Hells Kitchen

I'm curious, I know a lot of areas and neighborhoods were cut from GTA IV since LC is smaller than NYC, but whilst playing GTA IV I've never heard anything about Hells Kitchen, is it in GTA IV under a different name or was it left out completely?

For those of you who don't know Hells Kitchen is a famous neighborhood in Manhattan, New York.

I thought that was Purgatory in the game? I don't know where it's located in reality. But I know there's a Purgatory in mid west Algonquin. Sounds like it could be it..

Purgatory is in Algonquin then, never checked that area out, it looked soo, bland, looking at a neighborhood map of LC and Manhattan they do seem to be in the same place, here's the map for people to check it out, I have to say, I'm disapointed by Liberty City's version of Hell's Kitchen!

Yeah, pretty sure it's Purgatory. Not only is the location pretty much exact, but the name itself gives it away. Purgatory... the place "between" heaven and hell... get it? get it? :cyrix:

I didn't know Purgatory was in Algonquin though for some reason I thought it was in Alderney. Shame it doesn't get that much of a mention in the game.

I swear I've run into an area called Hell's *something* a couple of times. I'm not sure, but I believe that the area in which Alex lives (GF) is Hell's Kitchen.

Hey, just out of curiosity, what's so famous about Hell's Kitchen?

And if I had to bet on it, considering the maps you provided, I'd say Purgatory is Algonquin's Hell's Kitchen.

Apparently, 15 firefighters from a firestation in the neighborhood died in 9/11 (the most of any, I believe), it was the basis of West Side Story, it plays a prominent role in the NYC underworld (gangs), etc.

I thought Hell's Kitchen is "The Meat Quarter" in the game. I guessed it's just another R* sarcasm...

According to Wikipedia, Purgatory is Hell's Kitchen. Now, before you go on saying "Wikipedia can be edited by everyone," that doesn't mean everyone's wrong. For all we know, the editor could live in Hell's Kitchen.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure Purgatory is Hells Kitchen.

Also, I took a close look at the Manhatten neighbourhoods map, and north-Harlem is(/was) called "Little Africa". lmao.

Also early Irish-American gangs resided in Hell's Kitchen, a lot of famous people used to live in Hell's Kitchen and some still do, and another reason, Hell's Kitchen is the part of New York where the events of Max Payne 1 takes place.
