Two pictures that would sell my town, Cranford, NJ:

My town has a river winding through it, and was once referred to as "The Venice of New Jersey". It was a popular vacation destination for residents of Brooklyn in the 1800s, they owned Victorian homes as second homes along the river. The culture really involved the river, and does to this day. There used to be river carnivals with floats (like parade floats) but on the river and we have a 100 year old canoe club. Canoeing is pretty big here, a lot of riverfront residents own canoes. So this picture shows the river, canoes, and a couple big Victorian homes which honestly pretty much embodies Cranford perfectly.

And the second one is a picture of the river in the fall with some houses partly in view. I could have chosen a picture of downtown or something but I think this one is a better overall idea of Cranford. There's a lot of wooded areas, parks, and of course riverfront and I love my town in every season, it's always so pretty. Our downtown is nice, old and historic, but downtowns are kind of generic, much like skylines. Nature is a much better view, IMO.

This is harder than it seems, even for a town rather than a city!

Default Love this thread! :)

More please...

p.s. I like the 2 pic idea... one of the skyline and/or downtown, a neighborhood. Although I might suggest including a third, to include a popular recreation area if I were trying to sell my city or town to a friend.

For instance, for someplace like Denver, the skyline, a neighborhood and then something like hiking or some snow sport.

But anyway, enjoying all the pictures, thanks!

This is harder than you'd think. Here are two for Jersey City:

Liberty State Park, a 1200 acre park with sweeping views of the Harbor, Statue of Liberty, and NYC skyline:

Rowhouses like these are in great supply downtown, and scattered here and there throughout the rest of the city:
