The overall layout of Industriatown is pretty simple, residents on one side, commercial surrounding them, industry on the other side. Pollution is high, traffic horrendous.


Main Street -- linking the neighborhoods with the industrial district.


See the City Hall, both the old small one and the newer medium one. See the drastically under-funded and under-utilized museum. What's in it? Nobody knows, because half the population can't read the display signs. All we know is that there are some dead things in it.Doesn't really draw the folks in. See the courthouse, where families listen to their loved one's sentence. See the McDonalds and Old Joe's Drive-in Theater -- both far more popular than the museum.

Central Park


Central Park is located right next to Main Street, with some of the only green space in town. Want to play some soccer or baseball? Want to stroll under the trees? Sorry, this is the only place to do it. Maybe one day they'll get a concert park to host their favourite bands. Or, maybe not.

The Docks


The heavy levels of industry required a dock. The old dock (on the right) filled up quickly, so the new dock (left) was added. Currently the freight seems to prefer the new dock to the old. The ferry goes to Middleton, a nearby middle-class suburb. (More on that later.)

Four Farm Square


When Industriatown first started out, the first residents from nearby Sandbox wanted to recreate their agricultural paradise. So, four farms were planted with some low-density housing in the centre. Now this is the only remaining low-density housing in the city, excepting the lighthouse area. The farms, once vibrant and productive, suffered a big hit when some powerlines were lost in construction and are now derilict.

Newtown East


Recently some new developments have sprung up to the south of the original neighbourhood, Newtown East and Newtown West. These are apparently very attractive to middle-class and wealthy residents, possibly because of the walkway between the buildings, and has attracted a significant number of them. Hopefully this will serve to move them out of the city centre to make room for more ghetto. Pictured is Newtown East, mostly because I like the dual Copur Apartments on the end. Newtown West is very similar.

Edited, like the others, to shrink the pics.
