2) New York. Boerum Hill, Brooklyn specifically.
3) Monte Carlo, Monaco. In the royal compound looking to the sea toward the Italian border.
4) Venice. I thought this photo would be the easiest.
I recognized the Brooklyn one right away but couldn't place any of the other ones... Venice was totally not obvious.

I didn't noticed when I first posted. Honestly, I didn't copy! The cities were pretty obvious.

Anytime you see brownstone rowhouses, you can almost always assume NYC or New Jersey.

In order to guess right the person will have to look at the unique flavor and surroundings of the city's street level enviornment to guess where the photo is from. Don't post more than three photos please.

City # 1


City # 2


Good luck guessing. I hope these aren't obvious and I hope this can turn into something fun and hopefully a good way to share what the street activity of US cities look like (rather than lifeless skylines).

1.portland
2. Los Angeles
