Where in the World is Gary? #331

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 (#330) is the Normandy Beaches, France

Harbor & Town

Sea captains built their stately Greek Revival mansions in town. Maria Mitchell was a notable resident — she was the first person to see a comet which was invisible to the naked eye.
