Update 17 - Near East Side - Cramer Neighborhood

Now we move to the north side of the Brittany River, more specifically, the Near East Side, the area between Orchard Creek and Honey Creek north of downtown.  This update focuses on Cramer Neighborhood which lies between N Webster Ave, E North Ave, N Prospect Ave, and E Sherman Ave.  The neighborhood is home to low-wealth residents and has two schools (Cramer School - Martin Public Schools [MPS] and St. Mary's Catholic School)

TEASER: Ivanhoe Terraces

Thanks for visiting Cramer Neighborhood.  The next update will continue our little picture tour of the Near East Side (now that I think about it, my map calls this area the Lower East Side).  We will move north of E Sherman Ave.  Based on the teaser I chose I will focus on the Ivanhoe Terraces neighborhood west of N Webster Ave.  Hopefully my city building is not boring and uninteresting.  I am aiming for realism, and real cities can be a little repetitive.  That is one reason I am focusing heavily on naming neighborhoods, schools, churches, etc, to give the "monotony" some life :)  Tell me what you think!
