Here's 2 just for the moment........

This is the skyline seen from a few miles away, from the northwest looking toward the southeast. If you squint really hard you can see the high-rise district (one of 5 in the metro) around the airport. The backdrop is the Manzano Mountains, which form the eastern boundary of the southern suburbs. The huge Sandias are not visible from this angle.




This here is a very limited view of a couple scrapers downtown, including the tallest building in New Mexico. The vast majority of the high-rises downtown cant be seen, but here in this photo are (from left to right)-

The Gold Building, Simms Building, Bank Lofts, The La Posada Hotel, the Acropolis, the BOA @ Albuquerque Plaza, and the Grand Hyatt @ Albuquerque Plaza.

In the foreground is the mixed-use development Fourth Street Galleria, which makes no sense cause its on Second Street. It has a shopping mall in the bottom, with office on the top 3 floors. The view is from the area just south of the Convention Center, looking SW.

^^Go to phx, then go to albuquerque, you'll see what I mean. BTW I may live in phx, but I am not from phoenix, there's a big difference. Albuquerque has nothing but blocks of barrios, ghettos, and a few nice sprawling suburbs in the northeastern areas. Other than that, it is just a cancerous eye-sore in a naturally stunning region.
