Here are pictures of my city Hamilton. A regular city it is located in Ontario Canada with a population of 504,500 and a metro population of 689,700. What is unique to this city is that it is located in a valley and links onto the Niagara escarpment, this makes for a terrific view of the downtown core when on the mountain. There's not alot of density of really tall skyscrapers but the city does have a few highrises. Hamilton is known for it's historical buildings and a spectacular view especially at night. Check out the photo links (sorry some of them are not very big):

Take a look at all the night photos here:

If you like to see even more photos/and information go here:

So what does everyone think? Overall I would rate it a 8/10 just because I really like the view from the mountain. :)

I agree the setting is great. A skyline needs a decent vantage point and this city has one. Overall though it's lacking in both quality and quantity of higrises. 6/10

7/10 for me, but I believe that Hamilton was already done as a thread in the skylines forum, not meaning to put a damper. I remember coming across it. :)
You'll certainly getting stunning views of Hamilton's skyline in a LOT of areas on the mountain/escarpment, which not too many cities can offer.

Hi Victoria! It's great to have another Hamiltonian here. I'm from Hamilton too.

I recommend you check out the Ontario section in Canada. There are a couple of pictures of Hamilton.

Here are photos I took from Hamilton West Harbour http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=143897
