Parking Decks for Photo Taking

I've found parking decks can offer great picture taking opportunities for unique building shots. I plan on being in Cincinnati, Pittsburgh, Cleveland, Detroit, & Buffalo over the next couple of months and wondered if anyone can recommend any downtown parking decks worth checking out.

For Memphis, if you ever make it, check out the Peabody Place parking garage and the Once Commerce Square parking garage (you can't go all the way to the top, but there's still some really good views/perspectives on the upper floors. Also the rooftop of the Madison Hotel has badass views of the Mississippi River, downtown, uptown, Harbor Town, Arkansas, etc.

For Cincinnati or Pittsburgh, you don't even need parking garages. Just drive up a hill, honestly. But there is a nice parking garage spot in Cincinnati at Tower Place Mall downtown with a direct shot of the two old dames in the skyline.

For Cleveland, there are some fantastic skyline shots from the MetroHealth parking garage southwest of downtown and from the Cleveland Clinic garages along Euclid Avenue.

Just about any garage in Detroit offers views. I've gotten some nice shots from the casino garages

One of the best skyline views in Detroit is on top of Parking Structure #2 at Wayne State.
