Siren street

-I've never been to this part of town before...what is this?
-You never been to a red-light district in your own world?
-Oh, one of those... You went to one when we visited my world?
-No, I saw it on your telly.
-I see...

  Siren street is several blocks of entertainment businesses in the largest settlement in the world, Korda. Here tea rooms, game rooms, pubs and other establishments can be found to titillate all adults that are out on the town for a night.  

Geography

This district is located in the older part of Korda and consists of around 12 blocks between two larger roads. The most notable landmarks in the area is the Ambren statue and Starlight Hall. There are also a couple of pretty cheap inns in the area.  

History

With the The Korda Alliance and the growth of the city in 1002RO the people started feeling safe in the unsafe world of Idyll. They could start thinking about entertainment instead of only their survival. Many businesses for adult entertainment started opening across the city.   A couple of the Houses did not apporove of this because of their children. The Koring House decided that the adult businesses should be kept to same district. The new district was built and the businesses who had already opened were asked to move to this new district. Most of them complied but those who did not were soon shut down.  

Crime

Sex work and similar is not illigal in Korda but there are still some unsavory people that gather in this district. Which means that more Guards patrol the area. To keep the district orderly and keep the unsavory people from tricking the decent people.  

In media

Since the advent of the printing press, Siren street has been mentioned several times in Korda's new newspaper. Which has also started spreading outside of the settlement. The district has been mentioned in lewd poetry and artists sometimes walk through the area to gather inspiration.

Love the idea of having important/notable features in a certain district.

:) checked Wikipedia's article on Kabukicho for inspiration on what kind of information I could add and saw that they had done that. XD

I really like how they've gained more interest through the invention of the printing press, particularly as to how writers now walk down the streets as a way of getting inspiration. It may be for lewd poetry, but it reminds me of bohemian writers going to Tangier in the 50s/60s.
