Myal on SeaEdit
Myal on Sea (sometimes written as Myal-on-Sea), located on the northwestern shore of Maine City, is the main historical area of the city, with a lot of Victorian-era architecture. There are both commercial and residential areas in the neighbourhood, and it is also known for its popular beach.
Prufunitc, located on Maine City's western shore south of Myal on Sea, is the city's main industrial area, though there are also some office and commercial areas within the neighbourhood. Prufunitc contains the Maine City Port, which is Ostrobia's largest seaport. The Maine City International Airport (MCIA) is located on reclaimed land just west of Prufunitc.
West Point, located on Maine City's northern shore northeast of Myal on Sea, is a modern area of luxury housing and commercial areas.
Happy Valley is a settlement located just south of Maine City proper but within its metropolitan area. It is popular with tourists because of the multiple ski resorts that lie in the Maine Range surrounding Happy Valley.
Tuskta, located on Maine City's northern shore east of West Point, is a mostly residential area with a bad reputation, because it has significantly more poverty and crime than the rest of Maine City. It was voted #27 in worst places to live in Ostrobia during the 2018 National7 newspaper survey.
Maine City has a metro system, the Maine City Metro (MCM). It consists only of one line, and has not been expanded from its original route.
