CharacterEdit

Northern Gardens is primarily an urban, residential, mostly upper-class neighborhood. The part of the neighborhood east of Altona Avenue (which almost constitutes its entirety) contains high-rise apartments as its exclusive housing stock, whereas smaller apartments, townhouses, and duplexes can be found near the Little Bay border. It is arguably the most lively of the northern Bohan neighborhoods, claiming almost every public attraction to be found in this part of the borough.

The Northern Expressway bisects the neighborhood, separating its residential southern half from its northern half, which consists only of uninhabited, undeveloped public land and a beach at sea level, cut off from the rest of the borough by a high ridge that runs along northern Bohan (the same ridge that separates Boulevard from its coastline).

Northern Gardens is prized for its amazing views of the body of water to the north, described in the official game map as "one of the most tranquil and picturesque shorelines in the whole of Liberty City." Indeed, the neighborhood's (partial) position at the end of the aforementioned ridge makes it a popular destination for Bohan residents wishing to escape the hustle and bustle of the gritty neighborhoods to the south. Northern Gardens had a population of 6,269 as of 2008, making it the most populated neighbourhood in Bohan.

InfluencesEdit

Southern Northern Gardens appears to have been influenced by the Bronx, New York neighborhood of Co-op City, while its northern half seems to borrow elements from Pelham Bay Park. The area's name is presumably based on that of Pelham Gardens in The Bronx, New York.
