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 bordered to the south by Saint Mark's and Hepburn Heights.


Harwood is the northernmost district on Portland Island. It is primarily an industrial district, consisting of small scale commercial interests (a gas station, a car dealership, a taxi company, etc.), 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.

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.


Harwood became infamous in 1971 when Forelli Family hitman Tommy Vercetti was sent to assassinate a rival gang member on the orders of his boss, Sonny Forelli. However, Forelli had set up an ambush in an attempt to assassinate Vercetti, and when Vercetti arrived in Harwood he found that eleven hitmen had been sent to kill him. Vercetti survived the ambush and killed all eleven men, landing a fifteen-year prison sentence and gaining the nickname of "The Harwood Butcher".

In 1998, during the events of GTA Liberty City Stories, Joseph Daniel O'Toole switches allegiance to the Leone Crime Family from the Sindacco Crime Family. O'Toole is driven to the junkyard in Harwood to be "made", but is instead killed by Mickey Hamfists.
