Old man Eli's apartment is a decent building in the Docks. It consists of one room, and does not seem to have a stairway leading to the streets outside. Eli possibly used a ladder to reach the place. According to a note found on the man's table, Eli once saw the Cetus Amicus while carving a scrimshaw. He called it a metal whale, with the name "Cetus Amicus" written on it.
This building may or may not show how Dockside living is. Although cramped, the apartment is relatively decent, and serves as a home for a man who is usually outside, at work. When near Eli's apartment, you will hear loud talking, in an indoor envinronment, as though there is a party in the building beneath Eli's home.
