Sleepy Hollow and Tarrytown, NY. An hour outside of the city and the Sleepy Hollow cemetery has the graves of Washington Irving, Andrew Carnegie and William Rockefeller. The cemetery is gorgeous and there's monuments that I've never seen anything of the like anywhere else. Read The Legend of Sleepy Hollow before you go for the full effect. Just get on the Tappan Zee Bridge and head west.

^ I agree with Shtoopid. LMAO at Burbank, CA & Culemborg, Ushuaia, argentina. I'm confused on where the sky line is?? And I would say anything 500k & under is a small city. (and since when did a bridge constitute as a skyline??)

It's funny people posting skyline of cities like Providence and Hartford (very beautiful indeed), suggesting they are small cities. Both are the center of metro areas over 1 million people. Hardly they can be regarded as "small cities".

Resort-towns, like Benidorn or Balneário Camboriú are actually home of millions of people in the summer. I don't think we are talking about "small cities skylines" as well.

And finally, cities part of a bigger metropolitan area, like Glendale, are much more districts than a "real" city.

Londrina, 510,000 people:

Well, it's not that small, but the skyline is quite impressive for its size.

A city with 510,000 residences is definitely not a small city.

What about Providence (1,600,000 people) or Hartford (1,100,000)? Or Balneário Camboriú and Benidorm (both over 1 million in the summer)? Or Glendale, part of a 17 million people metropolis?

Londrina may not be a "small city", but it's a regular mid-size one.

It is. Well it is a subjective term actually. I personally consider cities small which has less than 2M residents.

If we are going only be city populations, Hartford is about 125k and Providence about 175k. Heck, for the person claiming Providence is 1.6 million, keep in mind that the entire STATE of Rhode Island is only about 1,050,000! By including metros, you are also including a fair amount of other "cities" in these metros as well. Where do we draw the line? For the Northeast, I would consider Hartford and Providence to certainly be on the small side.
