Before the 2000’s, this was the home of numerous local private yachts and a sizable fishing fleet. Now, the Upper Marina has become a seedy Industrial district characterized by low rents and a few businesses requiring large amounts of space. A modem Ferry Building mounted on piers stands at water’s edge; providing regular ferry service to the cross-bay suburb of West brook, while across a marina green of dying grass squats the recently renovated home of the Night City Yacht Club, favored by those Corp loners and Mover wanna-bes that still fancy themselves masters of the raging sea (when the local pirates aren’t about). From the edge of its old and marginally maintained docks, you can watch sail boats cleaving
the steaming. polluted waters, an echo of happier times.
- C. Donut Express Co:
This is a trucking company equipped with long-haul semis, local delivery vans, and armored cars. The Night City facility combines a truck yard with a trans-shipment warehouse to
transfer shipments between local and long-haul trucks. This is a good place for nomads to pick up jobs as convoy outriders; they hire at all hours and don’t ask too many questions.

- Acme Distributors:
Acme Distributors does a legitimate business in goods transfer, but there are a lot of odd goods ….that come in through the back door, “hot” off the street.
These people clean corporate offices, doing things like waxing floors and desktops, taking out the trash, etc. All service personnel are bonded, as they have access to the inner most
areas of powerful companies.
- 24 Hour Cafe:
This is one of a durable breed of “joints” selling food to the never ending stream of workers and wanderers who pass through the maritime area. Very popular among the smugglers
and other dockside denizens of the area, thanks to its “home cooked style” meals.
Ostensibly a travel agency, SensuTours is really a front for Interpol, the EEC’s police/secret service. SensuTours rarely sells travel packages, and is amazingly inefficient…in dealing
with real customers.

illustrious hospitals as the Medical Center. Medicross also pays for intact body parts: 500$ for an arm, 600% for a leg, 700$ for vital organs, 200$ for secondary organs, and
800$ for eyes. Prices are reduced drastically for diseased or damaged parts. Some addicts have been known to hawk parts of their bodies to afford a fix.
