San Lorenzo, the other foggy city

So..... I've done more alterations to San Lorenzo. I just felt like the city wasn't..... Western enough. San Lorenzo is a west-coast city, but I've always designed it like it was an Industrial East-coast port. Well, I have to balance it out. A lot of inspiration for the city comes from San Francisco, even though New Loretians don't like Californians. :P

The big modern structure at the top of the picture below is the Naval Museum. I also moved the arena and in it's place put a lovely little park, since I realized the central part of San Lorenzo did not have a park!! :dead:

Like San Francisco, San Lorenzo encounters heavy fog in the sky, caused by the lateral transfer of temperature by wind blowing over cooler water. (Yes, I copied that part from Wikipedia :P). This type of fog occurs in coastal Mediterranean climates like that in California and New Loreto. It usually happens either early in the morning or later in the evening.

escilnavia: I did get inspired to do the Little Italy part from New York, and I suppose the New York-style w2w buildings give off that look too.
Zulu2065: Thanks!! San Lorenzo does have culture, it just tends to be all concealed by huge fast food corporation advertisements. :P
sneakeypete: Thanks!!
