A metropolis struggling to rediscover its identity in order to survive, its rich past was far gone, and its best days were behind it.
Only to be replaced by a greed, crime, and corruption—a decay—which like a slow poison
had traveled through the city’s veins and slowly drained the life out of it.

Many of those who remained were not there because they wanted to be.
Others, however, were there by choice.
