There is also a stargate warp hub inside of Grand Central Station that will take you downtown directly from spawn.

View of location

It features numerous zoned neighborhoods, each designed to inspire and spark creative new architecture. Some restrictions will be placed on building size and types of blocks allowed, depending on district.

Green Space

Pork Authority

All lots South of Park Avenue are subject to the rules and regulations of the Pork Authority, as they run above Carpal Tunnel. Currently they are only allowed to build 10 blocks below sea level. Owners of these lots also agree that the Pork Authority may build on, above, or below their construction as transit needs warrant. The Pork Authority also runs Grand Central Station. Currently the Pork Authoridy is run by IrateJawn

Grand Central Station

Grand Central currently services Carpal Tunnel West, but will soon offer connections between Carpal Tunnel, the Rotato Tram, City Metro, and the Glass Skybridge network. It is also the city's public crafting house. All items in chests there are free for public use. Please drop off any excess materials you have in the appropriate chests.

Public Library

A spacious building dedicated to the growing of knowledge. Collections are housed on the first two floors and there is a public reed and tree farm in the basement, though the Pork Authority asks that these materials are used for book, bookcases, and furniture only. The library is also soon to feature a free book box and signs in the various sections linking to pertinent wiki entries.

City Hall

Not much is know about the acting mayor's plans for city hall, though there have been mutterings of a wheat farm underneath.

Lot Titles

A list of available and claimed lots and their zoning. Zoning and addresses are determined by which street your building's main entrance is on. Mixed use buildings with two addresses are allowable.

To claim a lot you must visit the site and put a sign with your name there. A claim registered on the wiki is not valid unless it has also been marked in-game.

The addresses listed are not the only ones possible, simply where signs have currently been placed, true addresses will be determined by the construction at each lot.

The Road

The Road is an attempt to build the longest road in the Aporkalypse, currently stretching about 6 km northward. Head north on Broadway and go past the gates. Large art sculptures will greet you on the other side. A few kilometers further, connections to the Chorizo Tunnel and to the Shroom are currently in place, as well as a short road to the town of GammonGetIt.

Development is welcome along the road. Please leave room for large art sculptures closer to the city. We're always accepting volunteers to continue Road construction.

Construction Progress

Construction of New Hamsterdam is open to the public. Pick a lot and build!
