Where is this? #21

I guess it has to be a yes / no question. And the way you phrased it, it isn’t easily answered yes / no. But after some reading, it is definitely more yes than no.

You may have missed my edit

Is the dock historically significant?

I don’t think the dock is, no. Looks relatively new.

Is the significance with this location due to something located under the water?

Cultural significance, the answer to this question is sometimes.

Historical significance, the answer to this question is no.

Does this place have anything to do with immigration?

In a peculiar way, yes. It wasn’t a landing site for immigrants, though. But many immigrants spent years here.

Was this place an internment camp?

No.

Ok, time for a trivia hint, that should lead to this location in a few obscure steps.

So this place isn’t an internment camp, but Natalie Portman would feel safe and secure here (with or without hot grits).

And to recap questions so far:

  • Country’s flag doesn’t “consist of a maple leaf.”
  • Cultural significance isn’t only for North Americans, though currently this place has a small cultural influence on Canada.
  • Historical significance is generally before 1850.
  • People do not primarily speak French.
  • Signs that I blurred were in English.
  • This place does currently have something to do with entertainment, but it seems to be only occasionally.
  • The dock itself is not historically significant.
  • Some of the cultural significance of this place is underwater.
  • None of the historical significance of this place is underwater.
  • This place is connected with immigration, though in a peculiar way (peculiar immigration?)
  • Many immigrants spent years here.
  • Not an internment camp.

Do any members of famous east coast bands come from here?

Is it Natalie Portman’s home town?

If you mean Canada’s East Coast, I’m pretty certain that no members of famous East Coast bands come from here.

No. She was born in Jerusalem. This is not in Jerusalem.

Not sure if she’s ever been here, either. She was just part of the hint: “Natalie Portman would feel secure and safe in this location.”

i keep thinking Long island, new york… but i dont wanna waste a guess on that - anyone wanna look into that

Yeah, I too thought that but I can’t see the Portman reference. (The hot grits thing is about an internet troll.) I was also thinking New Jersey because of Garden State the movie with Portman. But again, I can’t figure out the underwater cultural significance. I think it’s important to figure out the significance because that is the reason MiG posted this one.

Safe and secure…

yes, safe and secure. I’m not sure where Natalie Portman “hangs out” now, but I’m pretty sure it’s not at this place. Though she would probably feel safe and secure here. But for a strange reason… hmmm…

Didn’t think about the Garden State angle of Portman either. But now that you bring it up, that’s another path or tunnel that you can take to get from Portman to the target area.

Just like the “Portman would feel safe and secure here” hint, you could say that “Portman would be reminded of connections, especially to this place, from the Garden State.”

[quote=“MiG”]yes, safe and secure. I’m not sure where Natalie Portman “hangs out” now, but I’m pretty sure it’s not at this place. Though she would probably feel safe and secure here. But for a strange reason… hmmm…

Man, I think I understand the tech forum more than I understand this :unamused:

I thought Harvard was where she hangs out.

Got to think hard now!

well this place has something to do with immigration, right? and natalie portman is an immigrant to the united states (born in jerusalem)… something to do with a place of … whats the word… like a land/place where immigrants are “safe”? (haha I’m probably way off)

Is this place an Island, famous for a rather large monument.?

Good question, but no. This isn’t an entry point for immigration, like Ellis Island or whatever, but immigrants did spend some time there. The immigrants were a special kind of immigrant as well.

On top of that, I think it may have been used as a quarantine station at one point.

You guys are taking the Natalie Portman hint the wrong way. Natalie Portman has nothing to do with this place, she’s probably never been there. But think about Natalie Portman’s characters, and one of them would feel safe and secure there.

Another Natalie Portman angle is “Garden State” which I didn’t realize before. Re-read what I said about that for hints.

It is an island yes. The monuments there aren’t large.

Just to make things a bit more interesting, here’s a aerial photo of the island. I had to shrink it a bit, and really crop the background.
