The Cliffs

The Cliffs is old money.

And old houses ... but in general most are highly maintained, and The Cliffs remains a desirable place for Bay City residents to live. Just mentioning that you live in The Cliffs gives you an air of respectability you may or may not deserve. Even your old car becomes a matter of choice rather than necessity. You live in The Cliffs! What more is there to say?

In reality, while many of the old homes are routinely updated, some residences in the neighborhood that need extensive work occasionally come on the market, providing people who are willing to work hard an opportunity to step up into a richies lifestyle without the richies level of investment.

The Cliffs is on the far west side of Bay City and stretches from First to Ninth. Only three streets run through The Cliffs: Cliffview, Vista Drive, and Terrace. Of the three, Cliffview sits directly on the basalt cliff face rising above the tracks leading to Argyle Station and has the best views.

Cliffview and Vista open to First in the south and Ninth to the north and run unbroken the entire seven blocks. Terrace opens to Alder in two locations, at Second and Washington. Eighth Street ends at Laurel four blocks to the east, leaving the street names on the north end of The Cliffs going from Sixth to Washington, then to Ninth.

Wesji Scarab of We Got Junk bought an older home on Vista in The Cliffs neighborhood and is remodeling it with the best of the We Got Junk inventory, proving that opportunities for the good life are open to every class of people in Bay City.

We first visit The Cliffs in Book 1 of The Human-Hybrid Project, Shattered by Glass.
