    Guess the City 150

    How 'bout a good ol' fashioned GTC?

    SOME say the world will end in fire, Some say in ice.
    From what I’ve tasted of desire
    I hold with those who favor fire.
    But if it had to perish twice, I think I know enough of hate
    To know that for destruction ice
    Is also great
    And would suffice.

    Robert Frost (1874–1963) (From Harper’s Magazine, December 1920.)

    I'm going to go out on a limb and guess Erie, PA or some other city with some sort of minor league baseball team, maybe single A, double AA, or even triple AAA?
    A guy once told me, "Do not have any attachments, do not have anything in your life you are not willing to walk out on in 30 seconds flat if you spot the heat around the corner."

    I'm pretty sure it's Binghamton, NY. That would be the NYSEG stadium home of the Binghamton Mets.

    We have a winner...

    jsk1983 is the winner. I had hoped that the "reverse" angle on the skyline would make it more difficult, since the front view from the confluence of the rivers is a much more famous view:

    Congrats, jsk! Gotta find a tougher one...
