Great Second Life Destinations: Spirits, Candlelight, and Sophisticated Design at Haunted Faircrest


Faircrest is a very beautiful residential sim that is also a bit unnerving. Twisted and dead shrubbery surround a mansion that is being used by a very strange cult -- where beauty and aesthetics are more important than gore. Ruins, both on the grounds and in the sea surround the main residence. The natural setting of well designed mountains and a very realistic sea give Faircrest realism and sophistication that other destinations of this genre, busy in October during the haunted week of Halloween at the end of the month, would do well to follow, and is recommended for a visit.

Faircrest is a private residential sim that is open to visitors but requests that they be respectful.

In the meantime, enjoy "New York New York" from 1949's epic movie On The Town, a tale of three sailors who have shore leave in Manhattan in World War 2 and starring Frank Sinatra and Gene Kelley.

View of Manhattan skyline at night from Brooklyn Heights


I will also be taking a nighttime tour of Brooklyn Heights, one of the prettiest parts of that great borough. One of the highlights is the amazing view of the Manhattan skyline from the Brooklyn Heights Promenade. Child star Patty Duke famously lived there with her identical cousin Kathy -- as one of the greatest television theme songs of all times tells us.
