    Pittsburgh, PA? For some reason the the Hotel Lenox seems familar. Although I don't see any rivers.

    Looks like someplace in upstate NY to me, but I can't think of any cities with railroad yards like that.

    Not in New York, nor PA.

    Here's another view.

    Don't see a bay or a port but I'll take a long shot and guess pre-earthquake SanFrancisco?....
    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
    From Kelly's Heroes (1970)


    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
    From Electric Horseman (1979)

    Still no correct guesses. Dubuque is the closest.

    Here's a view that may narrow it down a little:

    Nashville, TN? But the funicular is not in my memory of that city, so ....

    That was the flash thought I had. It really does look a lot like Dubuque. Somehow I knew it wasn't correct.

    I-35 occupies what was previously the railroad yard.
