Skylines Rankings, World & U.S.

Skylines can be ranked in many ways. Beauty, number of buildings above a certain height, etc, number of super talls, etc.

In the U.S. I would rank the top 15 (based on numbers & height, not beauty necessarily):

1. NYC
2. Chicago
3-6. Houston, L.A., S.F, Miami tied
7. Dallas
8. Philadelphia
9. Atlanta
10. Seattle
11. Boston
12. Minneapolis
13. Las Vegas
14. Pittsburgh
15. Denver

In the world, of course Dubai, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Beijing, Seoul, Tokyo, London, Moscow, Kuala Lampor, Sydney, Melbourne, Toronto etc. would be in the rankings. Did I leave any off the list? Love to see other opinions, including beauty ranks. Beautiful & tall are not the same. Vancouver and San Diego, for example, are beautiful skylines but are not all that tall.
