When you think of what makes a city unique, what do you picture? Of course, you think of the people that live there. However, you also probably visualize the various landmarks that are located there, and with good reason. Landmarks are a large part of what give a place its character.
Would New York be quite the same without the Statue of Liberty? What about San Francisco without the Golden Gate Bridge or Washington D.C. without the White House? Landmarks like these are so famous that they’re easily associated with those cities even by people who don’t live there. Most importantly of all, each comes attached to an intensely rich history all its own.
