    Default "Where in North America?" --- Section III

    This is the Third section of a popular mind puzzle first brought to the membership by member Quebec Gen.

    General Rules of the "Where in North America is this?" Game
    1) Anyone can play -- just follow along and test your mettle about places found in North America.
    2) You'll need to be a registered member of this Forum if you want to contribute your own photographs and/or participate in the discussion for each place.
    3) You will need to have the ownership or usage rights to any photo that you post on this forum, as per the terms & conditions of Federal copyright law. If you post a photo that you do not own the rights to, Forum Management reserves the right to remove it. As a matter of practical use, we would expect that you would be posting only those photos that you or a close family member have taken.
    4) Every photo of a mystery place needs to be unique in some way -- And there should be "visual clues" in the photo to enable us to solve where the mystery location is...

    Default I don't believe it.

    Two weeks ago we picked up a houseguest in San Jose, and we decided to drive her up the San Mateo coast. Instead of cutting over 17 or 9 to Santa Cruz, we took the winding-over-the-top route down into Pescadero (where, to our chagrin they were in the middle of an annual Portuguese religious festival of some ilk; so we couldn't squeeze into Duarte's Tavern on a bet (killer artichoke soup, cioppino, and pies).

    We headed north up the coast from there (finally dined in Half Moon Bay).

    This lighthouse is maybe 5 miles south of Pescadero, if that... had we come up from Santa Cruz chances are I would have recognized this.

    Ah well.

    So anyway, just so I have an excuse to post this, not because I have any reason to believe it:

    Gracie Mansion (residence of NYC Mayor).

    Yep, you most certainly would have spotted it -- I half expected you to be the first to "ring the bell" on this one!
    Gracie Mansion (residence of NYC Mayor).
    Now, that's funny!

    But.... no.

    That photo demonstrates why you should get up early in the morning with your camera.

    What city is this? First hint; not on the west coast.

    Default That's a good one

    A mill town in New England would be my guess -- but which one?

    Hmmmmmm

    Default Not really

    This city would not be considered part of New England (not in ME, NH, VT, MA, CT, or RI).

    The ruins on the left side of the river ARE an old mill, but that isn't what this city is known for.

    Default How about New Brunswick?

    This seems familiar -- but I can't quite place it....

    Default minor correction...

    Probably more an old powerhouse, not a mill.

    I'll toss another clue after lunch (PDT).
