Where is Latitude 60° 00' 00"N and Longitude 60° 00' 00" E ?

Dear people of The Confluence Project:
Now the reason for this note, I believe it would be fun to show off some of your work within these episodes.
Why not create a tourist destination at 60/60 and name the town accordingly? Everything in this new town, 60/60, could be driven by year-round education and tourism by everyone in the world who is turning 60 on a given day. Invite them to come and I bet 10% of them might. Given the world's population is about 7 Billion people with an odd-shaped bell curve heavy on the left, I would still imagine that there are about 50 million 60 year-old people living. If 600,000 each year came to 60/60, it would be a major tourist destination and would change the entire economy of the area.
What would it be like to stand in the 60/60 center spot as everyone around sings "Happy Birthday to you"? Let's bring in the composers and choral groups and let's have the widest possible variety of birthday songs. These could become transformative places on earth..
It'll be interesting to see if towns emerge that bring these numbers alive. Thanks.
PS. If you act on this letter, please let us know, so we can report your progress!
