Here is an idea for a thread. Create a riddle by using clues to a given city.

I'll Start.

- I love sailing my yacht under the bridges in the summer.
- Breakers and Rosecliff are some of the properties here.
- Lots of tennis history.

What city am I?

^Nope.

I'll wait this one out. It's too easy for me, but I'll let some others have a go.

I enjoy hanging on Thames though. Via Via makes a mean slice of pizza as well.

York, PA ??? That was tough
....

-I am where the newly weds and where the nearly dead come to.

-My average housing cost soared to 900K at one point but soared down near 200K in about a year due to crime and bad economy.

-Obama went here recently to try to rehabilitate the city from its rough economy.

Who am I?

Newarkbomb, i think your post is talking about Fort Myers, FL. As for my post, that's not the correct city. It is a Northeastern city though.
