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 Hoober 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).

Cerveza Heights is considered to be one of the "ghettos" of Dukes. Cerveza Heights is a working-class area that is dominated by low-rise apartments, brownstones, and chains of small-time stores/businesses. Culturually, the area has a very diverse influence - including Italian, Asian, and especially, Spanish/Hispanic influence. Demographically, the area is diverse but is largly Hispanic. Other common demographics include Chinese, Italian, and South Asian communities. The area also contains a hospital and the Dukes Police Station - no doubt placed in Cerveza Heights to combat the high crime rate in the neighborhood. Many of the roads in Cerveza Heights can also get quite busy during the day.

It serves as the Spanish Lords' base of operations in the Dukes, who contribute to a large amount of the crime and gang violence in the neighborhood. 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.


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.

Places of interest

In GTA IV, a hospital is located in the neighborhood at the intersection of Inchon Avenue and Livingston Street, with a Cluckin' Bell fast food restuarant a block south at the intersection of Inchon Avenue and Huntington Street. A Manana is wanted for the Stevie's Car Thefts which can be found on Huntington Street in Cerveza Heights. Farther down east on Huntington Street, is the closed Burger Shot. In addition to this, the Dukes Police Station can also be found in Cerveza Heights.

In Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars, Sum Yung Gai (which is also featured in GTA IV), serves as the first point where the player performs missions; the first safehouse where Huang Lee stays is also located in Cerveza Heights, a short walk north from Sum Yung Gai.


The Liberty City Subway has a stop at the intersection of Charleston Avenue and Huntington Street. It is served at all times by the Broker Line.

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:

  • Ryder (San Andreas box art);

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