    mid west some where? i see some of the cars have front tags and some dont making me think its reasonably close to the south or some state line where they dont require the car to have 2 tags. yet there are a good number of "chicago windows"

    Planner Girl's right. Its Chicago. Looks like the near north side (River North) or someplace like that on the north end of the City.

    Right. The building with the curved glass is not anything I have seen in Chicago, especially around River North. There also few one-way streets in Chicago. I see the truck is set up for a plow, though, which would suggest a northern climate.

    Wild guess: Toledo

    Boston? Streets don't line up (aren't straight), which is pretty common in Boston, not so common in the midwest, I think.

    I was going to say CT earlier, but thought the Chicago guesses might be right. Looks like blue CT plates in the photo. How about New Haven?

    YES! YOU'RE TODAY'S BIG WINNER!

    You win an autographed picture of Yale grad GW. (You'll have to get the autograph yourself.)

    You gotta give New Haven (pop 125,000) credit for being mistaken for much bigger cities.

    Can the Pirelli Building off I-95 in New Haven be the ugliest privately owned office building in New England?
