Liberty City is a city in the Grand Theft Auto series that appears in several games, and has three different renditions.

Liberty City is used in two titles:


  • In the 3D Universe, Liberty City is loosely based on a series of East Coast and Midwestern cities, including New York City, Philadelphia, Detroit, Baltimore, Chicago and Pittsburgh but without being any one in particular [1][2], while in the 2D and HD Universes, Liberty City is based on New York City only.
  • Liberty City is a real place, located in Miami, Florida. Miami also being the same city that Vice City is based on.
  • Liberty City's name may have been inspired by the Statue of Liberty.
  • Liberty City is the location that appears the most times in the series, having appeared in nine games.
  • Liberty City is frequently portrayed as a horrible place to live in. The Grand Theft Auto IV rendition is frequently voted "the worst place in America".

  2. That Liberty City was not particularly meant to be New York. That was meant to be a hybrid of a generic American city: Chicago, Pittsburgh, Detroit, New York, Philly. An old, post-industrial American city. [GTA III] was America, whereas Vice City was clearly Miami.
