I was surprised by how pretty Buffalos was. But I will still go with Miami.

They all seem to lose magic during the day. I think Buffalo lost the most and Miami clearly kept the most.

I think it's New York. NY, Boston, and Miami are far superior to Buffalo.

I agree. Buffalo is so old style. If you made those old buildings look more modern day with glass - it might have a kick to it.

But I'd put Buffalo over Boston.

NY, Miami, Buffalo, Boston

I've never been to Boston but i have been to Miami, NY and Buffalo.

I personally think the New York skyline is the best so my order would be:

NY
Mia
Bos
Buf

I think the biggest complain that people in Buffalo have is that nothing is done with the waterfront. Though Buffalo is not even close to being the major markets Miami, Boston, and NY are.

Its being done now. The waterfront is getting a make over. These are the designs for the condos going in on the waterfront.

And this is it being built right now.

Plus these buildings are being added to the skyline.

And this is the Casino being built, although the gov has not allowed the Seneca's a license to gamble on this site, hopefully they will, but the Hotel/Casino is still being built.

Now all we need to do is build a downtown stadium.

AdamDrizzy

yeah i saw all the construction downtown. Now all we need is a that god dang stadium downtown and main street to be insane like it used to be with restaurants and stuff.

Did you see the freezer queen cruise ship motel they are building on the waterfront of buffalo?

so cool looking

and what the heck is that big thing next to the condos? HSBC arena or that new bass pro waterfront thing?

I saw some of the construction on Elmwood and saw that the statler hotel I think it's called being renovated and reopened. I think if the Bills stay in Buffalo a new stadium will be needed. Putting it on the waterfront would be the logical thing to do.

I think the Statler has a cool design but its ugly as hell lol

I wish the Buffalo city tower was going to be built... that thing is a monster. I doubt it will be built. At least I can go gamble my life away next year :) haha

All of the skylines look pretty cool. I've been in love with the city of Miami forever though so that'll always be my first choice.

What the hell is going on in the left side of the night time Buffalo pic? There is lightning and what almost looks like Niagra falls??

In the original post it's hard to compare skylines when a photo is just better than one you are comparing it to...

The photo of the Buffalo skyline just looks better than the others, doesn't mean the skyline is nicer, just a better photo.

The Miami photo is very nice too....Judging by the photos I like Buf, Mia, Bos, NY

We had a lightning storm last week and someone did a quick shot to capture it

Niagara Falls is behind the photographer

This is not even a debate, NYC(even w/o the WTC) still has the most bwautiful skyline in the World.

Then I guess the Bills shouldn't have Buffalo since they play in orchard Park(which is farther away from Buf than East Rutherford is from NYC) and the Pats shouldn't get Boston since they play in Foxboro?

No one actually has a stadium downtown.

While we are talking about skylines, the absolute most gorgeous one Ive seen has to be Cincinnati's. Mostly because they have all their stadiums downtown. From pics, I would say Seattle has the best in the NFL, but from ones I have seen, Cinci's is #1. Something about downtown stadiums that gets to me.

Seattle is disgusting...the buildings are so run down its nasty but Seattle is big.

Jacobs Field or whatever it's called now is basically across the street from a cemetary. Though depending upon the area of the city it's either a dump or can be really nice. The only city that I really thought was a dump was LA.
