I took an airship to Bay City - Docklands and disembarked at the airship terminal there.
Almost immediately, I encountered a gentleman sans clothes, suggesting that the city was not yet entirely civilized. (To be fair, he wore sneakers.)
[16:22] Rhianon Jameson: Greetings, sir.
[16:23] Nekkid Guy [name changed to protect the noob]: hi
[16:23] Nekkid Guy: i need a car
[16:23] Nekkid Guy: and some pants
[16:23] Rhianon Jameson laughs.
[16:23] Rhianon Jameson: Indeed, the pants may be a higher need.
[16:24] Rhianon Jameson: As a temporary measure, you might look in your Library folder in your Inventory.
[16:24] Nekkid Guy: i like the gothic look you got going on
[16:24] Rhianon Jameson: Thank you. :)
[16:25] Nekkid Guy: anyway any cars round here?
[16:25] Rhianon Jameson: Not that I know of, but I'm just exploring here.
[16:26] Nekkid Guy: ok
[16:26] Nekkid Guy: thanx
[16:26] Rhianon Jameson: The pants should really be a priority.
He was a polite enough chap, if one closed one's eyes and ignored the obvious problem. His rez day was that very day, which made me wonder what happened to the clothes he was rezzed with. But he wandered off in the opposite direction, so I continued my journey.
I next encountered a branch of the infamous Woodbury University (which espouses a Communist philosophy), which also seemed to house someone whose business was "SL Divorce Lawyer." As I am (a) not a Communist or (b) spousally encumbered, I moved on.
I stopped at the ice rink, but did not skate. Also in the category of seasonal decorations, the chapel had a little creche out front, as well as an ominous-looking heavier-than-air craft circling overhead.
The Acorn Building was part of a large complex of buildings, near the Ryman Auditorium. Buildings will apparently be very tall in the future!
