Microcity Addition 1
Welcome back to my microcity! This is addition number 1! That means more new buildings and structures!
About this creation
Ahh.... Nothing better than a good aerial shot of the city with paved roads.

Welcome back to my microcity! Before I start, I must apologize for my bad photography. Better pictures are coming very soon, along with a Bricklink order to add some roads and updates to buildings. The first building in this addition is the GlassCo, Inc. They have the world's largest revolving door at 45 feet high. (It also is noticeably missing a large, 3rd story window, which will be replaced as soon as my Bricklink order arrives)

This is the headquarters of T.Y.N.Y. Inc. That stands for Tyblo's Yucca Newt Yodeling. This is quite an odd building, as they train newts from yucca trees to somehow yodel to off-tune songs.

The Stadium. This is one of the largest stadiums in the city, and is home to many sporting events including the 2009 MOColympics. This mammoth was also home to the 2008 MOCie Awards.

The Section 1 Beach Hospital. This was built by construction workers in triple overtime, due to the massive amount of food poisoning from the Stadium Food Court's Sporttime Special.

The RedLev Resort. It was named so because it appears to almost levitate, only held up by a scrawny trans-red elevator shaft. It is one of the coolest, most futuristic hotels around, though, and is immune to most strong earthquakes.

The building next to it with the diamond: The Zirconium Jewelry Shop. People somehow believe that they can buy the massive diamond on top and they want to, until they find out from the other customers that everything they sell is tacky overpriced cubic zirconium.

The Low Go Restaurant. Despite the looks on the outside, it is quite the fancy, colorful restaurant. The reason for the black paint is to keep their heating bill low.

The bulky parking garage, rising 3 stories above the ground. This is the only parking garage in Section 1 AND 2, which means you're very lucky to find an empty parking spot. Can anyone guess what this building is? Yep, it's the horrific Junior High. Most students just call it that because in Gym class, they teach people how to bungee-jump off the roof. They all say it's the best part of school, much better than "Study" Hour.

The Community Aquarium. One of the best aquariums in the city, and rated #21 in the world. Unlike most aquariums, it goes up rather than out.

The Sandy Playhouse. This place is a 10,000 square foot party area for kids, including a small splash pool, a sand room, a couple bowling lanes and a candy counter.

The Treetop Hotel. This has nothing to do with trees, it's just painted green and has a pointed roof. People on the third story and below, beware. The parking garage is a very ugly view through the window.

The Chrome Place. This is a building designed for people who love the shiny hue of chrome. Little do they realize that this building is metallic silver, not chrome.


The Honeybee Museum. This is dedicated to the famous Shannon Young, who is one of the most popular legends in the city. They say he gave the mayor all the ideas for the architecture of the city, which is undoubtedly true.


The Lime Mime. This restaurant is known throughout the city for it's sour food. Anything not sour is dyed green with food coloring. On Friday nights, they hire a mime to paint himself green and perform. It takes an extra 10% tip, but it's worth it.

Guess what this building is? Yep, the Junior High. The students only call it that because the Gym teacher lets them bungee-jump off the roof. They say it's the best part all day, especially better than "Study" Hour.

And for the fans who happen to be very anxious for the next update: Here is a bird's eye view of the city in its next expansion:


Thanks for visiting!

I can see by the pictures at the top of the page that you finally got your roads. Good for you. This city is looking better than ever! I just finished reading your entire home page. My favorite part. "Thomas N, I thought he was an AFOL for months!" Thanks for the compliment. What made you think I was an AFOL though?

You do have some neat buildings in your microcity and that's some good advice from Thomas. It's hard takin' pictures, many of mine are not as good as I would like either. More light is also a good thing. see ya. garth

Well, it is now time for another update in the city, coming as soon as I have time to upload it. Looking at this, I better get some better pictures soon, with macro of course.

Very nice addition, some of these building designs are great. Let me give you some tips to help your photography, first off, if you're using a digital camera, which I hope you are, there should be a macro function. The macro function keeps the photos of close=up things, like legos, from blurring. This is a button on most every digital camera that is usually represented by a flower. Press the flower button on your camera, and your pictures will be much better. One more thing, I really like your treetop hotel, I'd like to borrow the idea, not the design, but I'd like to use the name in my city, can I? Thanks and good luck! ~T

If you'd like to see the full extent of Blocktropolis, the most recent update is here: http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/141795. But there is still another update in the works!

Absolutely. One of my goals was to have someone use one of my ideas, so you can use anything I have come up with.

Thanks for the advice, and yes, I am using a digital camera. I have been using other settings, so I will have to try Macro with my next pictures.
