Description

Levy drive is a residential street in the suburb of Crooketon. The houses there were higher class, and until the Malton Incident, boasted immaculate lawns and beautiful scenery. Now, the once finely polished windows are shattered, and the lawns are charred and dead.

History

Levy Drive was built in the late 1800s to account for the influx of new citizens to the city following the industrial revolution. It's proximity to several hospitals, most notably Margaret General, led to a richer group of people moving in to the drive. It became a neighbourhood led by Doctors and nurses, and so led to the local Crooketon Council becoming richer.

The drive itself was named after Peter "Diamond" Levy, an entrepeneur who had lived in Crooketon a decade before, before he moved to India to launch his major cloth business. Similarly, he opened a Factory close by, as an extension of his now flourishing business.

In the 1960s, a popular boy band, the Levy Drivers, launched from here, going on to sell two top forty singles with "1952" and "Dreamer's Dream". During their only tour of the United Kingdom, they returned to Malton, playing a small concert at Club Greswell, a nearby club. After the band's dissolution in 1971, their lead singer, Tom Lemon, returned to Levy Drive to live, until he was killed by an adoring fan two decades later.
