Minneapolis is probably my second favorite Midwestern skyline (after Chicago of course). That tight core of glassy towers, those shades of blue and beige...This skyline gets a 9 from me.

i based my rating on the size of the city proper and the central business district. it is definitely a nice looking city, and i give it a respectable 6.5. it is difficult to perceive depth, dimension, and things of this nature, but i really like some of the pictures that give a good view of symmetry.

What does the size of the city proper have to do with anything? If anything, the fact that Minneapolis has only 385,000 people in the city proper and such an amazing skyline should give it a bonus. Either way, I don't think population is a valid basing of a skyline score. 8/10

It's one of the classier skylines US has to offer. With that said, I think a little more density and height would really make the skyline outstanding. It has some pretty nice glass towers, but I would love a little more variety in the designs as well
