News flash! A large and complicated downtown area has just sprung into being near (for some value of "near") Neighborhood One!
Sally Raptor, matriarch of one of the neighborhood's First Families, immediately went to investigate this unprecendented phenomenon.
Sally's daughter Gina also heard the news bulletin, and came down (without bothering to change into anything respectable) to check the place out as well.
As Sally left to look for food, a certain amount of chaos erupted behind her.
That previous image also reveals one of our first sighted Downtownies. We are happy! The Townie Project so far doesn't seem to have resulted in any new normal townies being generated, so finding hordes of interestingly dressed new people Downtown pleases us.
Anyway, on the theory that it's good to be able to see what you're eating, Sally tried a better-lit place for dinner.
