A few readers have requested a tour through East Port, and I have not forgotten. Please enjoy!
East Port is located to the north-east of Balboa City, and due east from Taraville. It has about 410,000 residents.
For full resolution on all pics: Right click image + "View image." Very worth it!!
See how many of the landmarks in this post your can spot in this city-wide view!
City Hall was built in the 1950s, before downtown was very large at all.
The heart of downtown East Port. The city has a strong automobile culture, though the city's first elevated rail line--built in the 1950s--passes through in this photo. The sports arena is also shown.
A second elevated rail line--as well as a few subway lines--were built between 1978-1985. This particular station was built in 1981 and renovated in 1998.
A good school, though the trams can get a bit noisy. These trains cross the river underground and travel to either Mario City or Hilltop.
The tram plaza helped congestion in this intersection. The original line was built in 1923.
An automobile culture meets professional football and soccer. East Port's largest venue is also Balboa's largest football/soccer stadium and hosts the Syldav Island-wide championships each year. Nevertheless, the expansive parking lots are the constant talk of redesign, due to the amount of land they consume. Check back to the first picture to see how much space it really takes up!
The East Port College for the Industrial Trades is a respected business and industrial university.
Right across the lake from the University are the fair grounds.
Mario City, located across the river, leased this former waste dump and turned it into a world-class sports facility.
Hope you all enjoyed the update!
