Vancouver does have a nice skyline but most of the buildings really are ugly residential towers IMO. When you look at a chunk of buildings you can see all the open and closed curtains and blinds which really make it an eyesore.

That's funny, I've always been impressed by Vancouver's natural surroundings as well as its concentration of high-rises, but I always thought its skyline and the buildings themselves (with a few exceptions) were damn hideous.
