1920's New York Project , Prescott - Second Life

Pearl Street, Second Life, compare with 1920s picture below
The 1920s Berlin Project is probably one of the most well known sims in second Life even having it's own page on wikipedia, however there are other, less well known historical sims that are also worthy of exploration, the latest of which is the 1920's New York Project, which is intended to be a faithful reconstruction of a section of lower Manhattan around 1926

The plan is to replicate Lower Manhatten in the 1920s, speakeasies,  street cars,subway, elevated train line and all is the brainchild of 3D designer, Jogi Schultz. Although far from completed the work so far is very impressive and shops and apartments are already occupied.
