    #24 – is not NYC City Hall. No idea what it was, but I will tell you it doesn't exist now (Damn shame, too). Our city Hall was built in 1820 and has been on the same site at Broadway and Murray Street ever since. Its home to the mayor's office and Ciy Council. Abe Lincoln lay in state there after his assasination (they sent him up by train).

    #5 This one was missing the city name. It's Pensacola, FL.

    I'd like to know where they got these (if they're from one site, that its) so I could see if any are of my city.

    What's with all this Yankee crap?!?! THE SOUTH WILL RISE AGAIN!!!!!!

  • East Coast Bums

    All a bunch of dumpy hell holes now. The west is the best and has none of that old crap you east coasters have. East coast is now irrelevant!

    When it is time to become your cosplay-favored character we suggest you get a wig to match that character, so you can step into that character totally. And when the event you dressed up for is over, it will be just as easy to step back out of character as well. Enjoy your black women with black women experience!
