My Reply: Hi Steve, Los Angeles was not ignored. Although I must admit it is a pleasant aesthetic skyline, Los Angeles does not quite meet the criteria to make the list. Global representation is one reason, as US cities are already well represented on the list. LA in terms of building height can't even compete with the likes Houston... LA has not built a skyscraper is over 15 and to top it all off, LA is a model of and urban planning disaster in terms of urban sprawl, pollution levels, planning & urban design. Hope this make sense.
