Where's the Best Place to See Your Town?

Recommended Posts

Just curious. Photos are welcome.

A good piece of info for anyone interested in visiting your city.

In Atlanta, It's is along I-20 going into the city, probably.

Veterans' Memorial Drive in Cobb County has a nice view, too.

Little known place:

In Mt. Harmony Baptist Church's cemetery, which is just off of Vet's Mem. Drive, there is a hill with an absolutely spectactular view of ATL.

I believe this view is from a high point in East Boston. From wherever it is, the view is probably the best of the skyline in my opinion, and the somewhat distant Hancock and Pru are able to be seen as part of a more put together skyline from that angle. Googled:

Where's the cliff they shot the pics from Frasier's apartment?

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

Q2) Does the view from Frasier's apartment really exist?

A2) The shot of Seattle out of Frasier's window was taken by a camera up the side of a cliff, so it is a true shot of the city but it is not possible to get the same view out of any building within the city. Incidentally, the image measures 40 ft x 20ft. (Source: Roy Christopher, Set Designer of 'Frasier' - Season 1 DVD boxset)

This is the best Detroit skyline photograph I've seen, as it get most everything in a single frame. It was taken from Midtown, I'd guess on a roof just west of Wayne State University.
