The first pic was taken at the top of the main street running through Bridgeport. If you follow the boulevard through downtown, at the end you find a set of stairs I believe. That was where I set this one up.
As Jack said, the second one I did with a city background, most likely from The Sims Resource. I am having some trouble with my internet or browser right now so I can't seem to get things to work, otherwise I would post a link. I'll come back later with it if I remember. Terrible memory, but I will try.
