Hmmm... this one is tough. Two wild guesses: Schenectady, NY, or Dayton, OH. I'm probaly way off, but what the heck, eh?

Not Peoria; their skyline is more modern. Not Rochester, Minnesota. Definitely not Buffalo.

Here's a hint ... it's in North America.

It't not one of the Quads. Not even Bittendorf.

There's quite a bit of topography in the distant background. I doubt its midwest. Im thinking lower appalachia....

I was thinking that it looks like a piedmont topography. But most of the "known" cities in that region are significantly larger than this one appears to be.

Funnything is, its vaguely familiar, only I just can't place it. Before that third clue I would have guessed Thunder Bay or Sault Ste. Marie, but I think now it has to be east. How about St. John's?

Welcome to downtown Utica, NY...

You could see this clock in the photo, from the gold dome of the Utica bank building.

Brilliant deduction ... Nerudite got it! A city hardly anyone sees - Utica, New York.

Her prize ... a cold six-pack of Utica Club beer!

Okay, you people are now officially scaring me. How much time did you spend on this nerudite?

A lunch hour... or a little less. It probably wouldn't take me so long, but our network was wayyyyyy slow today.
