Where in the World is Gary? #280

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 (#279) is Arlington, Virginia, USA 

Where in the World is Gary?   #280

Latitude — 43° 04′ North

Longitude — 70° 45′ West

This place was an important ship-building center and is the oldest city in its state. Strawberry Banke is the oldest part of the city. John Paul Jones lived here. A group of restored Colonial houses sit on “The Hill.”
