I think this says it all really. It seemed big, especially back then, but just look at how few roads there are and such.

It appears to me that what Niko is overlooking alone, has the size of the three GTA3 islands combined.

The combination of being up in the air, able to see the Earth's relative curvature, and the angle from which the shot was taken (with almost a wide angle effect) can exaggerate the horizon.

in the upper left of queens you can see the worlds fair towers

I mentioned the first two in the paragraph under the screenshot, but Francis Intl. would also be in Dukes, considering it's real life counterpart JFK Intl. is in Queens. Very nice observation!

Yeah, you only knew about citicorp after I posted it weeks ago

Anyways, I have a good question, does anyone see the Cable cars next to the Manhattan Bridge in this shot, I don't see it.

Zidane is right. Remember, this is a helicopter shot. things get smaller in the air. This game will be huge, but its only like a bit bigger than LC.

Yeah so, we're going to get an area smaller than VC I suppose? The PS2 Liberty City is very small. The size of this map is going to be only slightly smaller than all of San Andreas, that's coming straight from Rockstar! What is so hard to get about that statement? Just take a good look at that picture. Everything that you see right there is undoubtedly larger in scale than the entire "old" LC area.
