A town street in this paper is a residential boundary of sections or blocks in a town. This paper presents a formalization of which residential section/blocks are essential for discussing the features of the model to describe a life of town streets. We take the typical residential sections in Tokyo, presents the features of the sections, and reproduces future general section boundaries that are taking into the updates in temporal boundaries based on Schelling model. We focus two features of residential blocks in this paper: one is the line lengths of boundaries in sections/blocks, and the other is the angles between two lines of boundaries in sections/blocks, where their boundaries are represented by the lines of piecewise linear. Then, we show that we can find the human features in the general town street patterns based on a boundary effect and a fluctuation.
