So Seattle is ruled out, as well? I mean, I can't see the Smith Tower in any of the photos on this page

I was in Seattle today.... awesome skyline to be sure, but I noticed there's not much buildup around the CBD. Not that that matters.
Otherwise, the topography in Seattle is pretty cool. Very nice city as far as I could tell.

8.5/10
