8/10

Milwaukees strenght is not its skyline. Its beauty and good points come from its great river front, lake shore, and festivals.

If people from Milwaukee want a great skyline they just have to drive an hour south to Chicago. Otherwsie they have a great mid-size city that offers plenty. I kind of like the fact that they didn't feel the need to try to build a mini-Chicago skyline. An effort that would have been futile and pointless. Instead they made one of the better lowrise and mid-rise downtowns in the mid-west IMO.

I totally agree. Why should I care about our skyline when I can see one thats in the top 3 in the world--in around an hour and a half?

Ours isnt that bad. Its better than most people think it is. I would say its more attractive than many other bigger skylines--made up of ugly, plain towers. Milwaukee just has all of its tall buildings spread so far apart.

I would have thought Milwaukee would have a much more developed skyline. A few of the buildings are really beautiful though

5.5
