New England overall is picturesque.
To provide another example, Providence has a larger population, but still falls under 200,000.

This is a great thread. I'm finding a lot of unique buildings in cities I've never heard of. You don't know what you don't know!

Balneário Camboriú might be the winner for me - I've noticed that the towns/cities that are tourist or seasonal destinations definitely have the upper hand in high-rises. There are of course other factors too, zoning, cost, topography, politics, etc. Nevertheless, in these smaller-sized cities it becomes very evident.

Here are a couple other small cities I've not seen posted here yet. Maybe not the best but definitely interesting in their own rights


Duluth, Minnesota, USA

Mobile, Alabama has a great skyline for its size, and has the tallest building in the state.

Er, not exactly a great skyline, but it's still nice.

Enjoyed looking through all the skylines on here! For resort cities, I'd go with Balneario, Brazil. For very small, I think Yellowknife is quite impressive.
I think Rochester, MN is right up there for small cities.
Pop (2015): 112,000
Metro (2015): 214,000

Current Tallest Buildings: 342', 305', 298', 295', 292'

Planned/Proposed Buildings: 30 stories(455') (10 story expansion of current building)
24 story and 23 story towers part of $200m development
23 story tower (277') part of $140m development
19 story tower (290') (17 story expansion of current building)
16 story tower
13 story tower part of $110m development

Rosario has, indeed, a very beautiful skyline. Nevertheless, it doesn´t fit in this thread, since it has around 1 million inhabitants. Anyway, it´s always a pleasure seeing pictures of Rosario

I say Benidorm. Not a very beatiful city, and most of the skyscrapers are not beautiful to look at alone but it is very clean (not dirty at all as someone said, have been there!) and the skyline looks amazing with the sea and mountain backdrop!
