what´s the best view from an airport to the city? of course, an airport thats located in the heart of a city...... for me, Aeroparque Jorge Newbery in Buenos Aires, Logan Airport in Boston, and Ronald Reagan National in DC.

I think Las Vegas is the best. Nothing like being able to look out the window and see that very recognizable skyline, especially at night. Plus you know there is no long schlep to your vacation destination. I imagine if you live their it's a nice reminder to know you are home.

Several other ones I would like to add:

- Toronto City
- Rio de Janeiro SDU !!!!!!!!
- Berlin THF
- Barcelona when landing on what I believe must be Rwy 25
- Washington DCA
- Nice, view of either Nice or the Antibes/Cannes area on approach
- Geneva
- Milano LIN
- Miami to the extent that you fly over the keys and Miami beach when approaching westbound
- Los Angeles LAX is not too bad, at least you get to see the urban sprawl
- Singapore when approaching on Rwys 02L and 02R

LGA is good.

On clear day you can see the Ren Cen and Downtown Detroit from DTW

From the parking garage at MCO I can see Downtown Orlando.

Don't forget about the approach into HOU when landing on 12R.
Great view of the US's most modern skyline, especially on a clear night....

Make sure you sit on the left side ("A" seat) when you fly into HOU...

Actually, even though the city isn't HUGE, the approaches from the West and takeoffs to the West are great from BHM. Also, the airport's fairly close-in and from the parking deck, there's a great view of downtown Birmingham, as well as the valley and development up the sides of Red Mountain....

The view and drive (on I-90) from O'Hare to Chicago is awesome; the skyline is not only very impressive, but also clearly visible from O'Hare:

Thanks JAL777 & STT757 for the great pics.... NYC just doesn't look the same without the Twin Towers there.  Sad

But for my pick as the best city view from an airport, I agree with Spinkid and choose LAS [McCarran Int'l, Las Vegas]. What a great skyline in the middle of the desert! Where else can you see New York (New York, New York), a Pyramid (Luxor), the Eiffel Tower (Paris, Las Vegas), a giant bronzed- glass hotel (Mandalay Bay) and dozens of other hotel/resorts? All from the comfort of the air conditioned airport terminal!

Oh, I almost forgot. There is also an airliner graveyard in view of the airport! I know this appeals to some airliner junkies in this room!
