Murphy in what looks like to be a mellow suburban home:
It's like a Tim Burton nightmare:
A gas station at... the edge of a cliff!?
A lonely alleyway:
Murphy in "Silent Rain"
Murphy walking down a lonely neighborhood:
Murphy next to a vintage coffee machine in what looks to be an abandoned subway
You can see more over at Silent Hill Lost Memories. 
I just love how much detail there are in the environments, with random cardboard boxes, crates, cigs and garbage thrown about. I'm also totally digging how Murphy's outfits gets wet in water (which needs to happen in more games). I know I'll be exploring every nook and cranny and taking a stop every once in a while and appreciating the town's sentimental charm.
