Here are a couple of clues: It's on the East Coast, on a peninsula and is *very* photographed. In fact, it's a major landmark for this city.

I consider this city to be My One Particular Harbor and love being there more than anywhere else in the world.

Nope, though Buffett used to have a place on an island south of there, from what I understand.

The OPH reference was just my own reference, because it's the place I would lay anchor if I had to choose a permanent location.

since blindly searching for painted row houses wasn't working, i decided to see what place phinz might like to retire to. upon viewing his webpage, i discovered an affection for charleston.
ergo, painted row houses + east coast city + phinz's background = charleston.

how's that mr. investigator?

I figured somebody would get it that way. Good investigating. I'd give you karma, but apparently I haven't spread the love enough.
