Yeah the 10 first pictures could have been really taken in NYC. Except of course if you're an expert in the Statue of Liberty and find out the little differences (outside than the size which isn't visible on pictures). However, there are numerous hints in the pictures of the second serie. For instance, the little guys from the pedestrian lights or, even more obvious, the French license plates (and cars) on the third pictures from the bottom. Finally the last picture is here to give the answer. Actually, I'm pretty sure the opposite could be done, I mean giving the impression you're in Paris from NYC pictures. I've already seen pictures from Buenos Aires which were pretending to be from Paris and despite having lived all my life here I really believed it. Unfortunately, it's not my boyfriend who has taken those pics. I've found actually that thread in which there was all the pictures. The guy pretended it was NYC and I fell into the trap, so I wanted to share this experiment with you guys.
