Simply put, I put in a google image search for each city and embedded the first image that appeared that was not a map, flag, text, chart, or road sign. Unsurprisingly, city skylines were heavily represented, but there were a few local quirks that sprouted up.

The search query: was "City name, State name"

UNITED STATES

New York City: Brooklyn Bridge fireworks


Los Angeles: Downtown skyline at dusk


Chicago: Skyline


Dallas: Texas Star ferris wheel


Philadelphia: Comcast Center


Houston: Downtown skyline


Washington, DC: Washington Monument


Miami: Mouth of Miami River


Atlanta: 1997 poster of Turner Field and Fulton Co. Stadium



Boston: Celtics game at TD Garden




San Francisco: Golden Gate Bridge, duh



Detroit: Bagley Memorial Fountain



Phoenix: Downtown skyline


Seattle: Space Needle & Mount Rainier, of course
