The Northside Industrial District (NID), or just Northside, is a sub-district of Watson in Cyberpunk 2077.

Overview

Northside Industrial District (NID) was once Watson's prosperous factory sub-district. Nowadays its desolate and neglected, its factories are mostly non-functional and abandoned due to odd earthquake damage and a lack of investments by Japanese corporations that originally financed this area.

New apartments blocks were built on the edge of the district to hide it from the rest of Night City. They're home to mid-level employees who manage the few operational factories in this area.

Still people need to live here. Many have come here looking for opportunity and a new life. They got a big chance to work in the factory, and now they are stuck in limbo. Some other residents of the NID are much worse. The Maelstrom claim this area as their territory. They use its abandoned buildings as hideouts, illegal braindance studios, and warehouses for the loot they steal from the corporate transports.[1]

Behind the scenes

In an earlier period, the Northside Industrial District was the workshop of Night City, a mini-Manchesterian cluster of mills abutting the metropolis' heart. Its factories gave jobs to thousands and pumped out the goods that brought in the city's wealth. Now, factories and workers alike have been outclassed and abandoned, leaving behind a skeleton of smokestacks as souvenirs. The buildings are Entropic in form—simple, boxy and horizontal—with tacked-on Kitsch graffiti and advertisements. A wide road winds amongst them and a massive AV hangar fills a whole block—an impressive hub dating from the district's glory days. Yet while one can pass through with relative ease, those left living here have it hard, working eighteen-hour days in the few factories still operational and carving out a life in the rubble with the time that remains.
