Free rep point if you get it. The clues are all going to be super obscure, by the way. Don't cheat! Play fair! And good luck!

  1. Lots of homes here are legally owned by animals after legislation passed in the 20th century that deemed any property not explicitly willed to an heir will be passed onto the owner's pet.
  2. One of our parks was originally used as a graveyard for yellow fever victims. It was also used for public hangings!
  3. It was originally purchased for $24.
  4. The first showing of 3D films took place here. Yes, you had to buy tickets.
  5. Toilet paper was invented here! Yay!

It's pretty misleading since #1 is a city (NYC), #3 is one portion of that city (Manhatten), and #5 is a city (Albany) 2.5 hours away and #4 is on a completely different coast (LA). Not sure about #2.
