— Manny Escuela.

The Puerto Rican Connection is the final mission in Grand Theft Auto IV given to Niko Bellic by Manny Escuela.

In the cutscene Manny is watching the video of him and says it doesn't make him look street. He then asks Niko to kill some of his old buddies who made fun of him and his new film. So Niko goes to the train station and waits for it. The target you are looking for is on the train, so you need to follow it and eliminate him when he gets off. The chase will lead to Cayuga Avenue in Schottler.

Make your way up to the platform and eliminate the three targets. It might be useful to take cover before launching your attack, but if you start with full health and a decent weapon such as the Micro-SMG, then it shouldn't be necessary.

If you don't kill them when they get off the train, they get into a car and you must follow them until they arrive at the back of the Burger Shot Broker branch, and you have to hunt them down there. After this Niko refuses to do any more work for Manny.

  • Go to the Algonquin Bridge.
  • The target is on that train. Follow the train and take him out when he gets off.

Trivia

  • The mission is an obvious homage to the film The French Connection, in which Gene Hackman, playing a New York cop, chases a hitman on an elevated train in identical fashion.
  • In the beginning cutscene, Manny says "I'm a Lord, not a Lady", referring to a show in another Rockstar game, Max Payne.
  • The train travels on the wrong side of the tracks, an error also found in the missions Three Leaf Clover and For the Man Who Has Everything.
  • On its way, the train passes Hove Beach station, but will not call there.
  • If the second part of "Out of the Closet" isn't completed, the "date" may start during the mission.
  • After completing this mission, Niko will receive a text message from an "Unknown" sender, asking him to meet at the end of the pier at Castle Gardens. Doing so will trigger the first mission for Francis McReary.
  • Upon completing this mission, the random characters, Ilyena, Hossan, Sara and Pathos become available.
