The all new and shiny, double primmed Bay City area is now open for avatar inspection. Quite a lot of visitors, but still a lot of empty spaces - as was to be expected, it's brand new after all.
Before visiting Second Life, I thought of it as a big city, an urban environment. Instead, it turned out to be much more park like, with lots of green, and open spaces. But now it looks like Bay City is intended to be the urban environment I once thought SL was.
