NEW YORK CITY

The Streets of NYC
175 posts in 11 threads
New York is a massive urban jungle of vast buildings, mobbed streets filled with taxi cabs and cars going to and fro in numerous directions and the scent of exhaust surfing through the air.


The constant commotion of conversing voices rage up and down the streets that lead to many places to explore. This board is for all threads that aren't found in one of the other areas.
Business Venues

New York City is renowned around the world for its diversity in food, culture, shopping, and recreation. But what truly makes it a standout city are the small businesses that bring its innovative and entrepreneurial spirit to life.

Everything from old bookstores to the Idle Hands Tattoo parlor, Enchantments occult store and Armstrong Motors are located under this category.

Universities
76 posts in 5 threads
A modern testament to education, New York City has some of the most prestigious schools in the country. [The center of NYU is its Washington Square campus in the heart of Greenwich Village. One of the city's most creative and active communities, the Village is a historic neighborhood that has attracted generations of writers, musicians, artists, and intellectuals.

NYU, in keeping with its founder’s vision, is “in and of the city”: the University – which has no walls and no gates – is deeply intertwined with New York City, drawing inspiration from its vitality.

Central Park
261 posts in 9 threads
Central Park is one of those places that make New York such a great place to live. The vast park, 341 hectares large (843 acres), is located in the center of Manhattan. Its design has served as an example for city parks around the world.

The park boasts several lakes, theaters, ice rinks, fountains, tennis courts, baseball fields, many playgrounds and other facilities. It is also home to the Central Park Zoo and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Especially during the weekends, when cars are not allowed into the park, Central Park is a welcome oasis in this hectic city.

In New York City, you’re never more than a block away from a Starbucks; they are as bountiful as pigeons in this city. But, if you’re willing to look, there are also loads of independent cafes out there — warm, cozy spaces that smell like heaven and are extra-special because they belong to you and you alone (or at least they feel like they do).

North Brother Island
8 posts in 2 threads
North Brother Island is New York's miniature Detroit, without the industry- a 20 acre, un-High Line-ed wilderness of trees, vines and abandoned, crumbling buildings in the treacherous tidal strait where the waters of New York Harbor trade places with those of Long Island Sound. It has been uninhabited for 50 years and off limits to all but biologists for more than a decade, the city manages it as a nature preserve.

THE NEVER-NEVER

Hex & The City
11 posts in 1 thread
The ancient occult shop that is often found in dingy alleyways, and can never be found again. Only those touched by magick can find it, and it is never in the same location twice. Anything can be found here, but you may not like the price.

Past the dusty rows of ancient books, the Hex appears to be modeled as a modern European bar. At the counter, it is lavishly decorated in a Grecian/Roman design. It consists of several shelves stocked with fine wine and alcohol. In the center is a beautiful stained glass centerpiece with a circular design that shines as if lit by sunlight.

The Hex serves as a Waystation into the Never-Never, and is a safe alternative to entering any of the supernatural dimensions.

The Goblin Market
21 posts in 1 thread
The Goblin Market is a veritable bacchanalia of mythological, fantasy, and supernatural creatures from all over the world and from multiple cultures. As its name implies, it is a marketplace of significant magnitude, containing hundreds of booths and shopping centers for the strange and fantastic beings of the world.

Many different items and goods can be purchased there, be they food, clothing, items, and more. It is built both out of unique structures and cannibalized pieces of the New York sewer system; many pipes can be seen lining it along its outer walls. Like most marketplaces, it is a place of extreme activity, with pedestrian-choked roadways and narrow streets.

The Further
12 posts in 1 thread
The Further is the part of the Underworld closest to that lands of the living. It is a mirror "skin" of reality, with every location in the breathing realm having a corresponding location in the Further which, for the most part, obey conventional rules of distance.

The Further is uniformly described as "gloomy"; colors are muted, light is dimmed, the air is chill and life is dark and gray. Buildings in the Further are often exaggerations or warpings of their counterparts. An abandoned house may look relatively up to date (reflecting the memories of its original appearance) or look considerably more decrepit and decayed.

Faerieland
0 posts in 0 threads
The Faerie is the realm of the spirit and is the part that is closest to the mortal world. Therefore has links to and resembles the real world a lot in that it is somewhat permanent and unchanging and has several versions of weather.

However, the rules of reality do not apply so strongly or in the same way there. It can be very treacherous—most who go, never come back.

Faeries of all makes and kinds live here and are governed by the Faerie Courts, Winter and Summer with each of the courts holding their distinct territory. Each territory is permanently in its corresponding season. The majority of Faerie, however, is Wyld, or a no-man's-land.
