Stanton is the largest city in the state of New Carnaby and in the Federal States. The city's population is 8,501,861, and its total area is 524.38 square miles, 86% of it land.


Geography

Stanton is generally flat. The highest hills are Green Hill (Weybirton) at 138 feet, Cat Hill (Bronzeville) at 121 feet, and Mellon Hill and Spruntly Hill (Meadows) at 118 feet each.

By land, Stanton is bordered by Belleville to the southeast, Aldergate County to the south, and Westham County to the west, It also borders Warwick, Penquisset across the Carnaby River to the northeast and Old Trappard, Delenshire Islands across the bay to the east. .

The city is divided into six boroughs. Meadows and Bruchline both lay on an island between the Carnaby and Alder rivers. Manheart, the city center of Stanton, lays on an island between the Alder and Falcon rivers. Bronzeville, Southside and Weybirton lie on the mainland.

History

In 1610, a small vilage was founded at the eastern end of the Manheart Island. The importance of the site lay in its sheltered harbour. (more will follow)

Around 1700, Manheart expanded to the Brick Street, named after its wall of brick stones. Meanwhile, the then-separate towns of Bronzeville and Weybirton grew separately, as well as smaller rural communities such as Perisher, Smithwick, and Barnston. Today, these are all suburbs of Stanton. (more will follow)

Grid System

With the first half of the 19th century came a population boom. This is the period in which the most landmasses were cleared out in order to make room for more urban development, in which a pragmatic system of street grids were created at different times, and from different authorities. Parallel paths running close to one another were designated as streets, while parallel paths further apart were designated as avenues. Roads not following the grid system are often called "ways" or "alleys".

  • in Manheart, streets are numbered 1 to 100 and run southwest-northeast. Avenues are numbered 1 to 13.
  • in Southside, streets are numbered 1 to 100 with the suffix "South" and run southwest-northeast. avenues are lettered A to V with the names of females.
  • Bruchlinie is divided into two distinct street grids. In one, streets are numbered 1 to 75 with the suffix "West" and generally run east-west. Avenues are designated as "rows" and are numbered from 1 to 29, after which they become the names of countries. In the other, streets are numbered 1 to 132 to the suffix "North" and run southwest-northeast. Avenues have individual names.
  • in Meadows, streets are numbered 133 to 279 with the suffix "North" and run southwest-northeast (133-169) and northwest-southeast (170-279). Avenues have indivdual names.
  • in Bronzeville, streets are either numbered 1 to 43 with the suffix "North" or 1 to 142 with the suffix West. Streets run in all directions. Avenues have indivdual names.

Infrastructure

Airports

Today Stanton has two airports:

The first airfield in Tosterglope, used until 1928, has been changed to a park with a museum for aircraft pioneers. Another former airfield lies near Hunters Hide in Bruchlinie.

Streets

Stanton is bypassed by the New Carnaby state routes 1, 4-29, and 41 and the motorways FS-1, 11, 13, 20, and 22.

Rails

Stanton has one of the most expansive subway systems in the world, with 24 lines spanning a length of 900 kilometers. Details in Stanton Subway.

North and northwest-bound train lines terminate at the Union Station, and south and west-bound lines terminate at the Southern Station (southern division). For thrugoing trains, connections between both stations are in use. Bronzeville, Astera, Southcross or Trucenton also contain smaller stations. Alongside the passenger tracks, additional tracks for freight trains are in use. The main operator for destinations in the west and south of New Carnaby is the New Carnaby Metronome Railway.

From both railway-stations, a net of commuter-lines have spread out to the outer parts of the cities and counties in the vicinity, or to the state of Penquisset. For details, see Stanton Northern Commuter and Stanton Southern Link. The SWC (Stanton Warwick Connector) is an independent commuter line.

Stanton's first railway line opened in 1839 and ran from Pitcher Street in Southside via Ann'harbor Way to the port of Belleville. Subway line 5 now runs the same course.

Bronzeville

Street-grids in Bronzeville County

Before the arriving of settlers, the land was mostly flat woods, the Eppenham Forest being the last remnant of this. Both the Alder River in the north and the Falcon River in the south are situated in the middle of broad strips of wetland, bushland and grass. The highest point of the borough is Cat Hill, with an elevation of 121 feet.

In the formerly rural area of the county, small villages such as Eppenham, Placton, Ottermarsh and Alderbrook were founded. In 1738, the township of Bronzeville was established, where many factories for metal-working were erected to serve business in the city of Manheart. In just a few years, Bronzeville grew to be a thriving industrial town comprised mostly of factories and working-class families. Poverty was relatively high. During the surge of railroads in the 1850s, Bronzeville was able to achieve pass many important industrial landmarks.

Meanwhile, along the rivers and in the hills, the upper-class of Manheart built summer houses, villas and great private parks in Bronzeville. Some of these parks have survived to this day.

Bronzeville's first planned grid of streets was formed in 1827. Over the next few decades, these grids expanded to Astera, New Astera, New Bronzeville and Eppenham. In 1864 the rest of the borough was divided into planning blocks under the "great street grid" (see graphic).

(... more text ...)

Beginning in the 1870s, the first elevated railways from Manheart reached the Bronzeville area, and dense urbanization overwhelmed the formerly sparse nature. Much of Eppenham Forest turned into a subdivision, and Eppenham and the newly founded Astera became suburbs with more than 200,000 inhabitants.

In 1898, the county of Bronzeville was merged with other counties to form the city of Stanton.

  • Produce Terminal Market North (New Astera)
  • Bronze Brew (New Bronzeville)
  • Haustin Metal Works (Bronzeville)
  • Mechtersen Kitchen Steel (Bronzeville)
  • Fletcher, Guardini and Rosenbaum (Bronzeville)
  • Nursery Dehonour (Flatland Bow)
  • Crygger Cast Iron Ornaments (near Ortolan Square)


Social Infrastructure

In 2011, in order to increase air quality and mitigate pollution, Bronzeville initiated a borough-wide program to plant rows of trees wherever there was empty space. The county also constructed a municipal plant nursery in eastern Eppenham. Citizens or private entities that planted an evergreen tree received a bonus of $50; if the tree grows to at least 25 years old, the number will increase to $100. Most trees are planted in rows at schools to remind children of the importance of responsible environment management.

Fire-brigades of Bronzeville

Bronzeville has a dense network of 22 fire-brigades. Brigade #1 is the main watchpoint for southern and eastern areas of Bronzeville, and briggade #20 for the northern and western areas. The fire department buildings often also house local police stations.
