.. beauty of a building ..

It is not the beauty of a building you should look at;
its the construction of the foundation that will stand
the test of time.                             ~ David Allan Coe

Sometimes you find a great outfit in Second Life that you wan”Shirley” dress by !gO! at the Shiny Shabby round that opened today.  I generally love Gocha Merlin’s creations and this dress is no exception. It has an 1920’s vibe and the fit for my Maitreya body worked perfectly.  The texture is great and the bow is just perfect.

I decided it would be a great item to blog so I had to think of a good location.  I remembered that I had recently seen  that Jogi Schultz of Schultz Bros. had been building a early 20th century New York City for roleplay – and off I headed to the 1920’s New York Project.  Based upon the website, I knew that the project had recently been moved over to a full sim so I wanted to check it out.  The build is looking great even though it is still ‘in progress’.  It is definitely a scene that lends to an active role play story and adventure.

Initially you land in a train or subway station which looks great and provides the necessary information. As you ascent up the stairs, you will see a ticket booth attendant patiently ready to serve.  You then have the choice to teleport down to the project.  The build has an elevated railway, some great shops that are perfect for the era, a night club, coffee houses, cafes and a ballroom.  There is a waterfront with a park where you can just relax and visit with a passerby.  The textures are realistic and the architecture is quite true to life as well.

If you choose to visit, please note that you do have to be dressed appropriately for the era and if you haven’t had a chance to pick up this awesome dress by !gO!, you will find freebies at the entry point.
