Thank god it's not white. We have enou8gh white in our skyline. We could actually use a lot more black towers to get some contrast going.

@randallTT
Edmonton's river and river valley are impressive.

Almost unrecognizable. Jealous.

Maybe it's the concrete highway in the foreground, but Montreal looks really American from that angle. PoMo corporate towers, prewar skyscrapers and a giant ass steel bridge.

The MTL skyline from the west is very Canadian, though. 60s apartment towers and glass condos.

I think that Montreal has the most american-looking skyline of the big 3. It may change if new condo towers appear east of Place-Ville-Marie.

Montreal does have an American aspect. I was recently re-watching the intro to the Sopranos, which I believe is a drive from the Lincoln Tunnel through Jersey City and Newark into the Newark exurbs, and I got a little homesick.
