Leftwood is a township in the State of Alderney . It is located in North Alderney, bordered by Flathead Rd in the North (Westdyke), the West River in the East (North Holland in Algonquin, Liberty City), and Panhandle Rd in the south (Alderney City).
Leftwood is a middle and working-class residential township with a large multi-cultural population made up of a mix of Hispanics, Portuguese, and Italians, judging from Italian and Portuguese flags seen throughout the township and the bilingual banner and signs seen on the Leftwood Community Hall and other retail stores. Leftwood also has a large shopping economy, containing many retails stores and a strip mall with a four-story parking garage along Sacramento Ave that spans between Leftwood and Westdyke. Residential wise, Leftwood contains many homes and apartment buildings ranging from three to five stories, in which several can be entered.
Leftwood appears to contain elements of towns from Bergen County & Hudson County in general. Its namesake is believed to be derived from Englewood, New Jersey, but bears more of a resemblace to the smaller, less-known town of Westwood, New Jersey. The township may most likely be based on the former, however, due to Englewood's dominance of fame over Westwood.
