The Danbury, Connecticut graticule is at latitude 41, longitude -73. This graticule includes the cities of Bridgeport, Danbury, Greenwich, Norwalk, Stamford, and Waterbury in the state of Connecticut; and the entirety of Beacon, Poughkeepsie, and White Plains, New York. The eastern half of Kingston, New York is also included in the graticule. Finally, this graticule also includes a very small section of northeastern Bergen County, New Jersey. Most of the terrain is either suburban towns, residential areas, or hilly woods and farms. There are many small and otherwise lakes and ponds, as well as some of Long Island Sound and the Hudson River from Kingston to Yonkers. Geohashing shouldn't be too technically difficult, although there will probably be ample opportunities for Water Geohash Achievements.
