Moving from west to east, Downtown tells the story of Central City. City Hall, the main branch of the Central City Public Library, Police Headquarters, and multiple municipal offices reside in late nineteenth and early twentieth century multistory buildings on the edge of Capitol Hill, between 65th and 70th streets, where the city was first founded. Newer skyscrapers, the seats of corporate interest, extend north and east from the city’s original nucleus, money towering over public service. The glass and concrete portion of the city’s skyline tapers to storefronts and aging utilities the closer it gets to Martin Luther King Drive and the inner-city neighborhood of Echo.
