CharacterEdit

Steinway is a heavily urbanized, working to middle-class area with copious amount of parkland. Steinway Park takes up the entire western portion of the neighborhood (from Concord Avenue to Franklin Street/the Humboldt River). The area is heavily influenced by Irish architecture; With most of the homes in Steinway resembling middle-class terraced homes found in the real world cities such as Belfast. Steinway Park is linked to Dukes Park in East Island City through the Humboldt River promenade; this path tunnels underneath East Island City. All of the land north of Dukes Drive is also reserved as greenspace known as Gantry Park, and a cemetery. Central Steinway is home to a slew of houses, complete with their own garages and small back gardens, as well as a few apartment buildings, and the Steinway Beer Garden. Finally, the only projects in Dukes; the Steinway Projects can be found in the north-eastern area of the neighborhood. Steinway is also the territory of the McReary crime family.

Points of interestEdit

  • The Steinway Beer Garden can be found within central area of the neighborhood, near the intersection of Morris Street and Ticonderaga Avenue.
  • Steinway Park is located between Concord Ave and Franklin St in Western Steinway, close to the river.
  • Gantry Park is located on Dukes Drive in northern Steinway.
  • There's a cemetery in the north-west.
  • The Steinway Projects.

InfluenceEdit

Steinway draws heavily from the northwestern neighborhoods of Queens, New York, such as Astoria and Long Island City. The Steinway Projects are almost undoubtedly a virtual representation of the Queensbridge Project in Long Island City, while Steinway Park and Gantry Park are replications of Astoria Park and Gantry Plaza State Park, respectively. The name of the neighborhood bear similarities to several locations bearing the name in Astoria, including Steinway Village (an incorporated village of Queens), Steinway Street, and the Steinway Piano Company, which was founded and manufactured in Astoria.

TransportEdit

The Liberty City Subway has a stop at the intersection of Dukes Boulevard and Morris Street (at the border with East Island City); however, it is closed for maintenance, so it is not in service. The closest in-service LTA station is Huntington Street, in Cerveza Heights.
