I love Pittsburgh. It is such an underrated city. There are some really solid bones there. I have seen a similar picture, but I think it was a Gigapan.

Love the Charlotte and Philadelphia pictures! Charlotte seems to be underrepresented when discussing skylines.

Here is a pic I took of Vancouver a few years ago from a seldom seen angle:

Wow. That has to be the most impressive view of Jersey City I think I've ever seen. It usually piggyback's on New York's skyline, so it's nice to see "mostly" only Jersey City there. I realize you can still see part of New York to the left.

Unlike most Chicago skyline pictures which just show downtown, this one actually shows the long line (skyline) of buildings along the lake.

Damn that Montreal shot is bangin! Best shot and angle I can remember seeing of it, I actually didn't know what city that was at first. Very impressive and they are undergoing a condo boom right now so it should get even better.

Loving the lowrise chunkiness of STL :haha: I might have to try that out as a pickup line "hey sugar, I dig your lowrise chunkiness" :drooling:

Wooster Oct 7, 2012 8:55 PM

I'll go with this fairly quintessential shot of Calgary - population 1.2 million. No Calgary Tower, but a bit of the Calatrava bridge popping out. I had a hard time deciding between this an another recent one from the south with a crazy lightning strike. Nudge, nudge to my fellow Calgary forumers. ;)

Philly has a great skyline. It was extremely impressive seeing it for the first time driving in from the North - particularly now with Comcast, which is a very attractive building and has a commanding presence.

Where did you drive in? Along I-95 or I-76?

Yeah, definitely a good entrance into the city going both North and South on 76

I agree. I really hope we start seeing some high-rise residential, office, and/or mixed-use towers built on downtown's west (Target Field area) and east (Metrodome / new Vikings stadium) ends.

Any idea as to the Magellan tower slated for the Loring Park area of downtown?

That Minneapolis shot is extremely impressive looks very similar in size, height, lowrise chunkiness to LA actually.

Toronto, good lord we are really starting to see how that boom is playing out.

This is fantastic, and to think that it only shows half the skyline - everything North of College St. to Bloor/Yorkville is missing.

I tried to find one that properly incorporated the mountains with downtown. They practically surround the city.

AviationGuy Oct 10, 2012 10:52 PM

Chattanooga has such a beautiful setting. Would love to visit sometime.

Good thread. It's always nice to see a new round of skyline pics. Whoo!

Note the mysterious garbage island in the foreground, the only place in the whole of Japan I know of that has no actual address of any kind (or at least no address that is available to the public).
