Where in the World is Gary? #278

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

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.
