Odd Alley

"It had taken them hours of searching, walking through the twists and turns of the mazelike lanes and alleys of Old City. A false turn, backtracking, a street angling in the wrong direction. They had even entered a few of the establishments bordering their destination with the intention of finding an excuse to slip out the back doors and, thus, reach their destination. But to their astonishment, none of the places had back windows, let alone back doors! And they had been not-so-nicely ejected from the Sunken Grotto Tavern when they were caught painstakingly searching a back room of the establishment in hopes of finding some sort of exit."

"The distant end of the alley, a place evidently shunned by all living creatures, had its gate, certainly. The portal was old, iron, and locked. Knocking, banging, and pounding did no good."

- Gary Gygax, Night Arrant

Just sharing a good find? Is the map from the book? Did you add to it?

Looks like some useful stuff!

I made the map. There isn't a map in the book. Placement of the buildings and the names of the streets are from my imagination.

Looks fun, Rip :D Did you create the map from whole cloth or leverage portions of Denis' maps/other product maps/etc.?

The building marked T29 Odd House is from The Adventure Begins. If you read the description, it makes a lot of sense that Odd Alley would be beside it (and quite possibly named after it). I didn't use Denis' map, since I wanted it to be more twisty and tangled.
