I like Dayton, because while moving cross-country in a car without a cd player their univeristy/alternative station played a song by awesome, little-known 60s northwest band "The Sonics."

I think adding a hint to your pic might add some interest to the game, so go ahead and do that when you post your pic. Just don't make it too obvious. Also, if you guess correctly, make sure to post your own pick of a skyline. Thanks!

Clevelanders have thicker skin than that!

That'd be Moses Cleaveland, who wasn't a congressman either. He was a lawyer, though ... LOL

Damn, I was going to go with Dayton even before the hints but then I second guessed myself...

As for the new pic, Memphis?

I wouldn't have recognized that picture as Dayton, and I used to live there. Taken from an unusual angle, and at dusk, the buildings are hard to identify.

(It's NEI's turn, but in order to keep things moving, I'll post this in the interim...)

ETA: Clues: Home to a minor league baseball team with a non-traditional name that produced a hall of famer who is perhaps best known for hitting over 500 homers as a switch hitter. A very long highway passes through town but the speed limit is 35 mph throughout - this road is for enjoying the scenery, not for speed. It was the home to author Thomas Wolfe and also a pioneer of electronic music by the name of Robert Moog.

Thanks, HandsUpThumbsDown, can you provide us with a clue? I think that will be helpful, particularly if you are using a non-major city skyline pic. Chicago, NYC, LA, etc. are pretty easy to point out, but some of these smaller ones can be tricky without a push in the right direction.
