Your Favorite Massachusetts Skylines Excluding Boston

Massachusetts has a surprising number of cities with skylines for a state its size. Obviously, Boston is larger than the rest and more well-known, so it's not an option in this poll.

Cambridge: Pop. 119,000, Metro pop. 4,629,000 (part of the Boston metropolitan area)

Springfield because it has the tallest skyscrapers.

Cambridge because it's the biggest and densest, and it may even eventually have the tallest skyscraper in Massachusetts outside of Boston.

The picture I have up there is the best I could find, but it doesn't show the whole skyline from the best angle.

This would have been a more useful thread if it extended to all of New England. Massachusetts doesn't really have good skylines outside Boston. Cambridge essentially IS Boston so it's hard to count that separately. Springfield has 2 semi-tall buildings but the deadest downtown imaginable. Worcester is underwhelming. Most of the rest have decent urban forms but barely any skylines.

However, from a New England standpoint Hartford is easily the #2, Providence the #3, then probably Stamford and New Haven battling it out for 4/5. I guess Springfield would be 6 (again, lumping Cambridge and the surrounding inner suburbs into Boston). Worcester and Manchester are battling for 7/8. Portland is #9 even though it has arguably the 3rd best overall urban center behind Boston and Providence. It just doesn't have the tall buildings to back it up, but gets points because the tallest it does have are at the top of the hill. Bridgeport is 10. Then let's say Lowell at 11, New Bedford 12, Waterbury 13, and after that I give up.

I had been thinking about including all of New England, since I liked the idea of Manchester competing against Worcester and Springfield.
