Default What City Has the Most Photos on RP?

A while ago, I recall seeing a thread about which state has the most photos on RP. This got me wondering about which city had the highest number of photos. This list is by no means complete, but here's what I've come up with so far. There might be a city or two with an even higher number of photos, but I can't think of it offhand. Any ideas?

Memphis, TN 1,204
La Crosse, WI 1,087
Philadelphia, PA 1,007
Chicago, IL 854
Atlanta, GA 795
Pittsburgh, PA 641

St. Louis is mid-300s, Dupo, IL is 250s...

I am surprised by the mere 426 photos from St. Paul. Minneapolis is in the lead of the Twin Cities, with 431.

I suppose just by the fact that Wade or M.J. have a large number of photos, their locations would be represented the greatest.

Somewhere around the 200 mark. I'm glad that it's that busy through Joliet.

If you include Saint Paul/St. Paul/St Paul/etc. there are about 800.

Downers grove has about 377, pretty good for a town with just one line through it...

Is Cajon Pass a city? Or is there a town named Cajon?

Wade, I'm surprised Pittsburgh only has 641, where are your other 824 photos from? ; )

There's one big reason why Pittsburgh doesn't have more photos on RP than the current 643. It's Allegheny County, which has 130 separate municipalities. Many of the towns surrounding Pittsburgh are quite small, some have only a few hundred residents. I'd wager that if all of the other boros and townships in Allegheny County were combined into Pittsburgh we'd see well over 1,000 Pittsburgh photos on RP.

Mitch, I do have a couple of shots from MD, WV, and VA

Same more or less with Chicago.
