Id like to see which city will rise above now that Atlanta is excluded. We all know it has been a house favorite in the last poll. This poll has been inspired by Spartan :thumbsup:

Reminder: This is favorite capital cities.

Little Rock or Richmond. Both great!

Columbia, with nods to Richmond, Little Rock, Austin, Nashville, and OKC.

Little Rock, for its size vs. population. To refresh your memory:

Great photos! Whats the name of the tallest tower? When I used to go to Little Rock often several years ago, it was the TCBY tower, but looks like a different sign on it now.

It's now the Metropolitan Bank Tower.

I think the colors on the new tower look nicer than before:

Columbia's for the color, balance, texture and charm. There's a building in Nashville that bothers me because it looks like a stingray or something.

I really like Nashville's skyline from the south...because SoBro is lower in elevation, it makes the buildings look taller...

Oh, I forgot, besides that I like Little Rock's skyline. Very nice for a city of its size! Good looking buildings (both tall and small) as well.

OKC is my favorite... And I have reasons other than hometown bias. The density and variety in height and shape are really nice I think. Sometimes I think you have to be a pedestrian in downtown OKC to truly realize the beauty of the skyline- from many angles you can't get a view of the whole skyline because the density is so high.

^I much prefer the "backside" angle of Nashville's skyline; as with many other cities, the typical angle hides some great density.

IDK, Little Rock and OKC have some height but there are only a few buildings there.

Richmond (boxy as it is) has some body, so does Nashville.

Yet for some unknown reason I have a feeling in my gut that Columbia will somehow win this one... lol

Anyone have pics of Tallahassee?

Columbia's buildings are nice looking...but pretty spread out. Both Nashville and Richmond have several blocks of pretty decently sized buildings close together.

I agree, here's Richmond's skyline. It has a nice dense urban core.

My vote goes for Richmond. Its pretty dense and it stretches out rather wide. If anyone that has seen the skyline from I-95 North coming from the Southside knows what I'm talking about. I give Nashville #2 and Columbia/Little Rock are tied for #3.

If you go by size, then including the West End skyline of Nashville with the CBD...it wins in my opinion (but I am a homer LOL!). We are talking about three or four miles of straight buildings and rooflines.

See what I mean. BTW, the dip in the "rooflines" toward the middle of the pic is actually a valley, so some builidngs are obscured a bit by the tree line and the small ridge behind them. This pic looks from the north to south, I-65/24 is on the far left and I-440 is on the far right. This is the ENTIRE skyline of Nashville that is visible to some in places around the north side.
