Geography

The Stanton area most is flat. There are only few hills. Highest hills are the Green Hill (Weybirton) with 42 m, the Cathill (Bronzeville) with 37 m and Mellon Hill and Spruntly Hill (both in Meadows, both 36 m).

Stanton is bordered by the cities of Ann'harbor to the south, Old Trappard at the other side if the bay to the east and Warwick to the north-east on the other side of the river. In the west we have the more rurual counties of Westham and Aldergate on the flat land near the Carnaby River.

The boroughs Meadows and Bruchline both lay on an island between the Carnaby River and the Alder River, a branch of the Carnaby River. The borough Manheart - the center of the town, also lay on an island between Alder River and Falcon River. On the mainland are the three boruoghs of Bronzeville, Southside and Weybirton.

History

1610 a small vilage was founded at the eastern end of the Manheart Island. The importance of the place lay in his sheltered harbour. Around 1700 the village grow til the Brick Street - named after the wall from brick stones. Around the town meanwhile lay the towns of Bronzeville and Weybirton and some rurual villages like Perisher, Smithwick, Barnston, Sinclair, Hormans Forge, Alderbrook, Placton, Eppenham, Kenver, Perlinter, Poplar or Asperton - today all incorporated in the area of Stanton City.

As in the second half of the 19th century more and more people come to Stanton, for wide areas of rurual land are planed blocks, to build tenements. At different places, at different times and from diferent authorities street grids are created. The streets there are named with numbers - the rectangled running "avenues" sometimes have an individual names.

  • in Manheart = Streets from 1 to 100 running east to west, avenues have numbers too
  • in Southside = Streets from 1 to 100 South running east to west, avenues have names from A to Z with female prenomes
  • in Bruchlinie = Streets from 1 to 74 East, running east to west, avenues are named "row" and have numbers
  • in Bruchlinie and Meadows = Streets from 1 to 169 North, running southeast to northwest, avenues have individual names
  • in Meadows = Streets from 170 to 279 North, running south to north, avenues have indivdual names
  • in Bronzeville = Streets from 1 to 140 West, running southest to northwest, avenues are named after birds or trees or have indivdual names, streets 1 to 50 partly have irregular pattern.

If someone only says "34th Street" is meaned the street in Manheart. If you mean this street directly, you also can say "34th Street Central".

Bronzeville

Street-grids in Bronzeville County

Before the arriving of settlers, the Bronzeville area was temporal forests covering the hilly area between the Falcon River and the Alder River. The Eppenham Forest is the last remnant of these woods. Both the Alder River in the north and the Falcon River in the south, were situated next to broad stripes of wetland, bushland and grass. Highest point of the borough is Cathill with an elevation of 37 m.

In the formerly rural area of the county small villages such as Eppenham, Placton, Ottermarsh or Alderbrook were founded. In 1738 the township of Bronzeville was established. In Bronzeville many factories for metal-working were erected to service business in the city of Manheart, on the green meadows. In few years Bronzeville grew to a hightly industrial town comprised mainly of factories and working-class houses, often occupied by financial non-solvent families. During the surge in the use of railroads in the 1850ies Bronzeville was able to achieve 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. Some of these parks have survived to this day.

The first planned grid of streets was done on rural land in Bronzeville 1827. In the next few decades more grids of streets were layed out in Astera, New Astera, New Bronzeville and Eppenham. In 1864 the rest of the bourough was divided into planning blocks with the so called "great street grid" (see graphic) which included streets numbered from "50th Street West" to "142nd Street West".

(... more text ...)

Beginning in the 1870ies first elevated railways from Manheart reach the Bronzeville area and the dense urbanisation overflow the former rural nature. The great Eppenham Forest changed to a rectangular street-grid and Eppenham and the new founded Astera become towns of more than 200 000 inhabitants.

1898 the county of Bronzeville was merged together with other counties to the city of Stanton and since then Bronzeville is one ot the borough of Stanton.

After the consumption of Bronzeville into the city of Stanton in the year 1898, the former boundaries between the towns and villages of the county only had historical importance. Nevertheless, in the public there are old towns and neighborhoods to be known as important names and places..

Social Infrastructure

County tree planting programm of 2010: In 2011, in order to increase air quality and mitigate pollution, Bronzeville initiated a massive program to plant rows of trees whereever there was empty space.. In the eastern area of Eppenham, the county additionally constructed a municipal nursery. Private citizens or companies that plant an evergreen tree receive a bonus of 50 $, if the tree grows to at least 10 years old, and they shall get an additional 100 $, iff the tree is maintained until 25 years of age. Most trees are planted in rows at schools to educate children on the importance of responsible environment management.

Fire-brigades of Bronzeville

As in the other counties of Stanton-City, Bronzeville has a dense network of 22 fire-brigades. Brigades #1 and #20 are the main watchpoints for the southern and eastern areas, and the northern and western areas of Bronzeville, respectively. Often the fire department buildings also house local police stations
