Best elevated city views by car
August 5, 2005 11:43 PM Subscribe
I'm taking a road trip through New England with my shortwave radio. I want a spot to perch with my car and do some long-distance nighttime listening with a beautiful elevated view, preferably overlooking a city. (Certain restrictions apply.) Any suggestions?

I'm going to be renting a car and taking a road trip - pointing the car in any particular direction and just going. I'm bringing my shortwave radio, so it's something of a "radio holiday" as I drive the countryside and catch distant stations.
If you know Boston at all, I'm a big fan of the panoramic city view from the park on Summit Ave in Brookline, and I'm looking for something similar in my destination, but even better. Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont are all possibilities. I have three days.
My main qualifications:
- High elevation (the higher the better for shortwave)
- Great view, preferably overlooking a cityscape
- Not dangerous after dark (i.e., wild animals / insane people)
- Electrically quiet (no power transformers everywhere, sodium lamps, etc.)
