Crown City is a city that is over 100 miles from Elwood City. On the way there you pass through a lot of farmlands. Despite the distance, George walked from Elwood City to there in 11 hours in "The Long Road Home" to raise money for autism research.

Even though Crown City is a parody of New York City, the Reads went to the latter with Buster and his father, Bo, in the pilot episode of Postcards from Buster. Buster also went there two other times in the series.


The kids sing a song about Crown City in "Muffy Goes Metropolitan" that goes like this.

Crown City, you're dynamite

You're peaches and cream

Try your luck there, kid - Crown City!

Crown City! One heck of a diamond by the sea!
