Hy-Pointe or 'High Point' gets its name for being the highest point of the city. The Pointe is also the name of the signal tower (now in disrepair) that stood on the hill. This watchtower gives a commanding view of the surrounding lands. A pity that it is only used by lovers, kids, and curious people.

It is a mixed area, businesses and homes. The neighborhood is middling, not rich, nor poor. Most of the businesses on this triangular shaped hill include Hy-Pointe, Hy, or Cloud in their name, so Hy-Pointe Inn, Hy-King's Tavern, Hy-Clayworks, and Cloud Silver Works. The people usually work on the hill at the numerous shops and works.

There are a few businesses by The Pointe. The Hy-Pointe Inn, a small temple (the only establishment not called Hy something, as calling itself the Hy-Temple would be blasphomous), and the Hy-Pointe Scriptorium where scribes copy manuscripts for others.

The Houses (and other buildings here), are narrow, long, and usually dug into the hill. They are one to two level shoeboxes, if shoeboxes had been invented yet. Each block forms a tier that faces out towards the lower city.

The streets are straight and paved. They run mostly parallel along the hillside. The sidewalks are almost all stairs. The few roads that go up and down are quite steep only go up and down each tier. This means one has to zig and zag up the hill to reach the appropriate tier. The local kids make a good penny by carting stuff up and around the hill.
