Questions to How Well Do You Know New York?

Here are the questions to the Jeopardy! answers in the category “New York Cities’ Nicknames” I posted last month:

  1. This nickname for New York City was used by Washington Irving; Bruce Wayne put it before “City.”. – What is Gotham?
  2. Poughkeepsie is “The Queen City” of this river.  – What is the Hudson?
  3. Slowly I turned…to this “Honeymoon Capital of the World.”  – What is Niagara Falls?
  4. Second only to New York City in population, this western port is “The Nickel City.” – What is Buffalo?
  5. Sharing its name with a European capital, it was known as “Copper City” for its production of that metal.  – What is Rome?

Typical of my New York State knowledge, I got four correct (I took too much time on the last one); how did you do?

Feel free to leave a comment, and please come back – I write and post often!  And if you like what I have to say and how I say it, you’ll probably enjoy my novels as well.  They’re listed below, and you can read more about them on my improved website, designed and built by my son Don, http://www.randolphmase.com.  On my site, you’ll also find excerpts of my books that you can read – please check it out!
