Huntington Street, which is overshadowed by an elevated line, similar to Hove Beach's Mohawk Avenue, is the main thoroughfare of Cerveza Heights, cutting across the heart of the area.

Cerveza Heights is a neighborhood in central Dukes. It is bordered to the northeast by Charleston Avenue (Meadows Park); Livingston Street and Hooper Street to the northwest (East Island City); Stone Street and Valley Forge Avenue to the west (BOABO); Brunner Street to the southwest (Downtown); Algonquin-Dukes Expressway to the south (Schottler); and Carson Street and Stillwater Avenue to the southeast (Meadow Hills and Beechwood City).

Character

Cerveza Heights is a middle-class neighborhood in Dukes. It is dominated by low-rise apartments, brownstones, and chains of small-time stores/businesses. Culturually, the area has a very diverse influence and demographic - including Italian, Asian (mainly south Asian and Chinese), and especially a sizable Spanish/Hispanic influence. The area also contains a hospital and the Dukes Police Station. Many of the roads in Cerveza Heights can also get quite busy during the day.

Despite being primarily middle-class; some areas and streets are controlled by the Spanish Lords. It serves as their base of operations in the Dukes. Some of these streets can get particularly dangerous at night. Members of the Italian Mafia can also be seen hanging outside the Cluckin' Bell. These are presumably members of the Messina Family since they are the family controlling Dukes, as they're also some Italian themed restaurants and flags in the area.

In Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars, the Triads also control a part of Cerveza Heights, mainly in the areas of restaurants and shops with an Asian influence.

Influences

Cerveza Heights is based on the New York City neighborhoods of Jackson Heights, Corona (incidentally cerveza is the Spanish word for beer and Corona is the name of a famous Mexican beer), and Ozone Park in Queens. Like it's real life counterparts Cerveza Heights is ethnically diverse with notable Chinese, South Asian, Latino, and Italian communities.

Easter eggs

Up north towards the border of East Island City there is a building with artwork all over it. If the player looks at it closely it is artwork from former Grand Theft Auto games, more specifically from Grand Theft Auto III, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. The pictures consist of artwork of:

This is similar to easter eggs in the Looking for that Special Someone trailer.
