Update: 540 total.
I said I would add the above buildings, but it seemed like a bit too much a task at the time.
So I laid out nearly 20 city blocks near the waterfront that were obliterated for the South Street Urban Renewal plan.
The photos are slightly dated, as you can see the old Seamens Church Institute layout in one photo.
Speaking of the old Seamens Church:
It was built in 1907 and demolished 1968-69.
I decided to count the annex as a separate structure in the total count of structures as it is noticably different from the original in color and design, and added much mass to the building.
(Good god the color difference, someone tell me that it was different colored brick they used, and New York wasn’t THAT polluted…)
I also added 3 tenements next to the building on the same block. I didn’t photograph them.
Anyway, other things;
Updated the World Building, and set it back from Park Row for accuracy
Also updated the West-Washington Gas station pavement and front area for accuracy
Tomorrow is my 15th birthday (convenient day as alot happened on August 5th in history, including the WTC groundbreaking in 1966, fire at 1 New York Plaza in 1970, death of Marilyn Monroe in 1962, etc). I won’t be taking the day off, though. I hope to get to about 550 buildings by the end of the day. One of those I hope to be 15 Moore Street, as I’m overly excited to build it.
Until next time…
