CNN iReport Features Well-Known Second Life Region

Train to Alexanderplatz -- next stop, Berlin 1924. Please be dressed right for your arrival!

CNN’s Web site carried an iReport on September 24 with a good, in-depth tour of the 1920s Berlin Project, the recreation of Weimar Berlin in a sim.  The group has found the wherewithal to acquire their own sim now, which gives proprietress Jo Yardley much more room to work in.  If you haven’t experienced this loving recreation of a past world, I’d encourage you to hit the SLurl, pick up some walking clothes from the freebie vendors or the stores surrounding the Teleportplatz, and take the train into the city.  (It is also suggested that you reduce your avatar’s height to a more normal level than most avatars stand at, if you can edit your shape.)  As the story relates, among the high points of the build are the only full-size recreation of the Brandenburg Gate (Brandenburger Tor) in Second Life 1, correctly positioned at the end of the Unter den Linden; and, of course, Der Kellar, the Project’s fabulous nightclub.

1 The picture I published recently of me in Berlin (on the anniversary of the Berlin Wall) was in a different sim, not the Project.  The giveaway to that is that I’m wearing modern clothes in the picture.
