It currently ranks #25 in the world (on SSC). Higher than LA. I don't think it's underrated.

Higher than LA? Ridiculous. By whose standards?

That list has it lower than Los Angeles, not higher.

I just checked it again and Minneapolis isn't ranked higher than Los Angeles like 'Major Deegan' contends. That poll has Los Angeles with 84 votes or 6.52% of the votes and Minneapolis with 45 votes or 3.4% of the votes.

I have a clear methodology, which takes in account ALL votes, not just your or Jay's personal preference. It's all been explained many times over in that thread. Go look again. There is even a link there with the detailed calcs. LA wasn't even in TOP 25 in 2010. I'm pretty sure it ranks even lower today. Don't agree? You are welcome to propose a different method of ranking!

We're well aware of that, but your poll has LA (84) with more votes than Minny (45).

When he says the ranking is weighted, I think he means the results show the combination of votes in that poll as well as the votes in the individual skyline threads. In other words, even though LA has more votes in that poll, it has a lower ranking since it did much more poorly in its own thread than Minny did in its thread.

I see. Regardless, I don't think one can conclude anything concrete from any of these polls. General perceptions by SSCers is the best one can do.

Minneapolis Skyline From the Amber Room

Looking southeast from the Guthrie Theater. The glass tint give photographs that "From 50 years ago" look, which I'm guessing isn't accidental.
