Shinnecock Avenue in Beachgate. The neighborhood in general is more suburban in appearance than its surrounding neighborhoods.

Beachgate is a peninsula in southeastern Broker, Liberty City. It is bordered by Crockett Avenue to the north, (Firefly Projects), Shinnecock Avenue to the west (Firefly Island), and an unnamed body of water to the south and east. It is based on the New York neighboorhood of Seagate.

Character

Beachgate is an affluent, gated community, housing a low-rise apartment and a number of large single-family houses usually with luxurious cars in their driveways. The neighborhood is separated from the rest of Broker, giving it its own unique feel that is unmatched by any other areas in the borough.

People of interest

The Faustin family, Mikhail, Ilyena and Anna, resided in a mansion at the very southern end of the community's main street, Shinnecock Avenue, until Mikhail's death, when Ilyena and Anna fled to a boardwalk in Hove Beach. An unlocked Turismo can be found parked in the driveway.

Influence

Beachgate's real life archetype is Coney Island's Seagate neighborhood in Brooklyn, New York.

Transport

The Liberty City Subway does not provide service to Beachgate. However, there is a station in nearby Hove Beach.
