Liberty City Map Dissection Thread

Anything new we discover, lets get it listed and organized in here. I'm typing up the descriptions for each borough. Contribute anything you find!

Liberty City Sights ---------------------------------------------------------


Algonquin

Situated between the West River and Humboldt River, Algonquin is the beating heart of Liberty City. Catch a breathtaking view of the Statue of Happiness from the Castle Gardens esplanade. Stop off in Little Italy for a dish of lukewarm Spaghetti Bolognese straight out of a jar or if counterfeit goods and suspiciously cheap food are more your thing, nearby Chinatown is also worth a visit. Max your credit card in Suffolk's trendy shopping district before heading up to the viewing platform at the top of Liberty City's tallest building, the Rotterdam Tower. Line up with thousands of other out-of-towners getting gypped with other-priced tickets to shows in Star Junction, take a stroll through Middle Park, Algonquin's famous urban ~~~~. Finish off your day with some live stand-up comedy at the Split Sides ~~ black out on cocktails in Lancaster's Superstar Cafe.


Broker

People are beginning to discover that there is a wealth of culture to be experienceds on the east side of the Humboldt River. With its brownstones and tree-lined streets, Broker offers some welcome respite from the chaotic pace of life in Algonquin. On a nice summer's day nothing beats a stroll through Outlook Park or a hotdog on Firefly Island's famous boardwalk. Although the heyday of this amusement park has come and gone, there is still a lot to see and do, like bowling a frame or two at Memory Lanes. Hove Beach's bustling Easter European neightbourhood has an atmosphere and personality all of its own. Some Russian hospitality at Comrades Bar and a few vodkas will soon separate the men --- CUT OFF --- supper club and local --- CUT OFF --- from the weird to the --- CUT OFF ---


Dukes

If you are arriving by plane, your first steps on Liberty City turf will probably be in Dukes. Francis International Airport sprawls across the eastern tip of the borough and services as an international hub for the rest of the country. Dukes should be experienced first-hand rather than from a cab window as you race to catch your flight home. One of the newer attractions is the National Union of Contemporary Arts (NUCA), a museum of modern art crammed full of canvases with squiggly lines and random objects on podiums. To the east of NUCA lies Meadow Park, where you will find relics like the Monoglobe and Liberty State Pavillion Towers leftover from a world fair half a century ago. If you are comfortable with drunken men throwing lethal weapons around a crowded bar, finish your day with a game of darts and a few beers at the famous Steinway Beer Garden.


Bohan

The Bohan people are some of the friendliest in Liberty City, especially the girls in scuffed stilettos on the street corners at Chase Point. Show a lack of respect, however, and your next stop will be the Bohan Medical & Dental Center. Also please have in mind that every neighbourhood in Bohan believes that it invented hip-hop so, in the interests of self-preservation, please try to ~~~~ the locals. Welham Parkway in Boulevard is a beautiful spot to escape the bustle of the city for a few hours. Down a six-pack of Logger, take out some rollerbladers and go swimming in the lake. At the tip of Northern Gardens lies one of the most tranquil and picturesque shorelines in the whole of Liberty City with hardly a hypodermic needle in sight.


Beyond Liberty City -------------------------------------------------------


Alderney

It is not all women with big hair and men with tight t-shirts and it is not just a place where people from Algonquin go to dump their trash. Alderney is also home to beautiful beaches, self-service gas stations, superhighways, heavy industry, palpable suburban angst and diners where the coffee is stronger than speed. Visit the Alderney State Correctional Facility on the east side of Acter Industrial Park for spectacular views of Algonquin's iconic skyline and a glimpse of what could happen to you if you carry on fiddling your tax returns. Take a walk along Alderney's idyllic western shoreline or explore the deserted casino at the northern tip of Westdyke. Discover parts of animals you never thought existed with a dinner at Mr. Fuks Rice Box in Alderney City's Korea Town and then blow the rest of your children's college fund on a private room at Honkers in Tudor.

The comedy club is called "Split SIDES". You can read that part on one of the zoomed out screenshots of the map. Still can't see what's after Urban though, looked like Vanic?

Maybe, and this is a big maybe, now that there is a prison we will be released from there as opposed to a police station when we get busted?

Well, there was a prison in NJ when I went to NYC, but I think its only for show/missions, not actual gameplay.

Well there's definitely a Pay N' Spray. I remember an earlier article made hints that you won't be able to use it. But it appears to be there, and I guess the article meant that it won't always work to drive the cops away?

Imagine using it as a fort against the army in free-roam MP with 15 others. Or against 8 others..

edit: Can anybody make out where an Army Base might be? I just wanna know where I'd find the tank, and the attack chopper.

Now we know the name of little two islands - Colony Island (below Algonquin bridge/Manhattan bridge) and Charde Island (below the East Borough Bridge/Triborough Bridge) - both represent Roosevelt island and ??? island (not sure on this one).
