Lived in next town to Norwalk, CT for 3 years in the 1980s, and knew nothing about oysters or Oyster Festival there.

Same here. I was surprised that Norwalk made the list and major cities like Newport RI didn't. I never thought that Norwalk, which is barely considered a city (don't cities need at least 100,000 people?) would be on this list. That just shows that the US barely has any big cities starting with N.

I'm going to take a wild guess and say that New Bedford is on the south coast of Massachusetts.

it's really called the 'South Shoah' and Gloucester is better known for whaling nowadays (whale watches, that is; nobody does whaling anymore except the Inuit); but on the other hand, New Bedford is better known for starting with 'n'

Well, Ishmael, I was so sure the whaling place in MA had to be Nantucket, but alas...

I feel so bad for Nashua that their biggest claim to fame is that they had a fictional branch that was a minor detail in the background of a television show.
