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.

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.

level 71
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.

Flushing Meadows is not a city. It's a park in the borough of Queens in New York.
