Nat Mendelsohn dreamed of a city that would rival Los Angeles, in 320 square kilometers of Mojave desert paradise. The park was beautiful--though not native to the desert and artificially watered, naturally. Nat Mendelsohn had a dream. He envisioned a city in the Mojave Desert that would rival Los Angeles. It was a paradise of 320 square kilometers, with a park and a lake, but not one native to desert life.
On a map, it may seem that Mendelson's wish has come true. Hundreds of miles of named roads cut through the desert known as California City. They end in cul de sacs and look like a suburban community. California City is the third-largest city in California, and the 34th largest in America. On closer inspection, one can quickly see that something is missing: houses.
Dawn it-toroq huma kompletament vojta, m'hemm l-ebda dar, l-ebda grid ta 'elettriku, xejn. It-toroq vojta huma ghost-grid ta 'suburbania, qed jistennew li jimtlew.
