I always thought it was based on New Jersey, since it looks similar to Alderney in GTA IV, which is based on New Jersey. But then alot of people say it's Brooklyn. Is it just a generic mix of both places?

From gta.wikia.com:

Based on the industrial area of New York City, Portland mostly resembles the run-down areas of Brooklyn and Queens that are located directly outside of Manhattan.

The Portland Beach area was created to look like the beachy areas in and around New York, such as Coney Island and Fire Island, which are near the shores of Staten Island and Long Island, respectively. Chinatown, obviously enough, takes its inspiration from the Manhattan neighborhood of the same name. The Saint Mark's district takes it name from Little Italy in Manhattan. Trenton takes its inspiration from New Jersey's capital city and the Red Light District resembles Manhattan's 42nd Street of the 1980s.
