Crestwick Island has a great atmosphere and it really felt like I was doing some shopping on a day off, while the rest of the neighbours had commuted to work early in the morning. A perfect place to wander around, windowshopping or just have a seat on one of the benches and ponder the meaning of life. Or something.
Upon arrival you are offered a note card with some rules, which you may want to read. I found this rule one of the best I have ever seen (and I have seen a lot in my travels!), copied from the note:
“General behavior: Keep in mind that we like the atmosphere of a town. Try not to stand in the streets too much or hover over things, there are sidewalks for a reason. We have tried to create a photogenic environment and we ask that you respect artists attempting to shoot. In addition, please use the various seating options for brief afk’s. No extended afk’s please, we are a homestead and have limited avatar slots.”
