    Guess the City 188

    It's not a famous american skyline by any means and nearly all of it is obscured by the trees across the river so if you can guess from this first picture you either lived here or are well traveled indeed. If it's too tough I have two more pics for you with a lot more clues but i'd like to see if anyone can get this.

    Indeed you can usually tell when the concepts of democracy and citizenship are weakening. There is an increase in the role of charity and in the worship of volunteerism. These represent the élite citizen's imitation of noblesse oblige; that is, of pretending to be aristocrats or oligarchs, as opposed to being citizens.

    I remember (vaguely --it's been a lot of years) an lone skyscraper in Valley Forge that you could easily see from the Penna Pike.
