Thread: Guess the City 234: Plural Satellite Edition (broadband?)

    Guess the City 234: Plural Satellite Edition (broadband?)

    So I don't know how difficult these will be, but these are from Google Maps' satellite feature. They're from five different cities. Start the guesses...

    This is difficult.
    I used to live in #3, am guessing that #2 is somewhere on the Mississippi River and I've seen the image of #5 but can't remember where it is (Milwaukee?). Other than that, I've got nothing.

    No # 1 is LA

    No # 4 is El Paso (or elswhere on the Tex-Mex. border)

    Number 1 is LA, I think. I was looking at it yesterday in Google satellite and it looks strikingly familiar...

    Number 1 is definitely downtown Los Angeles and number 4 is definitely the downtown border crossing between El Paso, TX and Juarez, CH.

    Number 3 looks like Charleston, SC and number 5 looks like it is somewhere in Chicago.

    The only place that I can think of for number 2 is in the New Orleans, LA area.

    You got it.

    Not Milwaukee or Chicago either.

    No, it's not quite Louisiana.

    #2 and #5 are still unguessed...

    #2 is Memphis.

    Still no idea on #5 other than it looks flat.

    Number 5 is definitely Baltimore. That park in the picture is Patterson Park. I think I see the Pagoda.
