Hotel Chelsea in the New York District

Join us today, Monday 19th April at 2pm SLT in our beautiful studio in Garden of Dreams as we journey back into the past for a show first shown in November 2011, when we paid a visit to the Mainland, and explored – among other locations – the Hotel Chelsea and CBGBs.

You can watch it on this blog, and you can also see the show on the Designing Worlds Vimeo channel at: https://vimeo.com/513175829. And you can join the special Watch Party at 2pm SLT in our studio on Garden of Dreams.

This was our second trip to the Mainland of Second Life, and we visited some fascinating and beautiful locations, including the recreation of an historic piece of New York City, magnificent temples to ancient deities, and an art gallery that’s 3km tall.

Our guide on this journey was Nexus Burbclave, who had recently undertaken the Mainland Renaissance project to highlight some of the fascinating builds of the mainland.

The famous CBGBs

Nexus took us to the Hotel Chelsea in Lanestris, a loving recreation of the well-known new York location, where we met Mykal Skall, its creator who works with Enola Vaher, the manager, to bring this fascinating area to life, and we talked about the build and the district that surrounded it. And Elrik took a look at the famous music club – CBGBs.

Temple of Nautilus

Then we moved on to explore the beautiful Temple of Neptune in Nautilus and saw some of the gorgeous Linden designed buildings there on public land.

A highlight of the show is our visit to Solkide Auer’s amazing 300 metre tower at Italic Art, on the mainland slim of Slitheen – he was going to remove it, but he left it up a little longer so that viewers of Designing Worlds could see this amazing build for themselves.

And we finished with a resident build in Nautilus – Kothar by Valentine Easter – which we think may surprise you!
