Where am I?

Using the following clues (the map above is purely decorative) in combination with Street View, work out my location.

Although Roman, THC’s chief puzzlewright, would be interested to know how long it takes you to solve this solo foxer, he’d rather you didn’t put spoilers or solutions in the comments.

Today you’ll find me a stone’s throw from a restaurant that specialises in the cuisine of a particular Caribbean country. I’m in a US state with two Democratic senators, a plough on its flag, and a state capital named after an Englishman. Three kilometres from the nearest state line, 380 metres from a colourful tied arch bridge, and 750 metres from an elevated metro station that shares a name with a British county and a British car, I’m roughly the same distance from the nearest laundromat as I am from the nearest church. The closest Interstate junction is a five minute drive away. The sizeable city I’m in has a groundbreaking mayor, and photos of a paifang, and a surprisingly symmetrical 17th Century map on its Wikipedia page.

You are probably in the right place if you can see…
