It is one of the destinations for Taxi Driver side missions. During the mission The Fuzz Ball, a police ball is held there, and Claude is instructed by Luigi Goterelli to deliver his prostitutes to the ball.
The Old School Hall was originally supposed to be a real school in the game, complete with children and School Buses around the area. However, these were all removed from the game; this is believed to be due to the concern of killing children in the game.
The Beta images show that it had bright walls and plants around it; similar to an elementary school or pre-school. Since the beta was removed, it was changed to a ballroom.
- In the GTA III mission, "The Fuzz Ball", two police cars are parked in the parking area, accompanied by a banner saying "Liberty Police Annual Ball".
