thats just the stereotypical veiw i have...sad i know. Anyways, i think the skyline proper is bad. It looks like if you take a picture today it will be confussed for a pic of NO back in like the 70's. But, they do have pretty good height. But, the real thing that captures my attention about NO is the density. You just dont find density like that in the southern US. So that gives it BIG props for me. 8/10

Unusual

It's unusual for a city of its size to have not one single good building over 20 storeys. This is a very ugly skyline. The "city" itself is a different item...the skyline is a dud.

Seems to suffer the same problem as many US cities, ie lots of tall ones from the 60's/70's, and nothing noticeable since. I don't think it's really that bad, especially considering it's size, 6.5/10
Cheers

Fairly large, some dencent buildings. The tallest is a joke.

Alot of those pics arent very good, and New Orleans has alot of talls, I find it funny it is at 315 when cities 10 times crappier and smaller and even 3rd world cities are in the top 100....this list is kinda whack.

Looks way better in person and up close. The view from the GNO Bridge as you drive into the city is fantastic and from the Huey P Long Bridge there's a good distant view as well. There's older buildings mixed in, also the gigantic and world famous Superdome proudly sits downtown adding to the diversity of the CDB. The Plaza Tower is also an interesting design at 42 stories but it's not always captured properly in many downtown shots, so to attempt to capture as many buildings in one picture at a time makes them all seem shorter. While its skyline isn't sleek or glassy like Houston's or Atlanta's there's no place on earth quite like New Orleans.

Simply put, New Orleans isn't a skyscraper city. It's an historic city known for its grand mansions and historic districts. Who cares about skyscrapers when there's the French Quarter, the Warehouse District, and the Garden District? Who cares about skyscrapers when there are cemeteries of such aching beauty they'd put even those of Europe to shame? Who cares about skyscrapers when this is a city more known for the practice of magic?

I go to N.O. quite often, and the skyline is much more impressive in person. The city has a very busy downtown with much to do... 8/10. Big Easy baby!

New Orleans has a great skyline. Its metropolitan area is a little over 1,300,000 people. The best view for the skyline would definately have to be on I-10 coming from Baton Rouge. The pictures above dont give it justice because it is definately pretty dense.
