You know, the fact that so many non-Americans here are calling this "disappointing" and giving this skyline a low score says a lot.

They think Baton Rouge's skyline should be bigger even though it's a SMALL city.

I think that says a lot of good about American skylines.

Very poor skylines... people there must live on suburbs and, as the american culture abolish residencial high rises, there not much to say about this city. But i think that the quality of life in Baton Rouge must be good.

I have no idea what you're talking about here. Are you saying that THIS city has a poor skyline or ALL of America has poor skylines?
If you're just talking about Baton Rouge - it's a small city. It's one of our smallest that you can even call a city. Less than 300,000 in the city and only about 802,000 in the metro area. It's amazing that it even has the number of highrises it has.
If you're saying America has very poor skylines - ..... you're crazy.

Not EVERYONE in America lives in suburban areas and not every city is so suburban-friendly. Several cities in the States are compact and more urban.

As far as the skyline goes, no there isn't.

No.. i'm not saying that America has poor skylines. In fact, i really like north american cities. I was refering Baton Rouge, singly. And 300.000 inhabitants isn't too small. Brazilian cities, for example, that have 300.000 inhabitants or more, show much more buildings than Baton Rouge (i'm not talking about the quality of them), because here we have the culture that mix comercial and residencial buildings. People like to live in apartment buildings, in the centre, and not in the suburbs.

Is obvious that there are cities in America that have another "way of life". I said that as an "odd sensation" about american cities, generalizing. And for this reason i said that i hadn't much to say (because this american style sounds cliché to me).

And i'm not criticizing the skyline because i don't like suburban cities, with no high buildings, i really like this "spread out style", but as i'm judging JUST the skyline, i had to say that.

Well Brazilian cities typically have mountains and hills. Baton Rouge is as flat as a plate, so there's realy no need or demand to have so many high residential buildings.

Smaller cities in America don't have too many residential high rises.

As for the skyline, it is pretty decent for a city its size. But no more than maybe a 5.5.
