Going south from the “New Kingston” business district, you will quickly be in the top section of the old business district. In other directions, moving away from that district, the land will be used by mixtures of shops, other business places and residences. Areas fully dominated by residences are to be found further outwards from the core business districts, and that in all directions except southwards. As you see below, residential attributes vary widely, and our photos do not cover the city areas occupied by the “truly poor” folk. There are also no photos of the areas in the hillsides that are occupied by the "truly rich" folk.
