Your Favorite City Skyline?

 
 
Reply Thu 4 Oct, 2018 08:43 am
Which city has your favorite skyline? Does it hold the same allure during the daytime as the nighttime skyline?


Mine? Maybe a bit shocking... a bit surprising to you, and very likely spiced with a megaton of sentimentality...


...



...

is the Pittsburgh skyline taken from the converging of the three rivers:
Ohio River, Monongahela River, and the Allegheny River.

@tsarstepan,
Never really pondered this, but upon first impulse... I think I like the skyline of this city most.

I might like the look of it by night even more... I've always been a sucker for mountain ranges under a clear, starlit night.

Florence has to be the most beautiful city I've ever visited.

I've always loved Toronto's skyline:

And Chicago's as well

But I am a sucker for waterfront cities. Both are at their best at sunrise/sunset.

@Padman01,
I wonder... can a city have a true skyline if not being situated near a body of water?

@tsarstepan,
Pittsburgh - not entirely shocking - I had been there maybe about 4 years ago when my daughter was considering a college in the area. I also thought that area looked surprisingly beautiful. Now overall Pittsburgh is not the most beautiful city - but from the perspective of those rivers converging it is very pretty. And that area around the sports parks - has been developed very nicely.

I suppose the answer to be yes.
Mountains can help create a skyline.

@tsarstepan,
Interesting question. I think there does need to be something like water, mountains, or even an escarpment to really make the skyline standout.
