Sounds like it's asking for the name of the tower, not the city.

Creepy's more how I'd describe it. If you go to Google Maps, there's no Street View, but a few people have taken panoramas there. Its weird seeing such big spaces, buildings and monuments, but so few people. Looks almost post-apocalyptic, except that everything is pristine.
