Big places on water ....

It looks like it has a sports facility on the left and I know that wherever the Detroit Red Wings play (at least the last time I was there which was 10 years ago) is round (I am pretty sure) and on the water.

So is it Detroit?

Yes, Yes it is! We have a winner! (Although that's Cobo Hall in the picture. Joe Louis Arena would be a bit further to the left if the picture was wider)

Now how would I have recognized it so fast??

I was thinking Joe Louis arena.

I used to travel a lot on business and remember walking endlessly around that place during a 4 day meeting in Detroit. I also rode the monorail around a bunch just to see the city. IMO it was so sad seeing those gorgious old buildings boarded up. I also had a drink at that revolving cocktail lounge. Cheesy but a nice view.

My next guess might have been Cleveland, though I don't think their sports arenas are on the water (though the old baseball staudium was).
