I have a view of houses With lots of trees and the tree in the hole, and the hole in the ground and the green grass grows all around, all around, and the green grass grows all around.

I have a stream and river with riverbank parks and the green grass grows all around all around, and the green grass grows all around.

I wouldn't have it any other way.

I can't stand concrete jungles. I need greenery all around, all around.

I do live on a city lot of a quarter acre, chain link fenced in for privacy, as all these lots are.

So I've got the flea on the feather, the feather on the bird, the worm in the bird's beak, the bird in the nest, the nest on the branch, the branch on the tree, the tree in the hole, the hole in the ground and the green grass grows all around, all around, and the green grass grows all around.

When we retire to our chosen location, we will still have that though less grass on the ground due to Sandy soil.

If you're in Rochester, NY then the place to go is the top of Cobbs Hill on the eastern edge of the city. It's the 2nd highest point in the county, but provides the most complete view. The city looks quite dense and vast from up there, especially with the lights at night. Not only that, but most of Monroe County is clearly visible from Lake Ontario to the rolling hills of the Southern Tier. Fall foliage is beautiful from up there as well...

Probably my favorite skyline in Upstate New York.

There are a handful of places I know of in Indianapolis to get great views of downtown. I'm too lazy to search for my own pictures so I'll post some from Google Streetview to give you an idea.

The famous side view from the Central Canal. You'll see this a lot if you watch the Colts play in primetime or March Madness is taking place here or something.

Another good one is along the White River Trail west of the Zoo.

Another good one is along W Clair St over the Central Canal. This one is a bit famous as well.

Possibly my personal favorite is The Crown at Crown Hill Cemetery. It's the highest point in Marion County and even though it's a good 3-4 miles from downtown, it provides a great view.
