Location: Central Park

Aspect. Bigger than you think

The largest park in the city, at 1.32 square miles, it makes up nearly 6% of the land area of manhattan. Such a space had not even been planned for the urban development plan of 1811, but the need for a large public park reached the hearts of poets and influential New Yorkers; and by 1853, 700 acres had been allotted for the purpose.

The 6 miles of park drive and innumerable walkways through the park are only the beginning. A total of 843 acres of meadows, forests, and public attractions fill the park and even serve as home to 18 people (according to the 2000 Census).

This block of nature attracts New York inhabitants both rich and poor, the former to parkside real estate and the latter to any number of benches or obscure underpasses within the park itself.

This center of nature in the city is logically enough, home to a spirit known to many as the Manna-Hata (the Lenape name), or the Soul of the City. It is omnipresent throughout New York; it is the manifestation of New York City's dreams and desires, but little is known what may goals it may have. 

Reports suggest that The Soul of the City can manifest through any of the large number of statues in the park. Some blessed (crazy?) individuals have even claimed to have spoken with these statues.

I like it, but if the "soul of the city" is going to be an npc, I think it needs a bit more. Does anyone else agree/disagree?

I agree. I do like that it has a name though.
