Character and influences
Suffolk is bordered by Union Drive West to the west (Castle Garden City), Garnet Street to the north (The Meat Quarter and The Triangle), Columbus Avenue to the east (Lower Easton), and Feldspar Street and Frankfort Avenue to the south (Little Italy)
It is a very rich and affluent neighborhood, based on SoHo, New York City. The district is characterized by its low-rise cast iron buildings (based on many real-life counterparts in SoHo). And like neighboring Little Italy, a number of Suffolk's streets are constructed from cobblestone, similar to certain streets in SoHo. "Suffolk" is also the name of a county in Long Island, New York state. It is also the name of a county in England and a city in Virginia.
The neighborhood is served by the Liberty City Subway system. The Suffolk station, located at the intersection of Garnet Street and Denver-Exeter Avenue, is served by the K/C Algonquin Inner Line. The station is popular as it is located directly underneath the Rotterdam Tower.
