East Holland as viewed to the northeast.

Character

East Holland is a working-class neighborhood, lending itself to an interesting contrast in this part of Algonquin as the much more affluent and upscale Lancaster neighborhood lies to the south. Given that the neighborhood is located quite a distance away from the heart of Algonquin, this part of the borough has a much more gritty, urban character than the areas to the south.

Unlike North Holland to the west, East Holland is primarily a residential area, with small tenements and townhouses serving as the main housing stock. There are very few high-rise buildings in the area and only one housing project (northern Algonquin is usually densely populated with housing projects). Members of the M.O.B. gang are often seen in East Holland.

Influence

East Holland is heavily based on Spanish Harlem, a low-income Latino community in Manhattan.

Points of interest

The LCPD has a major precinct in East Holland, which is possibly a NOOSE/LCPD joint station. It is located at the intersection of San Juan Road and Topaz Street.

Transportation

The Liberty City Subway system serves the neighborhood. The Vespucci Circus station, on the A/J Algonquin Outer Line, is located at Vespucci Circus on Wardite Street, along the neighborhood's border with Northwood.

A second station, North Park, is located at the intersection of Denver Avenue and Topaz Street (along the East Holland-Middle Park border) and is served at all times by the K/C Algonquin Inner Line.
