Albany, NY.

City Hall.

Are you guys turning into Peter Fonda and Dennis Hopper?

("They went looking for America...")

(...And found it in each other's arms!)

Now that I think about it, that's really a great way to spend Thanksgiving!!

i say philadelphia

Don't think so...

Beth said...

Not New Orleans.

Cleveland?

Theo Boehm said...

That's Albany, NY, City Hall, with the statue of Major General Philip Schuyler.

Albany?

blake said...

No, Theo, that's that new casino, "Albany, Vegas". That statue's right next to the Eiffel Tower.

Is the clock working? The shadows seem rather long, and the light too rosy, for 10:10 a.m.

Theo Boehm said...

Blake, They're getting desperate. What's next, "Worcester, Las Vegas," where you can go into an authentic reproduction of a dive on Main St. and play Keno?

Ron said...

Columbus Ohio?

blake said...

Theo,

Either that or "Fresno, Las Vegas", where you can simulate walking through raising fields.

Michael S. beat me too it.

The State Capital is directly behind the photographer.

Bissage said...

I say EPCOT Center!!!

And there's no use trying to tell me different because I'm not changing my mind, EVER!!!

The state flag in the first photo appears to be that of Missouri. Close as I can get without wasting a lot of time doing photo analysis of the building stone.

That building stone bugs me, especially the trim. That stuff is almost identical the the Triassic red-beds of the Connecticut River valley, which they use for building stone all over southern New England and eastern New York.

In which case Albany is quite believable, opening the possibility that the flag is actually a Dutch flag -- Albany was settled by the Dutch and this is the 400th anniversary of Hudson -- possibly flown in violation of protocol beneath the Stars and Stripes.

The building is a beautiful example of H.H. Richardson Romanesque.

peter hoh said...

Bart, Albany has it's very own city flag.

I note that Albany, NY, has a law school. Another year as a visitor?

Better an H.H. Richardson castle than an H.H. Holmes one:
