    Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania Famous for Steel. 150 years of smoke and grime because of all the steel being manufactured, where Andrew Carnegie and Henry Frick lived while they made their millions. Now famous for technology , advances in medicine and sports teams football the Steelers, hockey the Penguins, and once great baseball the Pirates, though they have been pretty bad the last 15 years or so. Pittsburgh occassionally is named The Most Livable City in America from time to time.. Sadly these days it is becoming well known for the violent crime especially among youth.

    Oh yeah, don't forget, Heinz...ketchup, soup, etc

    Bombay (now called Mumbai) India.

    Capital of the State Maharashtra. India's commercial capital and it's largest city. A city that never sleeps.

    Over crowded with an over burdened infrastructure

    Dirty and squalid, a sorry mess of a place.

    Where the rich are very rich and the poor very poor.

    Home of Bollywood, that produces the largest number of films in the world. Has a beautiful seafront .

    But once you settle down here, you wouldn't want to leave it.

    Peak Hill is another one of our agriculturally-based towns which owes its beginning to the gold rushes of the mid- to late-1800s.

    Not exactly famous, just factual.
