Hove Beach has a very large population of Eastern European immigrants such as Russians, Poles, Ukrainians, Serbs, and Albanians. The neighborhood, for the most part is a mix between working-class and middle-class. The area is primarily made up of various low-rise apartments, brownstones, regular terraced houses, factories, bars, and stores - many have an eastern European influence/theme such as the "[[Comrades Bar]]" along with the Russian-owned clothing store in the area. Various streets and roads can get quite busy during the day, such as Mohawke Avenue.

CharacterEdit

Hove Beach has a very large population of Eastern European immigrants such as Russians, Poles, Ukrainians, Serbs, and Albanians. The neighborhood, for the most part is a mix between working-class and middle-class. The area is primarily made up of various low-rise apartments, brownstones, regular terraced houses, factories, bars, and stores - many have an eastern European influence/theme such as the "Comrades Bar" along with the Russian-owned clothing store in the area. Various streets and roads can get quite busy during the day, such as Mohawk Avenue.

In terms of crime and safety - Hove Beach can be unpredictable; especially in comparison to some other neighborhoods in Broker, though it suffers from less crime than some areas in Broker such as the Firefly Projects. Some streets are less safe than others - mainly in the working class portion of Hove Beach near the factories. The middle class area of Hove Beach is the safest. Those that are not of an eastern-European descent are at a greater risk of crime and harassment.

Most of the inhabitants in Hove Beach are generally hard-working people. Instead, most of the crime in the area is the result of the Russian Mafia - who keep a close watch over the area. Homeless people and drug addicts can also occasionally be found in Hove Beach (especially during the night).

The Russian Mafia can be particularly dangerous to Niko Bellic if he starts a fight in the area - as they are heavily armed.

InfluenceEdit

Hove Beach is based on Brooklyn's Brighton Beach neighborhood, known for its Eastern European population. This is in reference to Hove, England's proximity to, and relationship with, neighboring Brighton. The two, having city status, are officially known as Brighton and Hove.

The area is also influenced by Bay Ridge, which is also similarly famous for its immigrants.
