The City of Wescester

Wescester is the new project I have been working on!

So today, I'd Like to show you the area of Near East Side. This neighborhood is located directly east of Downtown and is centrally located within the city limits. Near East Side is notorious for its odd-angled streets as it is located by a bend in the Susquehanna River.

Let's start off with an overview of Wescester's Road Map, highlighting Near East Side.

Next up is the sleepy neighborhood near Sheriden Park, a simple track and field.

*(Note that most N/S streets in central Wescester are tree names)

Near Sheriden Park is Central High School, the original public High School in Wescester, but now it is one of three in the City.

Just west of Central High is the north end of Susquehanna Univerisity's Main Campus.

The Center of Campus is wedged between Park Avenue and Chestnut Street.

An old Church near campus:

Brandon Park is the old city commons.

The odd street layout in this part of town make for a lot of multi-way intersections called squares.

Susquehanna Square is home to Wescester's tallest building, Grit Tower, the headquarters of the nationwide newspaper Grit. It marks the border between downtown and Near East Side. Susquehanna Square is also synonymous with the theatre district, though it is truly located in the blocks to the west of the square. Washington Boulevard, a major artery into the lower east of the city, also begins here.

This is Washington Square, the traditional East Edge of the Central Commercial District

Penn Square is located several blocks northeast of Washington Square and, along with Wilshire Square is an outlying business district. It is home to the Regional CocaCola HQ as well as some shopping and lofts.
