I think that is by lake Dallas, maybe by Rockwall?
Possibly up by Lewisville as well... or Cedar Hill....
But my first instinct was that that looks like the Northeastern part of the metroplex.
I could be wrong.

Everyone is flaming liberal and gay
There 3 sides of California, the ghettos, the Rich part, and the middle class esp in the IE.
Everyone is too liberal for their own good
everything is party over there
no one actually works

Huh, funny, I never imagined people thinking that NH was full of tree-huggers. That's clearly Vermont.

I don't have any pictures of the "big" cities (Concord pop. 40,000, Nashua pop. 80,000, Manchester pop. 100,000), although Portsmouth has a very urban character:



As for everyone being well off... I don't normally take photos of run-down houses or anything, but we definitely have our fair share of poverty in this state:



And for whoever said that NH was ugly... I could post a million photos to dispel that, but I think one will suffice (taken in my own town):
