Spit Hearth is a sizeable district in New Crobuzon, connected by the Skyrail station at Spit Bazaar to the skyrail network. Between Spit Heath and The Crow is a notorious red-light district.


Originally a district known as a haven for dissenting churches, it is now a bustling district home to stone houses and numerous small shops, as well as the subterranean punishment factories that are housed where the borough meets the River Tar.

Traces of its history remain, including the numerous fringe religions that are practiced in the district, as well as old stone walls held together with paste from the innumerable posters that once advertised theological debates and discussions. Passing through the district is also the most direct route to reach the Palgolak temple that sits near the northern edge of Brock Marsh.
