Northwood is mostly made up of small stores and Public Housing Projects. Despite the area being considered "Working Class", Playboy X owns his luxury Monaco style penthouse there, which is ironic because in some missions he implied about how much he hated poor people. The Northwood Heights Bridge connectsAlgonquin with Bohan, starting from the north end of Frankfort Avenue in Northwood. North Holland and East Holland are to the south of Northwood. The area has a high African-American and hispanic demographic.
The Public Housing Projects in Northwood are considered "scary" by most players because of the ghostly apartments, gangs, the bloody pillows and matresses, and the hookers and cocaine in all the apartments.
