Richmond - USA

Richmond

Population: 200,123 (Metro: 1,212,977)

Richmond is the capital of the Commonwealth of Virginia, in the United States. Like all Virginia municipalities incorporated as cities, it is an independent city and not part of any county. Richmond is the center of the Richmond Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA) and the Greater Richmond area. Surrounded by Henrico and Chesterfield counties, the city is located at the intersections of Interstate 95 and Interstate 64, and surrounded by Interstate 295 and Virginia State Route 288 in central Virginia. The population was 200,123 in 2007, with an estimated population of 1,212,977 for the Richmond Metropolitan Area — making it the third largest in Virginia.

I dont know. I look at the city and its blah! But, its in the south. And also when i look at it ...it looks pretty dense. So thats a BIG plus for me. I mean, skyline,7, but im sure it would be awesome at ground level. so over all...8

Richmond's skyline is unique compaired to most US cities, because it's very modest looking. I notice most of the scrapers are squared off and seem to keep a uniformed look. It's a beautiful skyline on its own.
