Intersection of Merchant's Lane and Lake's Deep(ne, e, n, s and w)

You are standing at the intersection of Merchant's Lane, which runs north-south, and Lake's Deep, which runs west-east. To the southwest, you can see Town Hall, where all who defy the law are brought to justice. To the northeast lies the waterfront, and peering down the street to the west you can make out the Great Gates of Esgaroth. The road south appears to lead out to the quays, whereas the streets north and east lead further into the city.
The only obvious exits are northeast, east, north, south and west.
