in terms of size, the #1 and #2 skylines in the US are extremely clear-cut.

#3 becomes a much more muddled affair.
I love this about the US, NY and Chi are beasts on a world stage but there are a handful of cities that all compete for third (i.e. a lot of other great skylines). Miami wins 500+ but lacks the height that some other cities have. Hopefully that changes soon.

though if we open up the competition to our canadian friends to the north, then toronto is now solidly in the #3 spot, and quickly gaining on chicago.
Toronto is definitely getting there but still well behind Chicago in a lot of categories. It's a solid #3 in North America though and maybe #4 outside of Asia since Moscow is picking up steam. Australia will surprise too.

Seattle’s skyline looks really nice, but compared to San Francisco’s & Miami’s skyline. Seattle looks very small in comparison.
