Our Lady of Miracles

Our lady of Miracles is a Catholic church founded in 1875.  The small cathedral was completed in 1935 and supposedly has several works of art and artifacts donated to the church.  The church runs many charities from food and housing to the poor, drug rehabilitation, and religious counseling to emergency shelter for those displaced by super powered action.  The bishop keeps a well stocked infirmary and food stores hidden in the catacombs just in case.

RATs

Rent an Agent Team.  In a world of supers, your traditional security group is not enough.  RATS was formed when several mercenaries working within the city commented on the lack of well trained mercenaries in the field of private security.  With a bit of seed money, surreptitiously collected, the former agents formed RATs.  RAT agents are well trained and well trained in their rights and obligations.  While not all their customers have been on the up and up, the agency has been able to maintain a high standard of credibility amongst their clients.  RAT agents are represented by legal RATs (the RATs corporation's crack legal team) so any legal entanglements are usually handle readily.  

 

RAT agents do not take action on immoral or definitely illegal ground but will work within shadier definitions of the law.  They have been known to protect criminal kingpins from supers to great acclaim but have also turned traitor to global threatening maniacs.

Santa's Village

 

A family fun setting in the 1960's, the current place shut down in the 1990's due to poor attendance.  The village had a saccharine like little village where cheap Chinese made toys and candy were sold.  Fun rides for all ages were available in almost carnival like atmosphere.  In December, the place would come alive with a permanent Santa and reindeer.  Today, weeds and broken equipment abound.  Gang markings cover many of the little gingerbread shops and certain deranged criminals have made the place their base of operations at times.

The Palais

 

An old brownstone apartment building which has been around since the 1880s.  The accommodations are dirt cheap but so is the building.  The current owners have been indicted for various housing violations and are barely skirting by, just like the rats and cockroaches in the building.  Interestingly enough the area around the building is fairly free of crime.  This was due to the masked vigilante known as the Sheppard operating out of an old speakeasy in the basement of the building.  Unfortunately, the Sheppard a little while ago finally met a grizzly end while trying to save people from a burning building but the base was never discovered.

Second Chances Halfway House

 

Second Chances is a boarding house set up to assist supervillains in their efforts at reintegrating back into society after they've served out their sentences or for those who've gotten released early for good behavior or after serving on the in the government's version of the Suicide Squad. It's a government-sponsored halfway house dealing in former supervillains.  Qualified former supervillains are watched and allow to reintegrate into society.  Funding for the effort is moderate to low depending on the current government attitude towards "reformed" supervillains so the house was put in a fiscally responsible location (a poorer section of the city).  Strangely, this has reduced the number of complaints about the house and increased it success rate compared to similar houses in other cities.
