Minneapolis may be your third favorite US skyline, but they are talking about number of buildings. In that, Houston comes third behind NYC and Chi.

^After New York and Chicago theres a distinct dropoff to #3. Houston is not a clear #3, it depends on what you are talking about. Houston is probably the next tallest average, but SF is much denser and has way more buildings over 15 stories than H-town, just not quite as tall. Miami is right in there as well, and may be 3rd tallest average right now, easily if you count Miami Beach....but theres a lot of good skylines out there of which Minneapolis is definitely one.

Hey guys..thanks for the replys. But let's stop with the comparisons. This thread was intended for people to look at and enjoy some Incredible photos of Houston. Please comment about the pictures and not about personal size issues. Thanks

Not sure if it matters that there is a distinct drop off at three, because Houston still sits there.

Keep the pictures coming...

I'd agree on your comment, LA, Houston, and even Dallas are similar with spread out multiple skylines....

Dallas' skylines look nothing like Houston's or LA's. The landscape (take out the mountains), is what makes Houston and LA similar.

ugh...I can't believe i'm taking the bate. but, here's L.A. and Houston side by side. Now, after this let's stop it with the comparisons.



they both look good IMO. None better than the other.

Wow, now that puts it in perspective. Desktop material there.

That is really cool though......

Sweet!

The one of LA though is taken from an angle that makes it appear dense. A better & denser view of Houston for comparison sake would have been a shot viewed from the east like this one.
