Hamhŭng (Hamhŭng-si) is North Korea's second largest city, and the capital of South Hamgyŏng Province. In late 2005, nearby Hŭngnam was made a ward (kuyŏk) within Hamhŭng-si(wiki)

This is city that is in the "Rate Our Skyline" section of SSC, so I'll rate the skyline a 2/10 but for city life such as the street pictures you posted, I'll rate it a 6/10 since North Korea does look interesting.

2/10 for Skyline.

This is one of the few skylines that truly deserve "less than 3". I mean, seriously, I don't see even a single structure which can be defined as a skyscraper there.

Preserved historical town ... Check

One of the best theaters in the world ... Check

Good examples of revival architecture ... Check

Commieblocks ... No thanks!

But, considering that the best skyline in the world - Hong Kong - is jam-packed with commieblocks, that's hardly gonna keep me from giving the city a 10.

I suppose Washington also deserves less than 3? ;)

No because it has buildings with architecture, not 100,000 buildings which look EXACTLY the same but have different heights and colors.
See #40371318. Washington? Like Hamhung, it has many attractions, but it also has lots of poverty and slums. Anyway, your original point was about height.
