East Tenne: Transit Enabled
Schulmania's newest and largest city is accessible by road from the east and south and by ferry down the Wirdle River to the Tenne Sea. In the town proper, extensive road networks and the highest concentration of bridges in the nation allow for easy transit to both halves of the town and throughout the more than twenty neighborhood districts.
Let's start today's journey in the 14th Arrondissement, on the northwest side of town. The Chateau Tireur de Beurre is the tallest residential building in town. The Supreme Wirdle has a penthouse suite here for when she comes to visit.
As we travel across the town, we will see large blocks of residential and commercial as well as government buildings. From our current position, we can explore a great amount of the city before arriving at the capital. One may note the extensive use of the Capitoline style of architecture, featuring classical styling and often ornate, articulated rooflines. Extensive use of chimneys is common in this style which is becoming exceedingly popular in Tenne since its large scale introduction in Knoxvegas.
Ornate rooflines are commonplace in this scene from the 4th Arrondissement.
And plenty of chimneys are visible on many buildings, including these in the north central part of town.
Note the distinctive green roof of Roane-Anderson College. It is one of four institutions of post-secondary education in the city.
Extensive commerce and retail keep Roane-Anderson's economy humming. From the corner Leech Apothecary to the boutiques of Ferry's Wooden Shoe Emporium to the regional offices of VAN Enterprises, the range of employment and commerce options is quite broad.
This city is every bit as densely populated as Knoxvegas. But, at more than twice the land area, this will be the largest city to date in Schulmania.
The mid-rise density is consistent across town. Here, a view of the 18th arrondissement.
In the evening, citizens enjoy a variety of dining and entertainment options. The corner Tuna Theater is quite popular. Today's holiday performance is by Metallicat.
So, how do we get to travel so quickly around town, especially across the river? There are three bridges and two ferry ports in town. Crossing a river will never be a problem in Roane-Anderson.
Bridge 1: The Roane Bridge
Bridge 2: The Anderson Bridge
Ships cross the river and travel to the sea frequently.
Unfortunately, these boats behind the Bureau of Feline Affairs Building don't travel across town. But if you want to catch some fish, feel free to borrow one.
Hungry yet? Why not stop by Tweety's Cat Café? You can get a bucket of tweeties for only 19 purrs. Sylvester can be found eating here almost daily.
In the 17th arrondissement, a church stands as the centerpiece. The second largest church in town is the Our Lady of Meerclar. This landmark is one of the largest structures in the mostly residential southwestern quadrant of Roane-Anderson.
The bell tower.
The church and its context in the XVIIe Arrondissement.
On our way back to the Supreme Wirdle's penthouse, we will stop by City Hall. There's a gala party going on to celebrate the holiday. Happy Schulman Day, everyone!
