How dare you show a picture of Bartlesville without the Frank Lloyd Wright tower.

Here's a good one from plinko923 on Photobucket:

Bartlesville, OK Population: 34,000

Anderson, IN has a population of 56,000 and a larger "skyline" than some bigger cities in Indiana. It's difficult to find pics online, though.

The problem is that Fort Wayne can in no way be described as small, let along amongst the smallest cities with measurable skylines. If Fort Wayne is small, I could add every city in Michigan save Detroit.

You're right. I didn't realize how large the population was ... maybe it has a poor skyline then, considering how many people live there.

I just looked up Dayton for comparison and it has almost 86k less than Ft. Wayne (obviously, the city has lost a LOT of people due to lost jobs) ... but it's not a bad comparison.

Dayton ALSO has more than a half million more in the METRO than Fort Wayne. No one should care about city size. I think for 550,000ish people, Fort Wayne doesn't have a bad skyline at all for it's size.

Bartlesville is probably the #1 posterchild for small towns with a great skyline, but Oklahoma isn't really Midwestern so I wouldn't really include it here..

I wish that Indy had one of those small "Empire State" type towers. Ft. Wayne does, as well as many cities. Those small 200-300 foot towers are nice. I know that the height limit was on in Indy, but still wonder what held a type of design like this up?
