The Hickey Bridge looking towards Westdyke.


Hickey Bridge as seen on the map.

The Hickey Bridge is a small bridge in Liberty City in Grand Theft Auto IV connecting Varsity Heights in Algonquin with Leftwood in Alderney. Hickey Bridge is Liberty City's second shortest island crossing; second to Leaper's Bridge.

The Bridge is a continuation of Topaz Street in Algonquin and can also be accessed from its very own exit ramps from the Union Drive West. At the Alderney end, the bridge leads straight into the Plumbers Skyway.

The Hickey Bridge is in a location relative to the George Washington Bridge between New York and New Jersey. The Hickey Bridge does bear little bit of resemblance to the George Washington Bridge, like the little truss towers at each end of the bridge and the mid-span trusswork based on the trusswork covering the lower deck of the GW bridge. However, although not correct in regard to location, the bridge does have some resemblance to the Roosevelt Island Bridge, which connects Roosevelt Island (see Colony Island) to Queens (see Dukes).

On the Algonquin side of the bridge, two Flying Rats can be found. One beneath the bridge which can be shot by boat, and one on the right side of the lane traveling towards Algonquin, it can be found before the traffic lights.

Occasionally, an Annihilator spawns flying over the bridge heading south while crossing either side of the bridge.


  • Hickey is a dark-colored skin mark left on any part of the body after having it sucked for a long period of time.
  • Its name could also be a reference to Thomas Hickey, an Irish soldier in the Continental Army during the American Revolution that attempted to assassinate George Washington (the namesake of the real-life George Washington Bridge, which is one of the influences of Hickey Bridge) in 1776 (for another similar naming pattern, see Booth Tunnel).
