Don't know if anyone mentioned Pasadena - one in TX and one in CA.

Park Ridge NJ (my town) and Park Ridge Illinois (Hillary Clinton's town) lol

A couple weird ones where states names are cities in other states:

West New York, NJ
Florida, NY
Wyoming, New York
California, Maine

ALSO - Regarding Portland, OR - Portland, ME
Portland Oregon was founded by two New Englanders, one from Portland and one from Boston. Each wanted to name it after his own city, so they literally flipped a coin, and the guy from Portland won. That's how your city got it's name! Imagine, you were a heads or tails away from being Boston, OR!!!

Default Clinton, Maine....at the top of the heap!

As I was trying to locate the town of Clinton, the site of an old photo (see albums), I learned it was Clinton, Maine. We have a Clinton PA, and I checked with Clinton MA. There is also a Clinton MD and OH. I also learned that there are a total of 22 states with a Clinton. I think the majority are named after DeWitt Clinton.

From all my contact with the people of Clinton Maine, it seems like a mighty fine little Town!
