GTA IV sightseeing – how close is Liberty City to the actual Big Apple?

Gaming, Web 2.0

Do you know GTA IV’s Liberty City inside-out yet? Have you at least memorised where your house is and where all the strip clubs are? Also, have you ever spent £1200 on flying to New York for a weekend, just so you can save about £25 on buying socks and pants really cheap in GAP on Fifth Avenue?

If you answered “SHIT YES!” to both of the above, you will like this very much – it’s some guy’s collection of photos of New York compared to screenshots of GTA IV’s NYC-inspired Liberty City. See what is real and what is fiction over on his Flickr page.


NYC and LC are “pretty close” it would appear, although the skyline’s seriously wonky in certain areas. Not that you’ll really care, seeing as you’re usually looking at the skyline through the window of an upside-down and burning car in GTA IV anyway.
