Towers Of Despair

REPLIES

Jacob Guajardo-Thank you for commenting so often!

Dubaidude303-Thank You!

Today we will be exploring the not so nice side of north city. Filled with prostitutes,drug dealers,gang members and the occasional politician;this part of the city is bursting at the seams,filled with more people than the government ever thought possible in the 1940s, 50s, and 60s.

NewLondon-Aug26361358555033-1.jpg?t=1358889200

Named for the mayor at the time(Ts'ami Akin)These blocks,built from 1952-1955 are

generally agreed to be the best off of all the projects. They

are filled with mainly the working

poor,however they

still have a very crime rate.

NewLondon-Jun23361358554863-1.jpg?t=1358890051

Named for President Hamar Kw'esa-nuar (1897-1949) these communist style blocks were built in a frenzy, to house thousands

of immigrants coming from foreign nations as well as the countryside. They have always been over capacity, however the age of these

towers makes them almost a hazard to live in. They are scheduled for demolition in 2022.

NewLondon-Jun20361358554845-1.jpg?t=1358891951

"A sea of endless gray, from the ground to the horizon, nothing but a row of towers, stretching as far as the eye can see" (Dane Dragan,Poet 1865-1975)

Named for Dictator Nuwasi Kemae Ha-Kywate'li Juanes (Ruled 1957-1983) these blocks were built as a testament to the power of

his dictatorship. Today however, they are all one heavy gust of wind away from destruction.

NewLondon-Sep2361358890232-1.jpg?t=1358892891

And finally Ansa Projects. Named for civil rights leader He'shaiek Ye-Ramasai Dwekaine Hampar'kwasznatal D.Nuane R.S.K Huave Ansa,these

projects are mostly abandoned.They are known around the nation as a symbol of urban decay, but are

expected to be demolished around 2015 (money permitting).

Below is an overview of the nation.

And now on to the city at night.

SunshineEstates-Nov13441357939637-Copy-1-1.jpg?t=1358019365

This district is called the arts district because it used to be home to many art galleries,coffee shops,artists,hippies,writers....

This all changed with the arrival of multinational corporations and yuppies in the late 90s'

SunshineEstates-Mar30451357939868-1.jpg?t=1358020300

In the late 60s' and early 70s' thousands of people immigrated from their small rural villages to the capital. In response to this population

explosion the local government built hundreds of commieblocks to house the newcomers. Today most of them have been demolished,however

these remain.

SunshineEstates-Mar26451357939825-1.jpg?t=1358020664

This bridge was built in 1992 to bridge(haha,get it?) downtown with one of the two peninsulas after the old bridge collapsed. It

is the busiest bridge in the nation.

SunshineEstates-Nov8441357939610-1-1.jpg?t=1358021012

This is downtown as of 2012. As you can see numerous new towers have gone up

since last time, making this northern coastal city an even more spectacular place to live.

Thanks for Viewing!
