I like the two little sheds in the foreground. I think the skyline is very well proportioned so I'll score the city 9.5/10.

Mil-town I do love you

9 cause there is so much to Milwaukee.

With summerfest, state fair, miller brewery tours, and all the cultural fests aside, Milwaukee still has some great buildings. The Caltrava is breathing taking outside and inside. There should be some more photos of Marquette University and some of the old factory buildings in West Milwaukee and else where. Even though some people don't like them, the Domes too.
I live out in New York now, but my favorite part of milwaukee was driving over the 35th street bridge in the morning. I miss the cheap beer, the world's largest music fest and the Marquette and UW-Mil parties.

Here are a couple new shots I've taken in the past couple days:

Daytime View looking down Propsect Avenue amidst Milwaukee's "second skyline":


The same view, but at night:


And a close-up view of two of Milwaukee's newest talls with one of our oldest (the gas light building) behind:

I love the ill mil. Like some have said already, the skyline is not the best part of milwaukee, theres a lot of other stuff thats great.

For the skyline, being so close to chicago, its gonna get overshadowed. Like many have mentioned, part of the problem is the skyline is so long that the buildings are spaced out too far; stretching from the wells fargo building, like 15 blocks east to the usbank building. (Kind of the opposite problem of the Mils wisconsin brother, madison - skyline is short but dense). The new condo towers on the east side are definitely a good thing, as skyscape and milwaukeemarks pics already show.

I like the architecture of a lot of the existing buildings, especially city hall (even though i never liked the tallest - firststar building). I gave the skyline an 8, maybe out of midwest bias or something. But the skyline is sure to improve.
