Purgatory is a neighborhood in the borough of Algonquin, located in Liberty City. It is located north of Westminster, south of Middle Park West, and west of Star Junction. At one point, it was the central place of operations for the Irish Mob, although their influence has waned considerably, possibly as the result of the gentrification of the neighbourhood. It appears to be the GTA analogue of the real-life neighbourhood of Hell's Kitchen, a place once populated primarily by working-class Irish immigrants and Irish-Americans as well as a center of the real-life Irish mob in New York City. It is one of the less affluent neighbourhoods in Algonquin.

Patrick McReary claims that the neighborhood is called Purgatory because the citizens were so afraid of the Irish Mob that people rarely left their homes, though his brothers dismiss this. Gordon Sargent makes fun of this statement by replying with, "It's called Purgatory because the McRearys' stories were so fuckin' boring. Listening to them was like being in Purgatory!"
