    From the look of the Building on the left, I would say New Orleans.

    I'm sorry. Is my bias showing?

    The ends can justify the means.

    I'll say St. Louis, because I think I see a premonition of the Arch in the background.

    First correct guess. GeogPlanner pinpointed the exact street.

    I figured it was LV since no one had guessed it yet, and it was an obvious choice for Nevada. I also knew that Freemont was the first street with a traffic light, which seems centered in one of the photos.
