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!
Where in the World is Gary? — #1
Latitude — 24° 33′ North
Longitude — 81º 47′ West
This island measures about 1 mile by 4 miles. Its original inhabitants were immigrants from the Bahamas, known as “conchs.” This place was once the home of both Ernest Hemingway and Tennessee Williams.
It marks the southernmost point in the continental United States and is only 90 miles from Cuba. A “Southernmost House” marks the spot.
Bohemian revelry is commonplace here, for example, nursing an alcoholic drink as you watch the sun set at Mallory Square.
