Yeah, being at the top of a reddit page is a pretty fleeting accomplishment. I'm chalking up the hype to most people not understanding how reddit works.
Seems obvious that the reporter doesn't: "Apparently Cleveland's skyline beats views in other places such as Florida, France and Italy."
It is a cool picture (but it also bothers me that it's at least 6 years old. Notably, the Columbia Building is still standing and the old LeBron banner is still hanging.)
