Where have I seen this?

I'll fall out of my chair if anyone can guess correctly. Though I suppose there's a few people who could exploit their local advantage. Anyone?

I'll guess the Coast Guard station at Sandy Hook ...

Stay in your chair.
My guess would not be local--it looks a lot like symbols and such over archways in Amsterdam. Maybe that is the background inspiration for it.
Can't wait to read you answer--make sure you do answer.

I'll be interested to find out.
forest green's answer sounds very reasonable. Don't think I've ever seen it.

Merchant Marine Academy?

Local advantage in effect. Its' the top of the Asbury Park convention center.

Sorry Laura, No clue :(

Good guesses everyone, but my brother is correct (local advantage, of course).

The pic is a detail of the newly restored Asbury Park Convention Center.

Have you been to the boardwalk there recently, Kev? It's really nice, though there's nothing yet for kids.

Oh and KGMom, I poked around some on the web and learned that the convention center was designed by the same Beaux Arts architect that designed Grand Central Station in NYC. There's some beautiful details to the building that are being slowly restored after years of neglect.

Oh and the building sits at the edge of the ocean, which accounts for the fishy motifs, I guess.

I thought maybe it was Weapon Station Earle!

Rabbit's Guy: Pfft. You can't get anywhere near that place... especially not with a camera!
