About This Quiz

Are you a firm believer in the adage that a city is defined by its neighborhoods? If so, then this quiz is for you. We've compiled a list of 35 famous neighborhoods, and we would like you to tell us what city each neighborhood is in. Let's get started!

Even if you are not a geography nut, you've probably been around long enough to know that most cities have certain nooks that are, at times, more famous than those cities themselves. In each of these notable neighborhoods, something happened to make it stand out. Some of these areas are famous for their history, some for their architecture, and some for their culture. Take the neighborhood of Haight-Ashbury in San Francisco, California.

Haight-Ashbury is well known as the home of the hippie counterculture of the 1960s. The area is defined by two streets, Haight and Ashbury, named after two early San Francisco settlers, Henry Haight and Munroe Ashbury. If you're ever in the area on the second Sunday in June of every year, make sure that you stop by for the iconic Haight-Ashbury street fair. Groovy, man.

Do you think you've got the smarts to pair each one of these neighborhoods with its host city? Let's find out.
