Richmonds skyline is very dense but there is one problem, the city seems dead when your walking, you seem like the only one there...maybe the high crime rate has people scared i dont know,...but all in all richmond is a great city 8/10

Half decent for a city its size, yes indeed not too chabby. problems are tho it lacks height, and the city only has around 60 high rises, architecture is old and boring, night shots were nice, still tho not bad for a city that size

5.9/10

A very ugly skyline, only about (exaggerating) 4 buildings ... but at ground level or in person, unlike what many people think, its even worse, it is poor and gray...and there are many stores that are closed, its empty...I would give it a minus 10 but I can't so I give it a 0. Lived there 5 years.Not going back ever again.NOt to be mean, but its very dissapointing.

I personally liked Richmond. Unfortunately, the city has suffered from poor leadership for the past few years. But I do see Richmond rebounding very soon; it already has to a certain extent.

It looks nice and cozy for such a small city, in terms of population of course.

Simple.

For an American Skyline I give it a 3 or less. For a world wide skyline I give it about a 5.

Richmond has one of my favorite Southeast US skylines, and has many beautiful old neighborhoods too. I've never been to its most famed neighborhood--the Fan. I'm overdue for a visit there.

Thanks for all of the excellent pics, JRQ!
