5. Grove Street
Early on in the game, Franklin can be seen walking past a building daubed with gangland graffiti that pays homage to Grove Street and the Grove Street Family. Three gangsters dressed in the unmistakable green of the gang stand by while an image of what appears to be a skull wearing a green rag over its mouth adorns the wall. Underneath is a message reading: WELCOME BACK. We missed you last time. that welcomes players back to the sandbox of San Andreas after leaving for Liberty City in GTA IV. The neighbourhood itself doesn't appear like-for-like, but Strawberry, where Franklin lives, is very reminiscent of Grove Street with the impoverished houses and low-riders out on the road.
