A city located in the Hampton Roads area of Virginia. Has one of the highest crime rates in the 757. Basically has the look and feel of a downgraded Norfolk (another Hampton Roads city). Not the best place to be at night...or day.

Parent: "Ok honey, well if you move there, just make sure to have plenty of food, water, and oh yeah an AK-47 with hollow tip rounds."
