I dont agree with your statement. Santiago de Chile has not a waterfront, but anyway it presents a definied skyline.

TIENES TODA LA RAZON LA TOPOGRAFIA DE CARACAS HACE DIFICIL SACAR UNA PANORAMIRA COMPLETA DE LA CIUDAD POR EJEMPLO EXISTEN 3 NUCLEOS URBANO EL CENTRO ANTIGUO, PLAZA VENEZUELA-SABANA GRANDE Y CHACAO ALTAMIRA. AQUI SON MAS DE 15KM DE EDIFICIOS CONTINUOS PERO POR CONDICIONES ANTES MENCIONADAS LAS FOTO MUESTRAN ES SOLO SECTORES DE LA CIUDAD.

YOU FORGOT NASSAU, IT WAS A TEST DIMWITS!

Why do people are so lame with geography?? Geesh!

And oh yes including Mexico City would completely make the poll balanced, perfectly representing North America's best candidates skyline-wise! You're very intelligent! Thank you!

Now the real one only for those in the know:


Idea for another thread:

BEST SKYLINES IN NORTH AMERICA

with four poll options:

1 - OTTAWA
2 - WASHINGTON D.C.
3 - MEXICO CITY
4 - NASSAU






What do you think? What other cities could possibly be included in this poll, none, right? It's perfectly fair and balanced to include political capitals only, dontcha think?

Everyone knows the poll is nonsense...
But if you care so much, why don't you PM a mod asking them to delete the existing poll and create a new one?

North America is different. Let's say more than the 90% of the capitals of the South American countries are the biggest cities in each of those, except Brazil. If you do a poll about capitals, Brasilia of course should be there. But, I think you want to make a poll about the best skyline in the biggest cities of SA. But if you do that, most of the cities would be from Brasil, as there is a lot of population there. I think that what you reclaim is so not fair...

I love Palermo. But, the only issue, is that when rains, it floods easily. I think they are working on a great project to avoid this, with a new subterranean drainage.
