Does anyone know anything about where this picture was taken?

Chicago would also be one of my guesses, followed by suburban Dallas or Houston.

It was my guess as well, but having been there, I know there are no highways that run along the front of the building like this - there is a river. That's what threw me. And the pedestrian bridge.

That's definitely not Chicago or its suburbs. I looked at downtown Houston and Dallas photos and didn't see a grouping of rounded office buildings like this either. It could very well be a city in China or Japan. The highway running between the buildings does give it a "suburban U.S. office complex" look to it though. :huh: Very interesting. Los Angeles, not downtown, but Century City or something?

I was going to say Boston or Philly, but I don't think they have a big collection of rounded glass skyscrapers like that (?) Minneapolis?

Where did you find it Dozer?

This photo is from the Hartford forum photo thread.

I'm going to say Los Angeles. The city and metro have clusters of large skyscrapers spread through out the area. Also looking at pictures of the LA metro area, I have seen Highways running through a cluster of skyscrapers.

If you look there's also a road going under the building to the right. Bottom right corner. My guess would be an asian city.

I found it being used as a background on a MySpace profile, and it really piqued my curiosity. I think it may be a German city actually. Asian, maybe, but in the glass you can see some letters being reflected, and they don't look Asian.

I pride myself on my ability to recognize a city, but this one is driving me absolutely nuts. :wacko:

It almost looked fake to me, but the skybridge is awesome. Where was the picture found?

Got it! It's the financial/business district in Paris around the La Defense de Paris statue.

More at Wikipedia:

And the site where I first found it, about 2/3's of the way down:

http://www.ketchum.org/bridges.html

Apparently the bridge is called the "Japan Bridge". Used the google keywords "urban pedestrian bridge" to find it, second page:

Woot!

Well that was fun and interesting. Perhaps someone else has a mystery photo out there of a city that they can't recognize. Perhaps we can do this on a weekly basis. :lol:
