After posting the poll question about East Port's nuke plants, I realized that I haven't shown much from the big city to the east in a while. It's suburb, Mario City, has taken much of the lime light. So I thought I'd share some more photos.
By the way, November has been my busiest month, with this being the 7th update so far (making 1 every 3 days!). I've just been excited; what can I say?
Anyway, on to the photos!The football statidum is still here, though with much more development around it. And more tram service!
Downtown has developed a lot in the past years. Shildav Arena was built in 1990 to house the City's basketball and hokey teams.

You may have remembered East Port's City Hall from the 1950s--it's grandeur was hardly matched by the modest downtown.
Well, today a large & modern downtown has grown up around City Hall:
Old (1960s) tram stop, new (1993) tower.
The East Port "Playgrounds," a modest yet loved attraction.
New transit layouts had to be built around this historic church on 51st Street.
And then, there is this. Formerly the site of oil power plants, this corner of East Port has remained barren since the 1960s. A port was was built in 1968 but failed to make this hole an attractive place for anyone to go.
In the ongoing deliberations on the nuclear power plants, the local government stressed that those funds would be better spent to revitalize this wasteland. How? Give me some ideas. Remember, it's not near much anything at all.
That's all for now!
Oh, you can still place your vote on the East Port Nuke issue. Time isn't out yet!
