At the crossing lies the great University. The North end is capped by the Parliament , the South by the Ministry of Beautification, the East by City Hall, and the West by The Statue of Liberty and the bay. I was tired of looking at a giant grid of high density commercial and residential blocks, so with over 2,000,000 residents in the city I demolished everything south of the University. I experimented with diagonal avenues and had a lot of fun connecting them with roundabouts. It was especially convenient that the Grand Opera House fit perfectly at a diagonal cross hairs (photo). I centered the rest of the official government buildings along the West Branch of the Axis (photo). Unfortunately the photos show the city being well developed after such changes were made but these are the best photos I have of this Phase.

These are two photos of the city before my extensive re-planning. All of the city's entertainment and government was centered in one place and it just made the rest of the city rather drab.
