Harwood, as seen to the west in GTA III.

Harwood, is a district on Portland, Liberty City, in Grand Theft Auto III, Grand Theft Auto Advance and Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories. It is a northernmost district in the island, bordering Saint Mark's and Hepburn Heights to the south.

Character

Harwood is a northernmost district in Portland characterized by its largely undeveloped landscape, with only a few low-density businesses being based in the area, while other portions of the district are unoccupied.

The few buildings, businesses and landmarks that are within the district vary, from small scale commercial interests (a gas station, a car dealership, a taxi company, etc.) to low grade industrial sites (a junkyard) and civic service (a fire station). Another interesting landmark in Harwood is a disused train yard containing abandoned flatcars; the yard is connected to a tunnel that cuts underneath Saint Mark's, originally intending to connect to Portland View and Portland Harbor, lending to the idea that the Harwood trainyard was for industrial use.

Harwood is also a major location in Liberty City's transportation system in both GTA III and GTA Liberty City Stories, housing the Portland entrance into the Porter Tunnel and the Portland end of the Portland-Staunton Ferry link, respectively.

Events

The only real major event that took place in Harwood was the Harwood Slaughter of 1971. Here, notable Forelli Family hitman, Tommy Vercetti, was sent to assassinate a rival gang member. However, Tommy was set up by his boss, Sonny Forelli, and a group of hitmen arrived to kill him. Tommy, however, shot his way out of the ambush, killing all 11 enemies. After being arrested, he was sentenced to 15 years in Liberty City Prison for 11 counts of second-degree murder, and received "The Harwood Butcher" moniker as a result.

In 1998, during the events of GTA Liberty City Stories, Joseph Daniel O'Toole, after changing sides from the Sindacco Family to the Leone Family, is lured to be "made" shortly after the slaughter of the Sindaccos out of Portland Island, in a ceremony at Harwood. However, it turned out to be a trap and Leone made man, Mickey Hamfists, killed O'Toole.
