Harbours kind of are, if they are natural harbours. Not sure about the others though.

Typed harbour and it didn't work, please can you make it so harbour is acceptable since that's how harbour is spelt in many countries

Maine is quite French, but retained the old, English way of spelling harbor, not the British 19th Century, French language -our spellings of ancient Latin -or suffixes.

Should really be clearer on what landforms are. Also, BakersField appears to be a typo.

Gonna be honest here, no local from Flushing refers to Corona Park as "Flushing Meadows". There's "Corona Park" or "Fresh Meadows". Yes "Flushing Meadows" is the official name but no one knows it unless they Google it.

Can you accept 'Harbour'?

Level 77
Mar 8, 2019
Since it's the name of a specific town, there's a case for only allowing the US spelling as that's what's used in the name. But JetPunk is usually more lenient on spellings - I did try 'harbour' and felt a little hard done by...

I agree with comments that a port is not a land form. If you want a city from Oregon, use Lake Oswego, Troutdale, Klamath Falls, Starvation Heights, Hood River.
