8.5/10 for the skyline
9.5/10 for the city

I don't care much for the boxy skyline but from certain angles and at night it can be rather impressive. Richmond's glory isn't its skyline so much as it is the city's density, neighborhoods, and individual architectural masterpieces. For example, The Fan District and Church Hill are elegant in-town residential neighborhoods and Windsor Farms in the city's West End is the most beautiful residential neighborhood I've ever visited. Monument Avenue is a masterpiece and so is the Gothic old City Hall, the Beaux-Arts Jefferson Hotel, the old train stations and of course the state Capitol designed by Thomas Jefferson.

And no city in the country can match the drama of Richmond's history during the Civil War--especially the evacuation of the city by the Confederate government (April 3, 1865--150-years ago this month). The ensuing destruction of the city by fire and the panic of many thousands who couldn't escape was a tragedy of epic proportions. Some buildings remain from that terrible day including the Capitol, St. Paul's Church and the old Post Office.

So when I visit Richmond, these are the things that impress me the most--not the city's skyline.
