Metropolitan Area of Delaware
DELAWARE is the capital city of New Ablana, with the estimated population of 1.4 million people (326,000 live within City Centre area). Metropolitan Area of Delaware is known as most culturally-diverse city, with high immigrant population; the city share its passion on culture, living, society and art. Delaware City Centre area is home to over ten landmarks, including Delaware Cathedral, Sciencentre and the Monument. Most of the landmarks are located within Old Delaware area, because Old Delaware was the former site for the Delaware City Centre, (until when relocated to current location in 1949). Within the City Centre area, there are five local councils that manage its districts and areas, one of them is City of Delaware which it manages Downtown, Strahan, Monument and King's Cross. One of the local council, City of Chelsea, it is most popular district to live in (Living in Delaware: Best District to Live in 2009, 2010 and 2011 awards). In City of Chelsea, you can find the beautiful parks, with large landmarks, old row homes, old museums and wide roads with shops along its sidewalks. Despite of its horrible traffic problems around the city centre, Delaware is still the beautiful city, with so many old buildings found, literally, everywhere. In any chance if you are going to Old Delaware, you can find so many cobblestone roads around the district, including the gigantic Delaware Cathedral (built in 1604), and street-trees being found on every street sidewalks. Thankfully for its "super" slow population growth, Delaware is one of the best planned city in New Albana.

A sleepy downtown with few highrises; the City of Delaware have no plans to build another tower. Most of the buildings you see above is built between founding of new downtown in 1949 to 1969. Newest building is the AP Delaware tower (Water Inc Tower).

BEAUTIFUL River Tyne drifts through Delaware and its many bridges over it. Most of these bridges you see above is built between 1775-1875.
William Street Tower was the tallest building in Delaware until MacGregor Tower built that dominated Delaware skyline. Way back in the time, before when Delaware downtown began to grow up, this tower, William Street Tower was the "landmark of the modern world".
A modern Convention and Exhibition Centre, located at Waterfront. Delaware Convention Centre is able to fit up to 6,600 guests and it is a popular option for high school homecoming dances, or city meetings, or general international conference events.

Fitzroy Park with small road bridge over the small lake. Fitzroy Park is the important park in Delaware, because this small lake is the Wishing Well, where all of people who wanted to wish something, can put anything into the lake. City of Delaware (and City of Chelsea) have invested together to save the lake (and its things on the bottom of lake) from being robbed by thieves and criminals.
In 1993 when the old and well-known old building collapsed and Old Delaware district council quickly replaced it with a semi-modern apartment building with EXACT same brick (from the collapsed building) for the walls at the ground floor of the apartment tower.
