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 (#15) is Charlotte Amalie, St Thomas, US Virgin Islands
Where in the World is Gary? #16

William LeBaron Jenney, the father of the skyscraper, lived and worked here. He would be very proud of what his city has become.

A famous “Sue” is found here.
