    Guess the City 151

    OK, maybe this one will require a few more guesses...

    SOME say the world will end in fire, Some say in ice.
    From what I’ve tasted of desire
    I hold with those who favor fire.
    But if it had to perish twice, I think I know enough of hate
    To know that for destruction ice
    Is also great
    And would suffice.

    The canals and gritty industrial buildings make me think of Lowell, Mass.

    Or, perhaps, its nearby, less utopian neighbor, Lawrence, MA??

    OK, that's two today that were guessed in two posts or less. Cyburbia is too urbane and erudite to fool with GTC images.

    Gedunker wins it! Lowell, Mass.

    I used to drive through Lowell, Lawrence, Leominster and "Wista" a/k/a Worcester en route to college in southern Maine, so I had the benefit of having "been there". Still, as I usually win the big zippo, I have to say "I WON", hoo yeah. Thanks, Hawk
