Character

Westdyke is a large and sparse suburban township in Alderney and also Alderney's wealthiest township. North Westdyke is made up of large homes and mansions in a quiet suburbia, home to some of Alderney & Liberty's elite such as Jimmy Pegorino, Don of Alderney's Pegorino Family, the celebutante socialite Cloe Parker and Bryce Dawkins, and the Deputy Mayor of Liberty City. South Westdyke is more dense with population and services and close to where it starts to merge with Leftwood. Along the north and east coastlines of Westdyke makes up the Alderney Beach, which is a mix of beaches and cliffs.

Influences

Westdyke appears to contain elements of Weehawken, New Jersey, as well as other towns from Bergen County and the Jersey Shore in general (but Alderney's districts as a whole poorly represent New Jersey's). The cliffs that separate the abandoned mansion as well as the streets between it and the Hickey Bridge from the West River are likely influenced by the Palisades cliffs.

Stevie's Car Thefts

In the side mission 'Stevie's Car Thefts', a gold Turismo can be found parked next to a posh house on Owl Creek Ave, the poshest road in Westdyke. When the player breaks into it, a alarm will sound, and there are usually cops patrolling the area. So as it is a supercar, try and lose them on the way back to the garage in Bohan.
