Jefferson is a district slightly to the northeast of the city center of Los Santos, San Andreas, modeled after the residential district of Watts in Los Angeles. The Jefferson Towers, the area based off of the Watts Towers can also be found here, despite the towers being in the official zone of East Los Santos. Likewise, despite being based on Watts for the most part, many of the famous and dangerous housing projects of Watts actually appear in other neighborhoods in GTA: San Andreas - including Nickerson Gardens, Imperial Courts, and the Jordan Downs Housing Projects which each appear in Ganton and Idlewood respectively. Jefferson is predominantly African-American, though other pedestrians can be found. Jefferson had a population of 217 in 1992.
Most of southern and central Jefferson consists of small, single-family houses along with a church and the County General Hospital. To the north, a collection of stores with a large car park in addition to the Jefferson Motel can be found.
It is a stronghold for the Ballas, specifically the Rollin' Heights Balla Set during part of 1992, with the exception of the County General Hospital, as it is used by all Los Santos-based gangs. The area is more of a Poor district with a high crime rate, with numerous one-story houses and a few businesses. There are no known residents in Jefferson, although Carl Johnson can purchase a home in Jefferson.
Events of GTA San Andreas
Jefferson is a strong hold of the Rollin' Heights Ballas gang, who use the area as a base from which to attack Ganton, the main strong hold for the Grove Street Families. Jefferson plays a small role in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, although the mission Reuniting the Families largely takes place in Jefferson. During the mission, the individual families within the Grove Street Families meet in order to call a truce, although the meeting is ambushed by the LSPD. Carl Johnson, Sean "Sweet" Johnson, Melvin "Big Smoke" Harris and Lance "Ryder" Wilson then drive through the area, successfully avoiding arrest. Jefferson, if the player chooses, can become Grove Street Families territory or the player can opt to leave the area in the control of the original Jefferson sets.
