What Little Thing Makes YOUR Hometown Famous?

Every town, big OR small is famous for something.  The quirky, the better!

And that's what we asked on the show this morning:

What is the LITTLE THING that makes your town FAMOUS?

I was born in the small town of Paramus, NJ.  It's claim to fame?  The Glam-Rock band Trixter was formed there AND it was the setting for the movie "Coneheads".

Lissa's hometown in Michigan is where the Edmund Fitzgerald went down - Whitefish Point on Lake Superior.

Here's a few more from you guys...

--Hollidaysburg, PA - Home of the Slinky!
--Berwick - we were on Hitlers top "town to bomb" list because we were one of the top makers of tanks and we currently have a bunker under the town to fit the entire population of Berwick
--Jessup, Saint Ubaldo Day.

--Scranton, PA had electric street cars before it was cool.
--Downingtown, PA, a scene from the original Blob was filmed at a diner there.
--Dushore, pa- only one traffic light- in all of Sullivan county!
--Lake Ronkonkoma, NY - The lake itself is plagued by a supposed curse from a Native American girl ("Princess Ronkonkoma") who lures young men to the center of the lake & drowns them.
--Carbondale, PA. The movie “Blue Valentine” was shot on the street I live on. Got to see Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams everyday.

--Carbondale, PA - the UFO
--Astoria, NY. Christopher Walken
--Harrison, NJ. The street I lived on was the opening scene for the Karate Kid.
--Hanover, PA.. The SNACK Capitol of the world!!!!!!! Woo hoo!!!!
--Hackettstown, NJ. M&Ms. There is a factory there and on the day they roast the peanuts you can smell them.
--Gettysburg PA, ummm yeah.  Some famous battle.  And Lincoln. Didn't he have an address there?
