Before today’s post, Gary wants to wish everyone a Happy New Year. I hope that 2015 becomes the best year ever for me and my readers.
This new series is a throwback to the game, “Where in the World is Carmen San Diego?” I will give a brief description of a place, including its latitude and longitude and several “interesting” facts about the location. I will also try to include a picture or two from my visit to the place. You, the reader, can then hazard a guess to answer the question posed in the game.
I will reveal the correct location on the following day. Hopefully, this type of post will encourage interaction and perhaps stimulate comments. Good Luck!
The answer to yesterday’s place (#277) is Atlantic City, New Jersey, USA
Where in the World is Gary? #278
Latitude — 38° 58′ North
Longitude — 76° 30′ West
The original name of this place was Providence. It was once the capital of the United States; it is still a state capital. This place is the oldest state capital in the US still in use. Its State House has the largest wooden dome in the US.
John Paul Jones, a hero of the War of 1812, is buried here.
Sailors often begin their careers here.
