Windshield SurveyWhile driving through Sentinel City I noticed the most well-kept and newest looking buildings were located in Nightingale Square and Acer Tech Center. The housing includes condos and the streets and sidewalks appear cleaner than inthe rest of the city. In Acer Tech Center the buildings appear to be of similar age and style as Nightingale Square. The oldest and most run-down buildings are in Industrial Heights and Casper Park, where there are buildings with boarded-up or broken-out windows. There are a few trees planted randomly but even the playground doesn’t have any grass. The buildings were mostly attached to each other, with some courtyard areas between buildings where people sometimes gather. Sentinel City appears to be a typical city block layout, with transportation available by car, bus, bicycle or train. There are several places where people gathered and people were seen out jogging and bicycling. Due to the simulated nature of SentinelCity everything seemed to take place during the day. There are coffee and donut shops and small grocery stores as well as Jo’s Grocery and a downtown Bodega in Industrial Heights. There are several small Italian restaurants. The soup kitchen is next to the Interfaith church, located in Industrial Heights. 6
