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); Thornton Street to the south (Schottler); and Carson Street and Stillwater Avenue to the southeast (Meadow Hills and Beechwood City). In Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars, the first safehouse where Huang Lee stays is located in Cerveza Heights. Also a manana is wanted for the Stevie's Car Thefts which can be found on Huntington Street in Cerveza Heights.

Influences

Cerveza Heights is based on the New York City neighborhoods of Jackson Heights, Flushing, and Corona (incidentally cerveza is the Spanish word for beer and Corona is the name of a famous Mexican beer) in Queens. Like it's real life counterparts Cerveza Heights is ethnically diverse with notable Chinese, South Asian, and Latino communities. It serves as the Spanish Lords' base of operations in the Dukes and Broker area.

Places of interest

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.

Transport

The Liberty City Subway has a stop at the intersection of Charleston Avenue and Huntington Street. It is served at all times by the 3/8 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, El Burro, GTA III Cover (United Kingdom version), 8-Ball, Kenji Kasen, Misty, Police Maverick (San Andreas box art), Red Motorcycle (Vice City box art), Woman in pink two piece (Vice City box art) and Mercedes. This is similar to easter eggs in the Looking for that Special Someone trailer.
