Upstate Liberty is a location in the Grand Theft Auto series mentioned in both the 3D and HD Universe. It is a geographic region consisting of the portion of the State of Liberty lying north of the Liberty City metropolitan area.
Upstate was first referenced in Grand Theft Auto III and Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories. In Shoreside Vale, there are two road tunnels are located inside Cedar Ridge to the north of the Cedar Grove neighborhood and to the east of Cochrane Dam, which according to the signs in Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories, leads to Upstate. The tunnels do connect to each other at an underground T-junction, where another tunnel branching off at the intersection leads to Upstate.
Close to the edge of Liberty City in GTA III, an easter egg consisting of several names that can be seen on the radar: Chris's Town, Gary's Town, Adamton, Obbeburgh, Woodcunty, Les County, and Aaronsville, all of which were named after some of the programmers and developers of the game.
The fact that these are named as towns indicates that they are depicting a rural upstate area with many small towns, emulating Upstate New York.
