Ash City- A city to remember
Welcome back- in this edition we'll show you some parts of the city- some are hidden treasures, others are well visible. We'll see many of the sites of the city, and an oddly placed residential zone that backs against the airport.
The Bus Terminal- Built in 1989, the bus terminal is a hub of activity. Beautifully designed inside and out, it features large windows that are great for viewing the city's mountains. Many tourists come through here. Depending on how far you've come, its not a cheap ride.
2 historic structures- located near the stadium and city hall, these structures were part of the city rebuild as mentioned last time- The telephone building- built in 1899, it was designed by Frank Marshall. Next door is the old Gruberton Hotel- built in 1889 it was designed by Bobby Troyal Mills and features an impressive interior. Its interior is all original and features a marble fountain as a center piece.
A residential area backed against the airport- an odd location it overlooks the man made Bowerly Lake. Even with its odd location against the runways it is still one of the most popular areas to live in the city.
Horchester Interchange- Completed in 1988 it bridges 3 highways- 2 don't connect to each other, but all 3 connect to the main highway through town heading east to west- an odd layout, its a frequent hub of activity in this majestic city.
Downtown- simple designs make up this area of town. The reason? Its believed that if a building is too fancy, it'll take away from the surrounding mountains, thus the city chose to use a more simplistic style for its downtown. A pine tree lined street makes up the northern artery, while here a simple design makes up the south route. Many office buildings line this beautiful location, and apartments in sky-rises are at a premium. Average rent- $4500/mo for a 2 bedroom.
Thats a look at the majestic Ash City- enjoy the stay.
