Detailed Cartography: Midtown

City Center or Midtown
     City Center sprang up between Fairhaven and Meriville, the two towns that first consolidated into the city of Belport. Neither town could agree on a name, and so the new name of Belport was chosen to placate the citizens of both towns. The new downtown became the financial center of the city, laying claim to the first high rises. Though it had nothing as fancy as the Empire State Building, the Horiwitz Tower first defined the Belport skyline. Other, less impressive buildings rose up, creating a dense downtown financial district on par with any modern city. Unlike the other parts of the city, City Center is laid out in an exact grid. City Center stretches from Meriville to Fairhaven, now, and ends at University Square.
