Jacksonville - USA

Jacksonville Florida... Never been there, but my step dad has, and he brought me back a collecter coke bottle and a baseball cap!
What do you think of this city?

I love everything about J-ville. My grandparents lived there. Then died recently.

8/10

The skyline is far too little for what the population consists of (largest city in Florida.) Then again, it also is its own county which would explain the giant population. They should put some more buildings up there; or atleast something taller then the modis building.

What is that tower with the giant "MODIS" on the top? I hate that building...

I am not impressed. My biggest beef isn't with the number of buildings, but with the layout instead. There doesn't seem to be much continuity, if you know what I mean...

blah. Kinda modern, but way too small for its MSA, very unbalanced, and very unspectacular. I give it a 5.
