Firefly Projects is a large housing project in southeastern Broker. It is bordered to the north by Deadwood Street and to the northwest by Onondaga Avenue (South Slopes); to the west also by Onondaga Avenue (Hove Beach); to the south by Crockett Avenue (Beachgate); and to the east by the Broker-Dukes Expressway and the Broker Sound.

Character

The Firefly Projects is a working-class, run-down and heavily deprived neighborhood which consists of large housing complexes and projects. The Projects in Firefly are actually the largest housing projects in Broker. The area is highly residential and is infamous for a very high crime rate. Demographically, the area is primarily made up of African-americans. The area suffers from intense gang violence aswell as a large drug problem and is one of the more active areas of Liberty City for drug trafficking (especially Broker). Culturally speaking, the area is influenced by the hip hop culture. Statistically, the Firefly Projects often has a higher crime rate than any other neighborhood in Broker.

Aside from its extensive apartment/projects complex, Firefly Projects also houses a train yard that branches off the Broker Line.

Common pedestrians in the Firefly Projects include gang bangers, homeless people, regular pedestrians, and prostitutes that spawn at night.

Influences

The Firefly Projects are primarily based off of Brownsville, East New York and Ocean Hill. The same neighborhoods exhibit the same social problems and crime rate. The projects are based off of the Van Dyke houses in Brownsville where the movie Brooklyn's Finest was filmed. 

Transport

The Liberty City Subway does not serve the area; however, residents in the southern and western areas may choose to use Hove Beach station in its namesake neighborhood, while those in the northern and eastern blocks might find it more convenient to head north to South Slopes for the Schottler station.

Gang Activity

The area seems to be home to at least two gangs: the African Americans, and the Russian Mafia, as members of both gangs can be commonly seen hanging around Firefly Projects.

Trivia

  • Firefly Projects is notable for its glitch-laden swingsets, capable of flinging, at great heights and distances, vehicles that push against them. While there are four such swings in the area, only two are situated in an area that has ample room for players to drive in with a moderate-sized vehicle. The swingsets are also known to hit and fling players in contact with the swing through the same process.[1]
