The Mercer Inlet

Sign in to follow this  


This is an update about the Mercer Inlet, a little body of water that makes up the area where most of San Lorenzo's seaports and various nautical things are associated.


Below, you can see a mosaic with Chinatown at the top, and showing the industrial area along the inlet and even a small glimpse of the international airport on the other side of the water. This area used to be very dirty and undesirable, but urban gentrification brought on by high-tech industries is slowly making the area livable, and also quite expensive.


On the other side, by the airport, is a Naval submarine base. Although not nearly as useful as the much larger naval base in Redwood, this place still serves as a reminder of the past. San Lorenzo was once a major Pacific port for building ships during World War II.


There's also another nearby naval station, located in close proximity with the city's cable-stayed Mercer Bridge.


Farther east along the Mercer Inlet are quiet suburbs with desirable waterfront property. Many of the neighborhoods along the waterfront are located near high-tech industrial areas, which has made real estate prices skyrocket.


Thanks to the city's strict environmental codes put in place in the mid 1970s, the water quality in the inlet has drastically improved, and people can enjoy swimming there in the Summer.


Last, but not least, a mosaic of the port and nearby city. Unfortunately it looks like it's going to start raining!


Thanks for reading! :thumb:
