    I'll show more pics if it's too hard.

    Don't know why, but when I saw that pic, Syracuse,NY came to mind. And I don't remember even being there... maybe I've seen them on other photos... I don't know, so that's my guess.

    I think we have about 5 of that same building here. In fact, I'd bet that just about every city and large university in the US has at least one of those.

    Well they're probably lower-income housing of some sort, or student housing, as they have quite a few cell phone antennas on top. From what I've seen, people tend to try and avoid living under those.

    SkeLeton got it right. It's Syracuse.

    It's hard to stump you people.

    I used to work in an office at the base of the building at the far left and (unfortunately) had a view of them from my apartment six blocks away. Looks like this was taken from the Everson's Harrison Street parking lot. Too bad I didn't stumble on to this sooner, would have nailed it. That whole Jefferson Towers/Presidential Plaza/Mulroy-urban-renewal-abortion should be flattened. I wont even get into detail the fantastic and eclectic neighborhood that horrible Soviet-inspired superblock (along with I-81) wiped out.
