The underground Adder Tunnel connects the main 3 boroughs.
Harwood is the city's residential district, and second smallest borough.

Gang control wise, at the start of Danger Zone Harwood is turf to the Jones Crime Family, Irish Mob, Las Tormentas and the Radamir Bratva are setting their sights on expanding into the borough.
Branston is New Hamilton City's main industrial district, with many factories and warehouses. It is, however, the most crime ridden, being almost entirely controlled by the three old mafia families. The Irish Mob is also known to operate in the area, along with a set of the Dominican Drug Gang and a small presence of the Korean Mob. The Variety Grove area can be considered somewhat residential with its housing projects. Branston has its own hospital and unsurprisingly, two police stations. There is an abandoned fire station in the Satellite area. Ironically, it is rumored to have burned down.
