I don't think these pictures here quite do the St. Paul skyline justice. No offence, but I think something is needed from the bluffs, or coming in on 94W. In terms of showcasing the skyline, I think those angles could do a better job.

It's not a skyline shot, but I love this aerial of St. Paul:

9 -- exquisite density with lots of historic buildings, in a nice setting. A very pleasing skyline over all.

Beautiful city

I live in Minneapolis, and I love Mpls. But think St. Paul is an absolutely beautiful city. Having said that, as skylines go, I don't think St. Paul's is particularly impressive. I gave it an 8. But the experience on the street is very different. It is very compact, with narrow streets, and narrow sidewalks. Most of the buildings come right up to the sidewalk, and when you reach a park, you almost don't see it coming until you turn the corner. This gives it a very urban , and somewhat European feel. Aside from downtown and the capital, there are many other parts of the city I love to visit, including Grand Ave., Summit Ave, the river gorge, and Swede Hollow. No to mention Como Ave and St. Anthony Park.

Very dense, and looks historic. Apart from the first pic which appears to be a cluster of ugly concrete buildings, it isn't bad at all.
7.5/10

Few downtowns' have affected me in the way this one has. St. Paul has one of the most "European looking" central core's in the nation. If you ever get the time, or have the chance to visit it, you will see what I mean. Truly, truly outstanding.

One of the most underappreciated skylines in North America, it also makes the perfect companion to Minneapolis' larger skyline. There are some key buildings in this city, which give it a great deal of identity. I give it a 7.5/10.

It has a curious brown color, but I like this downtown! I'm really impressed! One of the most beauty cities I have ever seen at "Rate our skylines".

Perhaps those building will not win any design contest, but they are very nice and the conbination of all of them makes downtown St. Paul a very good place to live and work (I think).
Look the parks, monuments, downtown nice streets... Very nice.

At ArchMadness first image, I can see an skyline at the superior part of the photograph. What city is this?

"9,5/10" for this an unknown (for me) city.

Xabi, that is Minneapolis. Together, Minneapolis and St. Paul are "Twin Cities."

Nice looking at night from the picture, but day picture reveals the ugly old buildings.
