I've lived in Dallas for a year, so my first post will be about Dallas, and I will immediately follow it with my previous city, Corpus Christi.

Knoxville, Tennessee:

The Sunsphere, left over from the 1982 World's Fair

Clairton Coke Works. Part of the reason Pittsburgh took 1st place away from LA for most polluted city air.
Have a coke and a smile.

Kidding aside, Pittsburgh has several buildings/structures that could represent us - U.S. Steel Bldg., PPG Place... I like the Cathedral of Learning on Pitt Campus.

Fort Pitt Block House built in 1764 is located in Point State Park.

For Iowa City, it's gotta be Old Capitol (original state capitol building) and the four buildings of the Pentacrest (early university buildings).



For a more modern landmark, I like the Plaza Towers.

When I think of Houston I think of that multi-tiered triangular tower downtown, and the uber-tall tower in the Galleria.
