When I mean general area I mean your home, and the block or few blocks that surround it.

For me its the local corn mill, and if you walk a little bit down, the TWU towers. Yea, Denton doesn't have much in the way of tall buildings What is it for where you guys live?

I live just a few blocks south of Downtown Albuquerque in the Barelas neighborhood. Albuquerque Plaza, our city and state's tallest building, is what I can see. I have an especially good view of it from my bedroom window. It's 351 feet tall and was built in 1990.

The pic below shows the view I see every day walking toward Downtown along south 4th Street, which is my neighborhood's main street. It's from Wikipedia:

That's pretty tall lol OKC doesn't seem to have a big skyline, so that's like the one building I notice when I drive by it. Its very cool looking though.

I can see the spire of 1WTC from outside my door. It's 1,776' tall and about 2 miles away.

Library Tower in downtown LA (or Wilshire Grand if you count the spire). The antennas on Mt. Lee aren't that tall, but since they start at 1500 ft above sea level, their tops are higher than any of the skyscrapers downtown.
