Cliffside is one of the districts of the Korvosan region of the Heights, and slightly less well-to-do than the other areas. It is home to the lower aristocracy and affluent merchants. Located towards the south of The Heights, Cliffside includes the famous Kendall Amphitheater, as well as Gatefoot, and part of the Pillar Wall. Cliffside also has watch houses of Sable Company marines to police the district. Due to how close the houses are built in the district, the rooftops of Cliffside are considered a part of the Shingles, an unofficial district that stretches across the rooftops of much of Korvosa and provides a secret means of access across the city via roof running.
