Welcome to Emporia sign

Emporia was home to the wealthiest citizens of Columbia, including its founder, Zachary Hale Comstock. It is the largest stronghold for the Founders in the city as Shantytown is for the Vox Populi.

HistoryEdit

Emporia Billboard

Emporia seemed to contain the heart of Columbia itself, housing the city's upper class and also Comstock House, which can be seen even on the outskirts of the district. It has tall stately buildings and towers, with narrow streets and seemed to resemble a smaller, floating New York.

The district's main transportation hub was the massive and elegant Grand Central Depot where people could peruse the numerous shops and restaurants within the station or in Downtown Emporia as well as board a gondola or hovercraft at Port Prosperity to other areas.

BioShock InfiniteEdit

Main article: BioShock Infinite

Booker and Elizabeth accidentally end up in Emporia after their airship had been taken down by Songbird. At this point, Emporia is nothing but a war zone due to the presence of the Vox Populi as Columbian citizens are being evacuated onto airships. A dead, alternate Booker Dewitt had led the Vox Populi attack on Emporia, leaving behind several Columbian politician's scalps nailed to a board. As a result, the Vox Populi control the majority of Emporia, with red banners and paint covering most of the downtown area. As Elizabeth and Booker move on, they find that all citizens not on the evacuating airships are either in hiding or dead.
